Our Story

My son Kyle and I started our greeting card company - Ky's Kards (formerly Enkourage Kards) - with a vision to provide a meaningful employment opportunity for Kyle (who has Down Syndrome) and others with different abilities, and to inspire others to spread encouragement and kindness, one kard at a time.
We love being a small part of making someone's day when they receive one of our cards with a handwritten message from a friend or family member!
All of our cards are thoughtfully designed by Kyle's graphic designer sisters, Lindsey and Carly.  Each unique design is inspired by Down Syndrome - Trisomy 21.  For example, some feature 21 flowers, the 21st chromosome, and even Kyle's unique fingerprint.

Ky's Kards is active in the community.  A portion of the proceeds from each card sold is donated to the Down Syndrome Association of MN and Special Olympics of MN - two organizations that have had a positive impact on Kyle's life.
