Pink Tarot - I am one of the artists who contributed card design for this deck

I want to tell you about a really important project I'm part of to benefit breast cancer research. Its called Tarot Pink and it features 60 Tarot artists coming together to show our community support for women everywhere. I'll be creating The Hermit and the Five of Coins so be sure to check it out.
I love this project because it spans way beyond Tarot- it is based on seeing real-world benefits to a cause that touches us all so deeply. Whether you're a Tarot-lover, card collector, supporter of the arts, this project has a little something for everyone.
Check out the long list of contributors below. This is a beautiful gesture from the Tarot artist community. May we all be so blessed to have an opportunity to be a part of the healing we pray to see in the world.

The Challenge and Our Cause
Tarot is known to inspire, offer perspective and provide insight into life's many emotional, spiritual and physical challenges. Used as a Healing Tarot, it can offer Inspiration, Empowerment and Support in one's healing journey in the battle against breast cancer. 

Inspired by the ongoing challenges of dealing with breast cancer, a group of the Tarot community's most accomplished creators have come together to collaborate on a special Tarot deck to support this cause. Tarot Pink for Cancer is being created as an inspirational healing tool, and to serve as a fund raiser to benefit breast cancer research. 

Tarot Pink for Cancer represents a healing Tarot created to provide Inspiration, Empowerment, and Support for the Wellness Journey that many women will or have taken in their courageous battle against breast cancer. Over 60 of Tarot's most talented creative people have contributed their time and talents to support this noteworthy cause. 

Creative Inspiration
This Group is the Creative Power behind several hundred Tarot decks and books, and they have published over a dozen Tarot decks that have been honored with Top Ten Tarot deck recognition. Collectively, they have derived creative energy and inspiration from each other, and have come together to create a Deck of a Lifetime. The deck consists of 78 cards created by each artist and accompanied by their personal interpretations and inspirations. You will find Tarot Pink for Cancer to be a beautifully rendered collection of inspirational images created by Tarot's best talents, with a special message of empowerment and healing. It's an inspirational  deck suited for your own wellness journey, or for a relative or friend who might need the supportive message embodied by the deck. 

The Tarot and Rewards
Under the sponsorship of Tarot eCards, the App Publisher (WizardToo) will issue both a Tarot Pink for Cancer Mobile App and a printed Tarot deck. The Tarot Pink App will be released for both the Apple iPad and iPhone, and Android devices in July. The Tarot Pink for Cancer deck will be published in September. The deck will consist of large format cards (3 1/4" X 5 1/2") and will be available for Breast Cancer Awareness month (October). The funds raised from this campaign will be used to support the development, programming, and printing of the deck and App. A significant portion from the sale of these products will be donated to support breast cancer research. Tarot eCards is committed to make this an important outreach to the world community and your support would be much appreciated.
