Atlanta— “How many times have you found yourself in this scenario: It’s a friend’s or relative’s birthday and you’re driving to the store at the last minute to buy a card. You also must go get stamps. “I’ve been there more times than I care to remember,” shares Culture Greetings’ founder, Dr. Dionne Mahaffey.
It’s a problem Mahaffey has solved for the rest of us. Launched today, her Atlanta-based company, Culture Greetings, offers contemporary greeting cards specifically geared towards Black people and other people of color. The cards can be personalized and queued for mailing – right from your desk. Making multiple trips to the store and post office to send a card isn’t a viable option for most busy people Mahaffey learned from personal experience and extensive research. Social media, while a convenient way to say Happy Birthday or Congratulations, often fail at delivering a true personal connection. So Culture Greetings merges the best of both worlds by marrying the traditional social interaction of greeting cards with 21st century technology.
