For the fifteenth year we are pleased to bring these delightful cards to our friends, neighbors, and supporters. Known over the years as "the CASA cards" these cards are drawn by students in the Virgin Islands. All sales of the cards benefit abused and neglected children through our Child Advocacy program at VIVA for Children.

The cards are currently available online at

Local retailers as of Nov. 14 include east to west:
Seaside Market in Gallows Bay
Gallows Bay Hardware Store
Dive Experience on Christiansted Boardwalk
A Better Copy across from Christiansted Post office
Sampson House further up the street(usually good street parking available)
Progressive Veterinary Hospital in Princesse across from Blues BBQ
The Palms at Pelican Cove Resort in Princesse
Polly's at the Pier in Frederiksted.

We'll be adding locations later this week and we'll be at Starving Artists at Whim on Sunday Nov. 29 (Thanksgiving weekend).

St Thomas customers we'll be stocking Draughting Shaft before Thanksgiving.

Any questions give me a call at 340 718 2272 or an email at

Thank you for supporting our child advocacy program that has been on St Croix helping abused and neglected children since 1995.

Thank you! I wish we had the CASA program here on St Thomas, but I do support them through the Christmas cards every year!

Thanks East Ender! Hopefully some of the work that we do here influences DHS policy and procedures for kids in foster care both here and in St thomas 🙂

Working to get the cards to Draughting Shaft in the coming week...

Those are always a big hit and some of the local businesses like to send them out

Yes speee1dy we have been really fortunate for such great community support. At one time we had about sixty businesses using our cards! In this economy that number has dropped but we still have about 25 companies each year that order from us and it's a big help in underwriting the overall cost of producing the cards for retail sale.

Businesses still have time to order.... selection and price list online at

And thanks to those businesses that have been with us for so many years. Our cards have traveled all around the world including to our military men and women away from home (through Delegate Christiansted's office for many years).

It's great to know the delegate sent your cards to the troops! Hopefully our current delegate will retain the tradition. Helps to decide if she gets my vote next time.
