An update for 2019
We all want better connections
We all want more authentic friendships and relationships. Getting to know the depths of a person’s experience and feelings creates this authenticity… but it’s not always easy to know where to start. Cards to the Heart gives us the opportunity to open up and share about what makes us happy, what scares us, and what we have learned along the way by encouraging openness and vulnerability in conversation.
The first small deck of cards was made just for me and my partner. We loved playing the game together, so I printed some more and gave them to my friends as gifts - they were so delighted with them that they asked how to get more copies to give to their friends. So, after a year and a half of tweaks and updates, I ran a successful Kickstarter in 2017 and had 1,000 decks printed. Now, 2 years later those decks have made their way out into the world and another version is here for you all to enjoy! Most of the questions are deliberately open for interpretation to allow for answers that best fit your mood, and desired level of intimacy. There aren’t any “tell me about the first time” type questions, so you can re-use them over and over as your relationships evolve and grow over time.

What are the risks and where does the money go?
The project was previously run as a successful Kickstarter in 2017 so this is a simple artwork update and new print run using the same printers as before.
If there are not enough backers to fund the print run, pre-orders will be fully refunded and we can all return to our regular lives.
While the primary goal of this project is to fund a print run, any profits that come from it are re-invested in more art. Typically in the form of donations to Toronto art projects for Burning Man.
