Paperflavor Gives Back
Our mission at Paperflavor.com is to spread warm wishes and happy faces. Below are charities and programs we have donated to in the past calendar year. We hope our small gifts created smiles and continue to inspire others to pay it forward. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with inquiries.
The Paunovich Family
Our heart goes out to Penny Paunovich, one of Paperflavor's biggest fans, whose three year battle with breast cancer, ended in January of 2012. Although our charitable "penny tote" has sold out, you can still visit her blog to donate to her loving family. Our hearts and thoughts are with her family. We thank you for your support.
San Francisco General Hospital
The San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) looks to bring happiness and joy to the children at SFGH during the holidays. Each member of the SFGH team is currently finishing up a post-baccalaureate program at San Francisco State University and applying to medical school in the summer of 2012. They all have strong interests in giving back to the community and have come together on this project to do just that. While their interests in medicine vary, they all recognize how giving back just a little bit can go a far way. We hope that you share in their enthusiasm and help them make the holidays an amazing time for the children at SFGH! For more information, please visit http://phpcptoydrive.us/.

Ripple Effect Dragon Boat Team
Ripple Effect is a San Francisco Bay Area dragon boat paddling and activities club made up entirely of dynamic young (and young at heart) free spirits who live to have fun, exercise, eat well and paddle hard. Although the team’s main goal is simply to have a great time both on and off the water, racing is definitely at the core of the team’s being. The rush of twenty paddlers, a steersperson and drummer working is among the most exhilarating experiences in team sports. For more information, please visit www.ripplesf.com.
