We're dedicated to empowering and inspiring people to create a life they love, rather than one they wish to escape from. This includes a responsibility to use our talents to leave the world better than we found it.
Dear Valued Customer,
The prints we create are not good enough.
We pour our heart and soul into them, pride ourself in their attention to detail and provide them to you using the best materials, all in hopes that they adorn your walls and provide you with joy whenever you look at them. But lately I’ve felt that our work could go even further and far beyond the walls they hang on.
The truth is your patronage give us power and we feel that we can use that power to change lives.
Have you ever wondered what it is that allows some people to reach their goals so effortlessly while others seem stuck in the same situation year after year? I know I have.
This is why I am writing to tell you about our Buy a Print, Build A School program at Calm The Ham.
A CHANCE TO PROVIDE KNOWLEDGE TO OTHERS
You see, I'm a big believer that knowledge and education can give people the confidence and skills needed to change their circumstances and reach any goal they set for themselves. I fundamentally believe that the earlier a person has access to knowledge the better off they will be and that every child should have access to a quality education to give them a future with endless possibilities.
I'm passionate about the work I create for customers like you, but to be honest, lately I have felt that it is not enough. I’m dedicated to empowering and inspiring people to create a life they love, rather than one they wish to escape from. That’s why I’ve created the Buy a Print, Build a School program.
It's a chance for us to give others access to knowledge - knowledge they can use to change their own lives, inspire themselves and, in doing so, inspire others.
Knowledge That Is Not Used Is The Same As No Knowledge At All
I started Calm The Ham to escape the monotony of the 9-5, explore the world and to have a creative outlet that gave my life meaning.
I feel a deep responsibility to use my talents to leave the world better than I found it, and since you have been someone who has supported me on this journey, I wanted you to be the first to know about it.
An Investment In The Success of Others
You've shown your support since we started, now the Buy a Print, Build a School project is our way of giving back in appreciation. It's our way of showing our gratitude to you as well as the world at large.
For every print (or other Calm The Ham product) that you buy, we will be giving $1 to Pencils of Promise to help build a school in Guatemala.
"Pencils of Promise is a global movement of passionate individuals, many of which are the most dynamic and impactful young leaders we have ever seen. They are committed to supporting a world with greater educational opportunity for all."
