Holiday Cards for the Cure!

Help find a cure for blood cancer while showing your friends, family, and associates how important they are! Give a gift in their honor this holiday season by purchasing your holiday cards through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. 

Introducing local photographer Emmanuel Panagiotakis as our new Holiday Card artist! 

Native to Chios, Greece, Emmanuel moved to the United States in 1988 with his wife to start their family. In 2004, Emmanuel bought his first digital camera. Quickly, he taught himself proper technique and technical perfection by reading the owner’s manual in a second language. Today, he dedicates his time traveling to bring the beauty of the outdoors into his gallery.

With his inaugural card, Emmanuel transports us to a beautiful Pittsburgh winter setting: The soft snow of the holiday season has arrived. Emmanuel's perspective overlooks the Roberto Clemente Bridge and the rest of downtown Pittsburgh from across the Allegheny River. Home for the Holidays welcomes all to enjoy the beauty of Pittsburgh during the festive winter season. 


Cards can be ordered blank inside or with the standard greeting. Eighty cents of every $1 card is tax-deductible. They can even be personalized for you or your business for an additional fee. Add your company logo, electronic signatures, and more! 

The card measures 5" x 7" and the image is printed in full color on white cardstock.
