Noteworthy returns to Christmas by the Sea

Nov 22, 2019

Camden — For 11 years Noteworthy, a group of local and distant women, have been gathering irregularly to create one-of-a -kind collage cards to increase awareness and generate funds for Partners In Health. Each year at Christmas By the Sea there is a “pop-up” site and this year they return to the Smiling Cow for the two-day sale.

According to Noteworthy founder Mary Amory, “The goal of noteworthy has always been to engage the card makers, the card shoppers and the card recipients in a stimulating experience that results in supporting positive change in drastically needy and far distant environments. Each $4 card buys medicine, fuel, supplies or contributes to a nurse midwife salary – cumulatively, we are making a difference.”

The cards are only sold at Zoot Coffee in Camden throughout the year. All of the income goes directly to the work of Partners In Health, founded by Dr. Paul Farmer and Ophelia Dahl and Jim Yong Kim 30 years ago.

The pop-up site will be The Smiling Cow on Main Street during Christmas By the Sea, Friday, Dec. 6 from 3 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. There will be over 500 original cards and a special sale on reproduced cards. In addition there is an “Alternative Gift” card available for $25 that will provide infant exams to determine the specialized care an infant needs to thrive at the outset of life. For more information, contact Mary Amory, 20 John St., Camden, ME 04843, or 446-3633.
