The Orphan Card Shop is a division of Faces of Siberia a non-profit 501c organization that is dedicated to orphans and children in need in the city of Ekaterinburg and the out lying Sverdlovsk region of Russia. Our Organization was established in 2002 after the adoption of our son from the region. During that process we witnessed countless situations that could be made better through donations and support. We offer assistance to children’s hospitals and orphanages, local shelters & schools in the region on a case by case basis.

One of our most successful programs is our Orphan Artwork cards. Art is a creative outlet for the orphans and is an important component of the orphanages we work with in Russia. Through the art programs the children are able to express their feelings, hopes, dreams, & experiences. After participating in our camp programs many of the orphans began sending artwork as a "Thank-You". The orphanage caretakers wrote to us expressing that our programs were having a positive impact on the children. We were so moved and inspired by the artwork of these children we developed the Orphan Artwork Card program, turning their beautiful art into cards. The children who participate in this program are given a sense of pride and recognition. Through this program we are able to continue our work with the orphans, affording them opportunities outside the walls of their orphanages.

Our cards are Fair Trade, which means your purchase directly benefits the orphans. Proceeds are used to fund many of our programs including winter camps, educational fieldtrips and The Birthday Club. Visit Faces of Siberia to learn more about our current projects.
