It's my great pleasure to let you know that Lifestart Foundation has launched an online shop selling unique crafts handmade by Lifestart recipients in Vietnam.

Currently available are a selection of note cards which are made by artist Trong Sinh, a Lifestart recipient. Some of you will remember Sinh from earlier blog posts.

They come in sets of 5 original water colour painted note cards on handmade poona paper with envelopes included.

Presently two sets are available in the Lifestart Foundation Online Store: Note Cards and Christmas Greeting Cards. Each set is AU$20 plus shipping which is calculated for Australian and International addresses. See image below.

Also available on the store is a link through to artist profiles. Presently we have profiles for Sinh and the Lifestart Foundation Workshop - we hope to have some of their beautiful products available in the online store in the near future.

You can get to the store via links on the Lifestart Foundation website homepage or directly on Etsy

Purchases can be made securely through PayPal using Visa, Mastercard, or a PayPal account.

While we currently only have two products available we will have a wider range of

products available soon. We will keep you updated with new additions via this newsletter.

I hope that you will support this new initiative and purchase your Christmas Cards online. The packets of Hand Painted cards also make a lovely Christmas gift with meaning. Some creative supporters have purchased these cards and framed them, they look absolutely beautiful presented in this way. Our aim as always is to create a sustainable income stream for Lifestart recipients.
Please forward this blog to anyone who maybe interested in our online store and products.
Lots of Love from

great idea
Hi Karen, the online shop is a great idea! Congrats I hope it does really well for you. I've just learned one of my colleagues at La Trobe is heading over next year to do some volunteering for Lifestart. It's a small world, particularly where Viet nam is concerned. All roads seem to lead back there.
