Local Artist Creates 'Cards From Home' For Military


Ithaca artist Patrick J. O'Connor, has founded a unique and heartfelt project aimed at giving back to our military. O'Connor is hand painting cards featuring icons and landscapes from any city in the United States. His project is called 'Cards From Home' and these cards can be used for any occasion, but imagine the joy when you send one to loved ones in the military who are stationed overseas and are missing home. A percentage of the proceeds from the sales of the cards will go to the Navy Seal Foundation, which provides immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare Community and its families.

For both Patrick O'Connor and his wife, Mary, this cause hits home. Their son is currently serving overseas and they wanted a way to not only give back to the silent warriors who are protecting our country but to also give them a piece of their home; the end result being "Cards From Home."  A portion of the proceeds go to the Navy SEAL Foundation.
