How It Works
Previous Honor Cards
Your participation will enable the hungry and homeless in your community to share
in the bounty of God's love for all people during this season of sharing.
Homelessness is a challenge for nearly every community. Individuals and families need emergency care, affordable housing, health care, education and spiritual encouragement. The Honor Card program is an annual campaign to raise awareness and funds to help meet the needs of the homeless. During the holiday season, Honor Cards are available for a minimum donation of $5 each. Individuals who purchase Honor Cards send them to friends and family, indicating that they have been honored by a donation to a local outreach agency. All proceeds go directly to each participating agency.
A chance meeting in 1987 with Mike Saavedra, a homeless man, changed Bill Mangum’s perspective on life forever. That outreach gave Bill a new view on how he would use his artistic talent to help those less fortunate. Since then Bill has been an advocate, donating his artistic skills and publishing gifts to make The Honor Card program one of the most well run and leveraged charitable programs in the country. Within each beautiful annual painting is the subtle image and story of the needy. With underwriting support from Wells Fargo Bank and Mike and Sarah Kearney the Honor Card program has expanded to thirteen communities across North Carolina. Today the Honor Card program is in it’s 26th year and has raised over five million dollars to support the needy and homeless across our state.
