The Honor Card program provides support to outreach agencies across the state.
100% of your contributions go directly to assist the needy and homeless in your community.
Through a chance meeting in 1987 with Mike Saavedra, a homeless man, Bill Mangum’s perspective on life was forever changed. That good Samaritan outreach gave Bill a new perspective on how he could 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 painting is the subtle image and story of the needy. With underwriting support from Wells Fargo Bank and an anonymous donor, the Honor Card program has expanded to thirteen communities across North Carolina. Today the Honor Card program is in its 32nd year and has raised nearly $8 million dollars to support the needy and homeless across our state.
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.
