What is its purpose?

These cards make great gifts! Give the whole deck, or just appropriate cards, to someone (including yourself) who:
  • needs to learn to relax more
  • is recently out of a relationship
  • needs cheering up
  • has low self-esteem
  • seems lonely

Multiple decks are great for support-group members.
Also great for counselors to keep on hand for their clients.
