For as long as I can remember, I have made my own greeting cards. The instant that someone showed me I can do that sort of thing on my computer years ago I have been making my own ever since.
Sure, you don’t get the little chain or whatever hanging from some of the fancier ones that the stores have, but you can make it just a little more personal.
At the end of the day, it’s all about deciding who you want to give money to. Hallmark has been a company that I have not been giving any money to for a long time. Now, it seems that this decision of mine decades ago has been a well thought out decision with their recent actions.
Hallmark is the first big company to ask for political donations back in the wake of the Capitol riot and the later vote to certify Biden as president.
Some companies, including Amazon, have suspended future political contributions to Republican lawmakers who voted against Biden’s certification, while others have paused all donations to both Republicans and Democrats.
The greeting card company has asked Hawley to return donations totaling $7,000, and Marshall $5,000. The donations were made though its Political Action Committee (PAC) over the past two years, it told Insider.
When Congress met to certify the result of the US presidential election, Trump supporters stormed the Capitol. Five people died during the riot, including one police officer who supposedly had a stroke after getting hit in the head.
Just hours later, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called on Hawley, as well as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, to resign, blaming them for the violence at the Capitol.
In December, Hawley said he would object to Biden’s certification, the first senator to make the announcement. He is a staunch Trump ally.
