Chanukah, oh Chanukah, come light the menorah! Thus begins the catchy children's song on which the background music to our new card is based.
Hanukkah is unusually late this year, starting on 24th December and running for eight days until January 1st, so the timing is just right to send this card to all your Jewish friends!
And Christmas Day is nearly upon us too, so it seems like a good time to review the season's bumper crop of new cards. We've had the nostalgic White Christmas, the interactive fun of Christmas Lights, the delightful story of The Little Shepherd, and the destructive mayhem of Snow Glow – not to mention two pretty new note cards.
It's always worth noting at this time of year that while you'd normally only send a single paper Christmas card to each of your … [Continue reading...]

"Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye" is the most important song I've
ever released, because the subject is a matter of life or death.
The fact is, bullied teens often commit suicide.
That's why iconic pop singer Taylor Dayne and
legendary DJ Paul Oakenfold have both joined me
in this special project.
All net proceeds from video views, song streams and downloads of
"Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye" will go to anti-bullying charities.
Peace and Love,
