Topic tags/keywords: card raffle fundraiser donate cutting board

Hey All,

My girlfriend’s University’s sports team is having a fundraiser for Cancer and I am donating an end grain cutting board for their raffle. It is a Maple and Walnut Brick Pattern.
I am debating on typing up a little card to give with. Maybe to something like it’s handmade with Maple and Walnut, finished with a food safe oil. And maybe mention how they can take care of it.
And if I do decide to do one, I’m not too sure on what to say on it or how to word it. Any suggestions/tips/pointers/guidelines?

Sorry if this sounds confusing,

Chris, this is typical of the card I enclose with gift cutting boards. I go to the Internet for the scientific names of the wood species used in the board. I print the message on pastel colored card stock.

This end grain cutting board is constructed of Yellow Heart (Euxylophora paraensis), Lyptus (a hybrid of Eucalyptus grandis and E. urophylla) and Bloodwood (Brosimum paraense). It is bonded with PVA glue and finished with food grade mineral oil. These are all food safe products. The board will be happy in the kitchen serving its intended purpose. It may be cleaned with a damp cloth or even washed briefly with soapy water and dried immediately. It will not appreciate extended contact with liquids or soaking with water. An occasional light coat of mineral or olive oil will keep it content.
