The Gyft Tree

We decided that we needed another good way to spread the cards around at different events, and so, the idea of the Gyft Tree was born. This will be an 8 foot tall metal wire tree sculpture that will hold approximately 450 laminated cards. Once we get enough funding we'll make it!



The picture above is a scale model. If you look down at the bottom left, you will see how the Gyft cards will look when attached to the tree. We're planning on coiling the wire at the end so the cards are removable, but won't fly off in high winds. We are also planning on using side-emitting fiber optics or EL wire to light the tree at night. When construction starts, we will post photos here. If anyone out there has any special knowledge or connections and wants to help, please contact heather at gyft dot org. If you feel compelled to throw in a couple bucks to help fund the construction of the tree, we would love a donation!
