Kody Bateman founded SendOutCards in 2004. In 1989, as Kody was rushing

to move his young family to New York City for a new job opportunity, he

ignored a prompting to say goodbye to his brother Kris in person. A few

months later, he received word his brother died in a tragic accident.

Kody made a promise to himself and to his brother Kris that night, that

he would never ignore another prompting and would find a way to help

others act on their inner promptings. From this promise, SendOutCards

was born.

SendOutCards also works with other businesses and charities. For more
