Hurdlecards is a Maryland-based company that writes, mats and frames sentiments that cover the gamut. These wordgifts have appeared in the hallways of The Pentagon heralding soldiers to Children's National Hospital saluting medical professionals who've helped to save young lives. A former education reporter from Connecticut, Sondra Jordan began the wordgift company two decades ago as a hobby. The hobby exploded when she was commissioned to create 200 employee incentive wordgifts for the US Department of Interior. The focus is to give readers pause to reflect on life's chores and challenges; its pain and its pleasures. Hurdlecards- in subtle and often humorous words - incites all to leap over life's fences.
