The first Christmas cards of the year for 50 years
For 50 years, every September before Christmas, the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists’ Christmas cards have been the very first seasonal cards to be sent all around the globe to potential customers.

In Australia, the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA) has been distributing its cards to millions of households every year since it was established in 1970.

Christmas cards can be ordered by contacting the MFPA on (02) 9698 3933 or visiting

Founded in 1956 by a group of European artists, the MFPA is a self-help organisation which gives people with disabilities the opportunity to fulfil their creative ambitions while still maintaining financial independence by selectively selling their artworks.

To become a member, an artist must qualify by painting using a brush held in either their mouth or foot, having lost the use of their hands through an illness or accident.

Released for MFPA by Dennis Rutzou Public Relations.
