A personal word from Vivian . . .
Kisses™ children are drawn with their eyes covered to remind us to see with our hearts. That is the trademark of Kisses™ and the theme of all of my creations and those I partner with in social expression, business, and life.
Business plans will answer business questions. But what has business got to do with the art of Vivian Greene? Let me explain:
Greeting cards featuring my Kisses™ characters – Angels, Children, Devas, Faeries, and our co-creations with some of the most inspirational wisdom leaders ever are different from other commercial products because of their message and vision.

The financial aspects are covered in the business plan. This covers our purpose and our commitment.
I’m committed to enrichment, to helping others, to conveying a message of love and shared humanity. Kisses™ has been compared to Mickey Mouse and Peanuts. Commercial success may compare, but Kisses™ is even more. Our business is an investment in love and my faith in it goes beyond money.
During my entire career, I’ve had to balance the bottom line and the highest good, material value and moral values, formal protective legal contracts and trust. I have achieved that balance by living the message of harmony expressed in my work. I teach values as well as management: I investigate the way employees are treated before placing manufacturing contracts. I’ve initiated a new concept that allows retail outlets and individual volunteers to sponsor third world children. Partnering with other companies and individuals who live Gandhi’s message – “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” – this is our next step. Share the vision with me. I hope for participation from people who — given all the grownup, solid investment information available — still seek something more.
While the business potential offers is explained in detail in the business plan, this simple one page letter explains the intangible purpose in my heart. This is an opportunity to invest in things that really aren’t for sale: love, intuition, miracles, dreams and Kisses™.
I hope you will invest in love with us as we expand our success to reach an even wider audience and truly make a difference. I hope you will invest in this venture, but even more, I hope you will invest in our vision. The two are one.
My award winning poem (my autobiography) was the first card to sell nationwide without my Kisses™ characters.
It has become an income stream for other artists as well.
In this picture, it is featured in a shadow box developed by Pictures Plus Hawaii – selling for 100 times the cost of the card.
The stars also adorn teddy bears, tissues, and even a hot water bottle.
It’s one example of my workshop Write To The Heart, and Write To The Bank to help others prosper.
