Spreading smiles and foolishness

Taking this initiative ahead they have launched ‘Joy Cards’, a greeting card portal which will aim at reviving the old trend of sending cards to our loved ones and making them smile.
The Joy cards are concept based greeting cards, designed in such a way that the customer can easily relate to them. The cards can be browsed on www.21fools.com/store and purchased there itself. The cards would be delivered to your shipping address within 3 days as promised by the website.
How the idea of 21fools was born?
Both the co founders were interested in hitchhiking experiences and travelled Rajasthan for 6 days. People were helping them to reach their next destination, giving them food to eat and letting them stay in their houses. They say, ‘We discovered so much about India and its people in those 6 days. And we observed that every individual was filled with so many stories. And every story made us smile, gave us inspiration and taught us things about life that no book or classroom could teach us. During that trip we realized that the world is filled with so much positivity and good people, but even then we are not happy. Why??? Because good people, good stories and good work are not told anymore.’ And that’s where the idea of 21fools was born.
Why Joy Cards?
