MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Popcards, the newest innovation in greeting cards since the digital photo has announced a partnership with Children's Cancer Research Fund (CCRF), a national nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating childhood cancer by funding leading-edge research in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of childhood cancers and blood-related disorders.

Popcards and CCRF, will be celebrating the partnership kick-off at CCRF's annual Gala, Dawn of the Dream, being held at The Depot in Minneapolis on November 7.

"Children's Cancer Research Fund is near and dear to my heart. As a stage 3 cancer survivor and a CCRF board member, I'm dedicated to helping children and families in their battle with cancer. Popcards is a fantastic new invention that helps people uniquely stay connected, and if it can help in the fight in any way, we are over the moon," says Stephanie Hansen, Popcards Owner.

With the Popcards App, you can create printed greeting cards that come to life with an augmented reality video experience. With the app the user can simultaneously take a photo and record a personal video. The photo is printed on the greeting card with a personal message. The greeting card can then be scanned using the same Popcards app bringing the card magically to life.

Popcards are the newest innovation in Greeting Cards that combine both a photo and video in an augmented reality experience. Imagine getting a birth announcement in the mail from your best friend.

There are lots of applications: a Holiday Greeting Card with a video of a family's personal message, a Save the Date Announcement with a video of the couple in love, a Graduation Announcement with a video of the graduate talking about college plans, or a simple Thank You card with a personal video from the bride and groom.
