Yinzer Greeting Cards Are Helping Animals N'at

No joke, well maybe some joking, but it's all for a good cause and some good local laughs.

If you're from around the Pittsburgh, PA region of Western Pennsylvania you might be a "yinzer" or at least know what one is. In the South they say "y'all" in the Philly/New Jersey area you may hear "Yous". It's all regional dialect, and around Pittsburgh the similar phrase is "yinz", as in "Yinz gonna eat that?" or "Yinz need directions".

There are plenty of greeting cards that have adapted regional themes, but until now none have truly captured the ambiance quite like the Yinzer Cards . They were first dreamed up by Dick Roberts who told me all about the origins and his team of crafty collaborators.

Dick tells me the cards are more than just fun reads, they're also doing good. A portion of the proceeds from every card goes to the Pittsburgh area animal advocate and rescue group Animal Friends . You can check out their mission at

For more on Yinzer Cards you can visit their website and even order online or in-store at Giant Eagle and Market District stores across the Pittsburgh area.
