Polacards sold at Wijn en Cava

Sara and Alvaro are running a very nice Spanish delicatessen shop in Maastricht called Wijn en Cava. They really liked so much the project and its goal to aid Unicef Bhutan that they became active supporters by selling our Polacards at their shop. Whenever your stocks of jamón or vino are low, you may add as well the Polacards and support a good cause.
