With the Christmas season now over, Cards for Good Causes has closed its pop-up shops around the UK. It was an incredibly difficult and challenging time for the not-for-profit organisation with 50% of key trading wiped out by a lockdown in England during November 2020. With such an impact on sales, the Charity card and gift retailer has launched a January Sale online to help raise further funds for charity including Cancer Research UK, RNLI, Alzheimer’s Society and many more. 

The sale includes both Charity Christmas cards and many beautiful gifts under £10 with a number of charities taking part in the sale. Charity Christmas card designs are from the 2020 collection so this is a last opportunity to buy some of the special designs from the year and support charity. 

As a not-for-profit organisation, 100% of proceeds are given back to local and national charities - after operating costs, that’s at least 70p in every £1 taken from the sale of cards which is a much higher proportion than most other retailers. In the past ten years, Cards for Good Causes has given over £40 million to the charities it partners with. It represents more than 250 charities including Macmillan, Barnardo’s, Save the Children and Mind as well as a number of small local charities. 

With the devastating effects of COVID-19 over the past year, the charity sector has suffered considerably and support is vital if these charities are to survive and continue their work this year.

Jeremy Lune, CEO at Cards for Good Causes says: “The proceeds from every card or product sold make a vital contribution to the work of the charities that we support. To be able to continue this into the New Year is so important so that funds continue to be raised which our charities so desperately need. It has been a very tough season but the local community has been so supportive and we hope that they continue to be in 2021 - we remain optimistic.”
