Cards for Good Causes, the UK’s largest charity Christmas card retailer, is opening its doors in over 150 towns across the UK over the next few weeks as Christmas card sales already see a significant rise this year. 

With the terrible year many people have had and many businesses being forced to close, there is at last some good news for the high street as Cards for Good Causes opens its doors for the festive season to support charity. According to the latest Google data, the Covid-19 crisis has brought about a rising demand for Christmas cards this year, with demand in 2020 already above 2019 (4.61k in August 2020 versus 3.65k in August 2019). It has become ever more popular to send a card and make a difference to someone at home. 

The not-for-profit organisation has a huge selection of charity Christmas cards and seasonal gifts with 100% of its proceeds donated to local and national charities - 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 and has aspirations to do even better this year with charities needing vital funds more than ever in the current COVID-19 Crisis.

It represents more than 250 charities including Cancer Research UK, Barnardo’s, Alzheimer’s Society and RNLI as well as a number of small local charities.

Shoppers will be able to choose from hundreds of different Christmas card designs, as well as traditional advent calendars and candles, wrapping paper, gift tags, napkins and stocking fillers. 

Jeremy Lune, CEO, for Cards for Good Causes says: “We love bringing the Christmas spirit to town and being a part of the local community! Buying charity Christmas cards is one of the simplest ways to support good causes this festive season and we stock one of the widest ranges of Christmas cards anywhere. The proceeds from every card or product sold make a vital contribution to the work of the charities that we support. 

Many of our charities have not been able to source an income from their usual events this year so buying a card or gift from us is a way of giving them that vital funding that many of them so desperately need this year. Our online charity Christmas card sales have increased significantly already and we are really seeing people wanting Christmas to lift everyone’s spirits. It’s great that we can be a part of that.”
