GIVING TO CHARITY IS ON THE CARDS THIS CHRISTMAS
Buying charity Christmas cards is one of the easiest ways to give to charity during the festive season. Cards for Good Causes has one of the largest selections of Christmas cards available, supporting over 250 national and regional charities. What is more, at least 70p in every £1 taken from the sale of cards goes direct to the charity, a much higher proportion than most retailers. In the past ten years, Cards for Good Causes has given over £40 million to the charities it partners.
With the new Cards for Good Causes online shop now up and running, trends are emerging for this year’s Christmas cards. Animals and the natural world are common themes, with highland cows proving a favourite this year, along with hares, penguins and the perennially popular robin. London scenes are also frequently found. For those that prefer something traditional, there are a variety of religious designs.
Jeremy Lune, Chief Executive of Cards for Good Causes says:
“The simple act of sending a Christmas card is not only a way to show your friends and family that you are thinking of them at this special time of year, it is also an easy way to support a worthwhile cause. The large number of charities we partner means that everyone can choose a cause that they care about. The proceeds from every card or product sold make a vital difference to the work of the charities that we partner.”
The list of charities includes the 25 members of The 1959 Group of Charities, which include Cancer Research UK, Barnardo’s, NSPCC, Alzheimer’s Society, British Heart Foundation and RNLI, as well as local guest and local charities that vary from shop to shop.
