    Charity Christmas Cards

    I love sending charity Christmas cards but a BBC article said that some shops only give 6% of the cover price to the charity! Shame on them.

    I read the BBC article myself, i think there are some that give more though.......id expect at least 50% to go to Charity.

    Good news is that I've found a site which gives 75% of the card price to charity. Much better!
    They are at http://www.cardsforcharity.co.uk/
    Happy card shopping...

    It's sort of scary but anyone can call themselves a charity. Who really know where the money goes with some of these outfits.

    Anyone can CALL themselves a charity, however, there are a number of laws and rules defining a charity in most countries and often time before a Shop or Store signs on to selling this "charity's" product the conduct an inquiry into the Charity's reputability.

    The percentages that are actually donated, on the other hand, vary group to group.
    "I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
