    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...

    That's a sad statistic considering many big corporate companies send charity cards.

    A lot of the cards should have some kind of mark or sticker on them that says 'x' % of this cost goes toward -insert charity- I've bought charity Christmas cards a number of times, also I have bought cards made by handicapped and the money goes to the handicapped centers..

    .. a little research and you'll find deserving ones but let that be a lesson not to buy the first one you grab.
    "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
