It’s December! which means it’s officially Christmas (that’s what we think anyway) and what better way to spread some Christmas cheer, save the planet and do some good for an important cause than to send a charity e-card.
We’ve teamed up with the lovely people at DontSendMeACard.com to offer e-cards to anyone who would like to donate to the Lee Spark NF Foundation.
DontSendMeACard.com are on a mission to rethink greetings. The company was set up to offer a real alternative to the waste of greeting cards. Their vision was to enhance the occasion of celebration with giving. Unlike printed charity cards, where typically only 10 – 15% of the price goes to the charity, with DontSendMeACard.com the charity can receive over 100% of the cost of the card with the addition of Gift Aid. They believe that as well as increasing the value of the donation an e-card can increase the sentiment!
Why charity giving this Christmas
The Lee Sparks NF Foundation is a charity set up to support the survivors of and those affected by Necrotising Fasciitis as well as provide education and resources to medical professionals and the general public with the aim of reducing the impact of the condition.
We rely 100% on donations, fundraisers and merchandise sales to operate the charity and that’s why it’s so important that we continue to raise funds throughout the year.
