Make your thought really count
Send A Charity Greeting
"Thousands of people throughout the UK receive greeting cards every single day. Instead of sending a traditional greeting card, please send a Charity Greeting that will let your friends family or colleagues know you are thinking about them, while supporting a worthy cause," urges the National Animal Welfare Trust and Catherine Burton, Fundraising Assistant.
The National Animal Welfare Trust have joined forces with CharityGreetings.com as one of their new fundraising initiatives for the year ahead. Providing an innovative alternative to traditional greeting cards, CharityGreetings.com allows ethically minded consumers to donate to a charity, at the same time as sending a special message.
Ethical gift giving is growing in popularity. "Oxfam Unwrapped has bought over 700,000 gifts for people living in 46 countries. Consumers enjoy the feel-good factor of the dual purpose giving, a concept that is ideally suited to gifts and greetings. If you're going to buy a greeting card anyway, why not send a Charity Greeting instead and make your thought really count," says Catherine.
"Not only does CharityGreetings.com provide a much needed income source to charities, it is also an environmentally friendly way to send wishes and can be dispatched instantly - no more last minute card purchasing or worrying about catching the last postal collection," says CharityGreetings.com co-founder Craig Hartzel.
"By connecting four million individuals with Charity Greetings we aim to raise £4 million for charities by 2012, which is equivalent to a mere 0.053% of the entire UK greeting card industry at its current rate," says Hartzel.
To send a Charity Greeting and support the National Animal Welfare Trust simply log on to www.charitygreetings.com/nawt. It costs just £1.99 to send a Charity Greeting and £1 of this amount is donated to the National Animal Welfare Trust. The remaining amount covers VAT, credit card fees and maintaining the website. With various categories listed on the site ranging from birthdays to weddings, anniversaries, new home, new baby and even retirement, users can support the National Animal Welfare Trust on more than one occasion throughout the year.
