When you’re reading this post you might be a little late to send traditional Christmas cards to your friends and family, but don’t fear. BT MyDonate have it covered for you. Just before Christmas, they’ve teamed up with some of the UK’s most popular celebrities and asked them to create their very own Christmas e-cards and support a charity close to their heart and help people in need.
To send an e-card to your loved ones and support those who are in need, simply pop to the official BT Christmas card page, pick one of the 15 designs from Nick Grimshaw, Dawn O’Porter and others and make a minimum donation of £2 (or more) before sending your season’s greetings to friends, family and everyone else on your Christmas card list.
The great thing about the campaign is that it is using the non-profit, online fundraising platform, MyDonate, for donations which means that literally every single pence that you donate (minus a tiny crdit or debit card charge) will go to one of the many charities supported. Benefiters of this year’s Christmas e-card campaign are Cancer Research UK, the NSPCC, Help for Heroes and many more.
If you are running late with your Christmas mail or you want to go paperless while doing something for those less fortunate at the same time, this year’s BT My Donate Christmas e-card campaign is definitely something you should get behind. Plus, there are some really cute designs available – I think Sir Michael Parkinson’s card is my favourite. He’s such a talented artist and I don’t think I could ever produce anything so intricate and beautiful with just a black pen.
Do you send out Christmas cards? Do you go for traditional cards or do you send virtual season’s greetings to your loved ones?
