Dear Customer,

All Greeting Cards on this website are CHARITY CARDS and support the work of for the future, and not just for Christmas.

One of the many evil effects of Covid 19 is the growing sense of hopelessness among many in our country.  Of particularly concern are the  multitude of young and young adults in our community.  The former have lost part of their education and many fear for their future.  Many of the latter have, with more joining daily, lost the ability to feed their families due to loss of work and a sustainable income as well a possible long search for new opportunities.

The tragic effect on their minds and subsequent mental health for many so affected will blight the whole of our society for many years to come.
