Carbon savings

Sending greetings has never felt better

Feel great at no extra cost

By giving what you would have spent on cards and stamps anyway, you’re helping a charity that you care about without being out of pocket.

Going paperless

Switching to a friendlier way gives you the peace of mind that you’re no longer using materials and fuel to deliver your special messages.

Total convenience

Stressed about Christmas? Need to say thank you to a large group? Send all of your e-cards in one hit or tailor each message and send individually.

Snowball effect

Generate even more for incredible causes as your e-card recipients will see that you gave in lieu of cards and can do the same.
