Holiday cards – a lovely way to engage others
I received an email from The American Cancer Society today. They encouraged me to order their holiday cards to send to family and friends. You can see the The American Cancer Society: Home page where you order cards. In return for your order, they ask for your donation.
I’m committed to UNICEF cards myself because of my international connections and my interest in development in Africa. In fact, last Christmas I didn’t even send cards. Somehow it all got away from me. I will do better this year. We’re going to Nigeria for the holidays, but I’ll send cards and a letter to friends before we go. I will!
Sending holiday cards with a message that’s meaningful to you helps your friends think about their own charitable interests, I think. So if cancer has affected you or your loved ones, think about using their holiday cards. If you want to support children in developing countries, go with UNICEF.
Do you think our grandchildren will ever send holiday cards?
