Well, each year I like to highlight Christmas Cards you can buy where a portion goes to charity. Here are the top ones I found for 2012:
The National Wildlife Service is always one of the more popular charities I highlight here, as you can support Wildlife & Nature Through Your Christmas Card Purchase.
This year’s collection of cards is as phenomenal as ever, with a great selection of wildlife photography, beautiful scenery, inspirational prints, and photo cards.
What’s more, they’re also offering the ever popular “Gift-a-Tree” cards where a tree is planted for every card sold.
The Sierra Club also has a variety of Christmas cards with stunning nature photography of beautiful winter scenes and wildlife.
Check out stunning and eye-catching cards such as Nature’s Details showing a close-up of beautiful frost-covered leaves, Brown Bear with Cold Feet which is a hilarious shot of a giant bear keeping his feet warm, Sierra Club Atlantic Puffin showing a Puffin flying though the air in all his black, white, and orange glory, or Grand Canyon Holiday Cards, which shows a stunning view of the Grand Canyon.
These are absolutely amazing, but hurry because they tend to sell out very quickly.
ASPCA Christmas Cards feature adorable cards picturing 5 unique photos of actual dogs and cats that were rescued by the ASPCA, long with their stories. 40% of the purchase price goes directly towards supporting the ASPCA.
And of course no holiday would be complete without UNICEF Christmas cards. Every UNICEF card supports UNICEF’s efforts to save children’s lives around the world. They are beautifully illustrated and many cards have special features, such as displaying their message of holiday cheer in multiple languages.
There are also cancer charity Christmas Cards from The American Cancer Society that again are beautifully illustrated and help support the fight against all kinds of cancer.
Finally, some of my favorite cards each year are in support of the St. Judge Children’s Research Hospital. Cards like the one you see to the left were drawn by actual patients under St. Jude Hospital’s care.
There are of course other great charities selling Christmas cards, but these are some of the the best of the best. But hurry, as quantities are limited.
