7 Best Charity Christmas Cards 2020 | The Sun UK

While we may have become almost completely dependent on technology, there's one time of year when letter writing is still a common pastime: Christmas.

The best charity Christmas cards aren't only a chance to show your loved ones you're thinking of them – proceeds from the cards go to help organisations you support, too.

From Macmillan and Cancer Research UK to the RSPCA and Mind, you'll find gorgeous charity Christmas cards online to support a charity close to your heart.

Typically, part of the proceeds from your purchase of the cards – and in some cases, all of the profits – are donated when you buy a pack of charity Christmas cards. Sometimes a percentage is spread across a few different charities.

You'll find a range of designs available, from religious scenes to animals and nature, as well as 'Merry Christmas' slogans.

Art lovers can also support their favourite museums – hard hit during the pandemic – with charity Christmas cards benefitting their favourite institutions.

These have the added benefit of including gorgeous works of art on the card, which the recipient will proudly enjoy displaying.
