Making it easy for charities to receive donations in lieu of greeting cards

New account version gives charities everything they need to invite supporters to send e-cards and donate the cost of cards and stamps.

DontSendMeACard are inviting charities to register on to their website and access their e-card and donation system through a new account dashboard.

The site offers e-card pages unique to each charity with the function for users to give the equivalent cost of cards and stamps to their selected cause.

Thousands of individuals are already donating through the streamlined and
secure e-card system.

Designed specifically for charities

The dashboard has been designed specifically for charities and makes it easy to get started. A number of popular e-card pages are pre-loaded to make it easy to get started. It's also possible to generate new pages.

A user-friendly dashboard provides everything needed to raise donations
in lieu of cards.

Custom e-card pages can be built such as this example by Tibet Relief Fund.

A new income stream

The site has seen individuals give as high as £200 in lieu of sending Christmas cards. Sending greeting cards can be an expensive business today, especially with the cost of postage.

By sending out email invitations and social media posts encouraging people to give, charities can receive a high number of donations.

The generosity of individuals in the run up to Christmas is amazing to see.
