Go nuts! Buy a Christmas Card and 20% of all sales go to a local charity.
Every year, at the Christmas Open Studios and Made in Camberwell Arts Market, some of the sales go to a different charity.
In 2014, it was a cause very close to my heart, raising money for Lucy's Light. I am very happy to say that thanks to your generosity, I raised £1000 for Lucy to get life changing treatment to help cure her Multiple Sclerosis. She had the operation in April 2015 and is currently back in Inverness and doing very, very well.
Her website is www.lucyslight.uk, and the plan is to use the extra money raised, and that is not used to support Lucy, in creating a charity to help others get the same treatment in Russia.
This year, I am coming a bit closer to home, geographically speaking. YESS is Camberwell based charity that aims to advance the education and improve the life-conditions of people under the age of 25 in South London. They currently do invaluable work helping children, some of whom for one reason or another are unable to attend school. They also provide everything from legal advice and support with government services to art classes and music sessions.
