For many of us, sending a card to our loved one during the festive period is a Christmas tradition (opens in new tab), and Cards for Good Causes can help you make that gesture extra special by donating to charity at the same time.

We all want to make sure our Christmas cards hold a heartfelt message, and for some of us that might mean sending homemade Christmas cards (opens in new tab) or penning a meaningful note full of festive love. But for those who aren't as creative, or don't have such a way with words, sending a charity Christmas card can be a great way to show the same sentiment.

And luckily, Cards for Good Causes (opens in new tab) is here to help. Every year they open shops around the country selling a wide range of Christmas cards and gifts, all of which raise money for local and national charities - and this year there's over 100 shops nationwide. Keep reading to find out more about Cards for Good Causes, the charities they support and how you can buy their Christmas cards...
