Sometimes I buy Christmas cards. Sometimes I make my own. Sometimes I don't send any, then spend the holidays in spasms of guilt each time a card arrives to me (I imagine the sender quietly pining away, waiting for my reciprocal card which never arrives).
This year I think I'll send Christmas cards that benefit a charity. Many charities and institutes design Christmas cards as a fundraiser, and you can find a large list here.
There are a few of my favorites:
Angel Covers, benefiting a school for deaf children in Narobi.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art. How could you resist a triptych card?
Ten Thousand Villages supports third-world artisans - look at these beautifully crafted cards! This one is painted on papyrus.
MD Anderson features many cards, but I like this fun ornaments design by an aspiring graphic artist!
The question now is, which to pick?
