Louis Kennedy supports FareShare this festive season with Christmas ecard send out

With Christmas 2020 rapidly approaching, sending a greeting to colleagues and friends feels even more essential than ever before. Louis Kennedy wanted to mark this festive season by do something extra special which would have the widest possible impact; on recipients, the communities we live in and the planet. 

Which is why, this week, inboxes across the country will receive a very special delivery via DontSendMeACard.com with a heartfelt message from Louis Kennedy. Instead of sending a paper card and a box of chocolates, Louis Kennedy has made a donation to FareShare, the charity distributing food that would otherwise go to waste, and sent Christmas ecards, which contributes to reducing its carbon emissions.

Grant Morgan, CEO said: “We are delighted with this excellent alternative to traditional greetings and from initial feedback it seems our business partners appreciate our decision too.”

Helena Mansell-Stopher, CEO Products of Change, commented: “It was a lovely surprise to receive an ecard from the Louis Kennedy team for Christmas this year, 2020 more than any other year has really highlighted the need to review the amount we buy, receiving the digital card was a nice reminder that though we like to send physical cards, there are different ways to spread Christmas cheer and give to charity at the same time.”

DontSendMeACard.com is a unique alternative to traditional greetings cards. Over 1,000 charities across a broad range of causes and of every size have joined the site. Individuals, companies and organisations can choose which charity to support when sending an ecard for any occasion and the donation made in lieu of a traditional card, goes straight to the charity, with no fees at all.

Charities have enthusiastically designed and uploaded a fabulous variety of cards, including in partnership with licensed characters and official photography, to reflect the cause they champion.

Alex Furness, creator of DontSendMeACard, concluded: “We’re seeing an incredible increase in usage of our system for 2020. When reputable companies like Louis Kennedy get behind the idea like this and give a very generous amount to FareShare, it makes it all possible.”
