Send an e-card this Christmas
There are many reasons to replace paper greetings cards with e-cards:
- it takes less energy for people with ME and carers
- it side-steps some disruptions i.e. train and Royal Mail strikes
- it reduces our carbon footprint
- it can be cheaper – a 2nd class stamp is how much? 68p!
Don’t send me a card!
WAMES is now on the #DontSendMeACard platform, and we invite you to send as many e-cards as you want via email or WhatsApp for a donation that you can afford. We have a growing selection of images (some animated) for you to choose from. How it works
Personalise your card
You can create one eCard to share to everyone or personalise each one, it’s up to you. You can upload a photo to accompany your personal message inside each eCard. You can also opt to show how much you donated to WAMES, in lieu of your card (and maybe even a gift).
Take your time
With each donation, you are assigned a volume of up to 100 eCards to use. You can come back later to send more. You can view your shares in your account and track your carbon savings.
Have you designed a card of your own?
Why not send it to us and we can upload it for you and others to use.
Send us square images 1200×1200 pixels in jpg or animated gifs. Max file size is 1mb.
There’s still a place…
Of course, not everybody can be online, and paper cards are the right choice for some situations. A number of people with ME make beautifully crafted cards, often as a fundraising tool, so it is worth hunting them out and being prepared for anything! Let us know what you find…
