Let us take the stress out of Christmas with our animated e-card

Instead of sending out written cards to your friends or family, by making a donation and sharing our animated e-card, you can spread the festive cheer and help us to provide a Christmas to remember for local families.

Share a Card is an easy way to share your Christmas messages with your friends, family and colleagues, whilst making a huge difference to the lives of babies, children and young adults with incurable conditions in the North East.

Looking to share a corporate card?

This year, we are also offering an animated bespoke corporate e-card, where we will add your logo and a personalised message, which you can purchase online for a minimum donation of £100. The e-card is a quick and simple way to send Christmas cheer to your colleagues, customers and suppliers by emailing it to them or sharing on social media, whilst also being environmentally friendly.

With your help last year, Share a Card raised over £12,000 to support our vital work in the region

By taking part, you can make our children’s Christmas even more magical in 2018.

Your donations will ensure we can buy ingredients to bake Christmas cookies, supply twinkling lights and colourful tinsel to decorate the Hospice and provide art materials so the children can make cards for their families.

How your animated e-card will look

Our 2018 Share a Card has been beautifully designed by Isobel, Keira and Sophie who use our Children and Young Adults service for short breaks and respite. They used their finger and thumb prints to create this festive design of friendly gingerbread people against a snowy backdrop, complete with candy canes and snowflakes.

You can also add your name and a message to the e-card for a personalised touch.

“St Oswald’s is a lifeline for us”

Isobel, who uses our Children and Young Adults service for short breaks and respite, helped design this year’s card. Isobel’s Mum, Debbie said:

“The support the whole family gets from St Oswald’s is invaluable. Isobel enjoys every second of being there and for us as a family, it gives us a much needed break. St Oswald’s is a lifeline for us and keeps us going.”
