Quality Christmas cards which used to cost �4.99 in previous years, you can
now get for �0.99. But of course they cost �0.09 to produce anyway.

I always buy Charity cards so at least I know that the profits are going as
a donation to a good cause.

I don't like it when they send unsolicited a bunch of charity cards
in the expectation that you will feel sorry and buy the cards. Such
cards goes in the bin.

Are you stupid, most of the money goes in fat wage packets for people using
emotional blackmail to get people like you to part with their money. Take a
look at how much the charity named on the cards you buy has in the bank and
how much directors take as wages! You would never give to charity again.
Some directors of a hospice were taking �100k+ each per year and crying
poverty with �5million in the bank.
use the charity commission site to look at who you money goes to and how
little is ever donated.

same here, the companies registered as charities are conning the public.
look at how much directors are taking in wages and expenses from the
donations. charities are the biggest scam going.
