Creating personal cards can be a lot of fun. There are so many choices out there when it comes to creating your own cards. But if you’re looking for something that you can send online instead of a physical card, then look no further than smartecard (http://smartecard.org/). What are the benefits of sending e-cards, you may ask? Well, it’s environmentally-friendly. It’s faster and sometimes easier. And there are more choices when it comes to designing the right style for the right occassion. And with smartecard, they go a step further by donating a portion of your purchase to charities you can select.
smartecard was founded with the idea of creating a fun card-making environment for people as well as providing extra income for non-profit organizations. Their philosophy is to help those in need as well as enhancing the experience of making and sending personal cards online for environmental preservation. With smartecard, your entire family can be involved in the process of sending your holiday cards. From selecting the photos and music, to writing captions and choosing your charity and hitting send, each family member can have a sense of ownership in bringing your pictures to life with smartecard. And the best thing is that with each $1 donation you make, you earn 1 smartecard (equivalent to one email), with 70% going to your designated charity, 20% to smartecard for licensing and operating costs, and 10% to Urban Affairs Coalition (a 501c3 organization) for the management of the non-profit organizations’ proceeds. It’s a good way to show your children how you give back to the community and world, especially during the holiday season.
Mom Select and smartecard had kindly offered me credits in trying out their program through a review as well as selecting a charity. They are also offering 1 LUCKY reader of Happymomblogger the opportunity to try out the online cards design-and-send and a charity donation with 25 credits. It was a lot of fun in creating something unique online as well as the benefits of sending the e-cards to my family and friends right away, instead of having to buy stamps, address the envelopes, and mailing them out (and hoping they arrive on time). I think you’ll enjoy designing these unique cards online as well and also feel good about what you’re doing too. So how do you win this ultra fun and useful prize (especially for the holidays)?
