Christmas Cards for The Sick Children's Trust

Hello, thank you for stopping by! My name is Bethanie Thorn, I am 24 years old and I have been hand making Christmas cards since August to sell with all proceeds going to The Sick Children's Trust. The Sick Children's Trust are a wonderful charity who provide comfortable rooms and a supportive environment to families with sick children in hospital, these rooms are free of charge and just a few minutes walk from their child's bedside. When I was 14 I became very ill and spent 10 weeks in a hospital that was not close to home, I had to undergo a number of tests and treatments and had quite the journey to become well enough to go home. I was eventually diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and between then and now quite a number of secondary conditions. While I will never be 'cured' I can go on and it is very important to me that I give back to the charity that gave my mum a place to stay that was close to me when I needed her. I want to make sure that other parents get the same opportunity to be close to their child at such a difficult time. It costs approximately £30 to shelter and support one family for one night at The Sick Children's Trust, which is why I have set a target of £210, the approximate amount to support one family for one week.  I have held a few events in the past and managed to raise a few thousand pounds so far but would like to raise a lot more.  I would be so very grateful if you could give what you can spare to purchase a few cards to send to your loved ones and support family's going through one of the toughest times they may ever have to face. 

I ask that you please donate a minimum of £2.50 per A6 size card and £3 per 5x5, 6x6 and 5x7 inch cards purchased and add £3 to the total if you require them to be mailed to you. I will take what is required from this £3 delivery charge to reimburse myself for the postal cost but any excess amount from that fee will go to The Sick Children's Trust.  In order to choose which cards you would like to purchase you  will need to email me with your choice of design  and the number of cards you'd like. You will also need to email me your postal address if you require them to be posted. 

*Please note that I have a limited number of each design available and also cannot guarantee that you will receive an exact variation of a design (i.e the exact one(s) from the images). While I have put a lot of time into making these cards look as special and as professional as possible, I am not a professional. I won't be making any profit, all proceeds (minus postal costs) will go to the charity,  so  while I apologize for any I ask that you please be kind and forgive any small defects that you may find. Most importantly, thank you so much for your support and I hope that you and whomever you choose to send them to enjoy them!
