Exeter, 13th May 2021
Joanna Lumley OBE, Sir Quentin Blake, Claudia Winkleman, Jane Asher, and more, have come together to create a range of illustrated artwork that can be sent as e-cards in support of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.
The idea is for people to send a thank you to those that have supported them through the most challenging of years.
With the designs hosted on charity e-card platform DontSendMeACard.com, those sending the exclusive artwork can donate what they would have spent on cards and stamps.
The donations go towards supporting seriously ill children across the UK.
Louise Griew, Chief Executive of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity says: "We wanted to give the public a way to say thank you to the people who have been invaluable this year, whilst also raising donations to help provide more Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses and continue our vital support work.”
Alex Furness, Director of DontSendMeACard.com says: “Our team are thrilled that our platform is hosting this calibre of content, and to provide the system for people to then send the celebrity illustrations as e-cards".
The opportunity to share positivity around in this manner may well be welcomed by many at this time.
