Press Release Nov 2019 - Christmas Comes early to Charities on the Making a Difference Card Platform

Press Release – November 2019 - Making A Difference Cards

Charities to benefit from early Christmas gifts from Making a Difference Cards

With the recent release of their two newest features, Video and Audio messages and Website embedding, charities across the UK now have the opportunity to gain greater donations from the sales of Personalised Greeting Cards and 3D E-Cards – just in time for Christmas thanks to services provided by Making A Difference Cards. And these gifts are wrapped up beautifully in the fact that Making A Difference Cards makes no charge for these services- Yes they are FREE- and they take No Commission from donations made.

Donors can now create longer lasting memories for occasions all year round with the introduction of video and audio messages attached to both printed cards and ecards which  recipients can view online or downloads via a QR code/personalised URL printed in the card. Making personalised cards truly personal.

Dominique Saks of The Murray Parish says “It’s a genius idea”.

For their second free gift -Making A Difference Cards have this month released the facility to embed the card shop within an existing charity site with a single line of code in a similar way to Google Analytics. 

With minimal branding and their tried and tested card/ecard solution available directly – Making A Difference Cards are reducing the risk of losing visitors via a page bounce and increasing the opportunities open to charities for fundraising directly from their website without the burden of the development and running costs associated.

Katherine Jary of the Friends of Bedgebury Pinetum says: "The concept of online charity cards is simple and brilliant, a great additional fund-raising string to our bow. It is even simpler and more accessible now that it can be embedded into our own website."

So there is no reason for a charity, large or small, not to provide their donors a full greetings card experience from their very own website.
