How Greeting Cards Work
Each time you add a gift to your online shopping cart, you will have the option to select a FREE greeting card for your friend or family member.

There are three types of cards: eCards, mailed cards and print-your-own cards. (You can also select no card.) Below are details for each of the three types.

You can send one card each time you add a gift to your shopping cart, even if you select a quantity of more than one for that gift item. If you would like a card for each gift, add them to your cart individually by entering a quantity of ‘1’. This way you can enter the email or mailing address for one honouree at a time for each gift, and then repeat (click ‘Shop Some More’).

1. E-Cards - You will enter the email address for your gift honouree, who will instantly* be sent an eCard with your personal message once you complete your online order. You will also receive a copy of the eCard you sent to your own email address. (If you would like your gift honouree to receive your eCard at a later date, choose a Downloadable PDF card instead, which you can save and then email to your honouree on the date you choose. Alternatively, send the eCard to your own email address now, then forward when you're ready.)

You can choose from several eCard designs, including Joy, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Thank You, Happy Birthday, or other occasion. In addition to your personal message, eCards include the following message: “In your honour, a special donation has been made through Save the Children’s Gifts of Joy catalogue! May you experience true joy in this heartfelt gift that’s creating change in the lives of children worldwide.” Your eCard will include the name of the item you purchased for your honouree. You will be able to preview your card before finalizing.

*Please note, depending on your or your honouree's email provider, eCards may go to a Junk or Spam folder.

2. Mailed Cards are sent to the mailing address you provide for your gift honouree. If you would like to personally deliver the card to your honouree instead, enter your own mailing address and we’ll mail the cards to you. Orders must be received by December 7 to guarantee delivery of mailed cards by December 25.

You can choose from two message options for the front of mailed cards: Joy or Merry Christmas. The inside of the mailed card features the beautiful photo of the item you purchased with a description explaining why the honouree’s gift is so special. The inside also includes this message: “May you experience true joy in this heartfelt gift that’s creating change in the lives of children worldwide.”

3. Print-Your-Own Cards or ‘Downloadable PDF Cards’ allow you to create a card that you can download, save and print or email to your gift honouree. If you select this card type, a link to the PDF will be included in the email you receive after completing your purchase. (This email will also have your tax receipt.)
