Reasons to send Christmas cards

Cartoon for Traidcraft


This is the cartoon I did for Traidcraft as part of their Charity Christmas card Week campaign. In summary: people prefer actual written Christmas cards, and by buying charity ones you’re helping other people too. To quote the Archbishop of York, Dr. John Sentamu:

“I love social media, but I think something has been lost in our increasing reliance on it to connect with people” says Archbishop Sentamu.

“A ‘like’ on Facebook or a retweet will never satiate the most basic of human needs: to feel connected, loved and belonging to a tangible community.”

So, yes, I’m 100% in favour of written Christmas cards. Just… don’t get too cross with me if it turns out I’ve also been drawing e-cards for someone…
