While putting out the holiday decorations this year, I set out the wicker "sleigh" we have where I like to gather the Christmas cards we receive each year. Yesterday I noticed there are only 4 cards in it this year so far. People just don't send cards like they used to. I can recall years where I mailed out over 60 Christmas cards and received about that many back as well. I personally enjoy crafting and making the cards so its a tradition to do that in our home now. I think there is a wonderful blessing when someone walks to their mailbox and finds a personal card and/or letter in there to surprise them, instead of just junk mail and bills. But I also know that in this day and age of technology, a tight economy, and a "paperless" environmental concious, that e-cards have their place as well. And even in email now, its a blessing to receive a personalized note in an e-card rather than having your email account filled up with junk mail and e-statement notices.
So today's Good Deed challenge to you: SEND AN E-CARD. Here is a great site that has some and benefits charitable organizations as well to get you started: http://www.therainforestsite.com/clickToGive/trs/ecardcategories
