I received my Christmas cards today from the National Autistic Society so I'm all ready now....and I think I've chosen some nice cute designs for my family and friends this year. The snowman ones are actually for Mum from the Brew so she's sorted too.
I always have a word with myself and wonder whether I am going to do that 'oh I'm not sending cards the year but giving a donation to charity' thing that people do but sorry that's rubbish. It's nice to give and to receive a card around Christmas, it allows people to know you are thinking of them and in this digital age when all people do is text and email it's just nice to still receive something written.
This way you can do both so there's no excuse, you can send a card and give to charity. It doesn't have to be this charity although I would love you to order the NAS cards, you can choose your favourite charity and give something as well as putting a smile on the face of someone you know.
You can order a great selection of cards from the National Autistic Society website here www.autism.org.uk/shop/nas-merchandise/christmas-cards.aspx
There really are some fantastic designs even 'Frosty' designed by Toby, aged 8, winner of the annual Christmas card design competition in the children's category and 'Santa's Reindeer' designed by Jemma, winner in the adult’s category.
They arrive quite quick too as I only ordered these on Tuesday and they arrived today but get your order in as I'm sure the closer to Christmas we get, the busier they may get at the NAS, and lets be honest it's not long now.....
So get ordering!!
Thank you so much for reading today, I will be back tomorrow for Pass the Remote so join me then but for now.........
Every Saturday I will be talking about Autism and will review any useful information which may have been highlighted at any support groups in the week.
