Red Nose Day – comic relief

Not as in depth a post as I wanted to do – Comic relieffibro body/brain can’t manage that…so, the brief version it is 😉

Today is the 25th anniversary of the UK charity Comic Relief. In their own words,

“Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK which strives to create a just world free from poverty – and we work 365 days a year to help that vision become a reality…Comic Relief cash has been at work in over 70 countries around the world since it began in 1985.”

The telethon is tonight and there have been a lot of folks doing a lot of things to help raise money.

When I taught, comic relief was always a big deal and every school I worked at got involved, raised money, helped pupils to learn about charity and giving. 

Now…I can’t do much any more. So – I decided that the Red Heart designs I created a few months ago could be sold as digital downloads. The PDF (or png if you prefer) is the same resolution/quality that I use to get cards etc printed. These can be uploaded to Zazzle or any online printing service and be used to create an unlimited number of items. They look great as cards – I had mine printed by Moo. But they also work well as…

…all kinds of things from mugs to t-shirts.
For every download I sell – after I’ve deducted the Etsy and Paypal fees (which I think are around 6%) – I will donate all the profit to Comic Relief.
So far I’ve sold four downloads…can you help me raise a bit more lovely reader?
They’re £2.50 each – thats £2.35 to charity AND you get a way to print lots of handy cards at home or create oodles of unique gifts via Zazzle or wherever.
Please pop over to my Etsy store (theres not much there, I still haven’t managed to list many things yet, so it will be a quick visit!) Please buy one download…it will help me to feel like I’m contributing even though I can’t do much any more.
Or if you don’t want to do that – at least visit the comic relief site and donate there. We can make a difference…
