Charity Christmas cards and charity Christmas catalogues are one of the best ways to make Christmas really special, and there are now a large number of different charity Christmas card designs and catalogues, as well as recycled charity cards to choose from. Here are some of the best we have found.

1. For charity Christmas card catalogues, the web site Catalink has a wide selection of free christmas card catalogues that you can order online, to support charities such as Macmillan Cancer Relief and Guide Dogs for the Blind. See the links to the Chistmas card catalogues on the right of this page.

2. If you have old Christmas cards lying around and have ever wondered what to do with them, Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth may have an answer. The organisations have created special labels which enable Christmas cards to be reused. All you have to do is stick them over your old cards. They are available in packs of 50 from Natural Collection.com

3. If you would rather buy new Christmas cards, then recycling is still an option. There are now a wide range of Christmas cards made out of recycled cardboard. The Natural Collection have dozens of different designs, each made out of 100% recycled materials. You can see the range of recycled Christmas cards here.

4. For an unusual Christmas card alternative try an innovative and creative card solution from charity World Vision. These looking charity Christmas cards raise money for charity, but are also a break with the same boring designs. The charity cards though are not the run-of-the-mill cards you would expect. They enable the sender to give a goat, an apple tree, some chickens, a flock sheep of even a bog to someone in the developing world on the recipient's behalf. The Christmas card informs them what has been sent. Find out more at the World Vision Alternative Gift Catalogue here.
