We are selling hand made christmas cards. Made as part of art and activity workshops by the children of Sri Jinananda Orphanage in Wellewatta, Sri Lanka. 100% of the proceeds will go to benefit the orphanage. Project supported by Volunteer International.

This project is in its 3rd 4th year running and previously we have sold the cards in US, NZ, Australia, UK and Sri Lanka.

What happens to the cash raised?

Money raised in the previous years has been used for clothes, bed sheets, light bulbs, insect repellent, water purifiers supplies for more fun and educational workshops (face painting, mask making etc) and activity days out (to the zoo and theme parks), many meals, emergency food fund, and much more...


£2 per card
12 cards for £20
50 cards for £75
100 cards for £120

Prices include postage and packing. Every card is unique. Designs vary. Have a look at the photo gallery below for some examples.We have setup a paypal account to take orders.

You can also pay by cheque. Write it out to 'CHRIS ALLEN- CKRIR ACCOUNT ' and send it via giro or BACS to 'Bank of Scotland, sort code 12-20-29, account number 00906367.

Please join our facebook group to support our project - even if you don't happen to buy any cards! And invite and tell your friends too - but most particularly, please ask your company secretaries to think about ethically sourcing their corporate xmas cards this year and point them in our direction.
