How Much Do Charities Earn From Charity Christmas Cards?

The Telegraph has published an interesting table and commentary on the amount that charities earn from the charity Christmas cards that are sold in a variety of shops.

I’m not sure the overall results are that surprising, that even at the best rate, they only receive 21% of the purchase price, but a table published reveals that the real scrooges are Harrods, whose cards on average donate just 6% to charity.

The article gives some advice on how to donate the most through charity christmas cards. My advice would be to either buy the cards from the charity themselves, or save a tree or two, forget sending cards to everyone and donate the cash to the charity directly.
