Send a Smile - Free Ecards with a Conscience

My mother often scolds me because I don’t send out cards the way I used to. I blame my laziness on the ease of the Internet. With one click I can send my “connected” friends and family an e-card to commemorate a birthday or anniversary. I save trees from destruction and paper from going to the landfill. I save money on stamps and the gas it would take to go to the store. My justifications are endless. So if you are like me and enjoy sending e-cards, I’ve located some sites that allow you to send FREE cards that will help spread the word about a worthy cause and create a warm smile on your recipient’s face. Have fun brightening someone’s day.

I was having a look at the e-cards websites and they are great! I love to send e-cards :) One of my favorite sites is the hallmark site where there are many nice e-cards. I also like american greetings.

Have a nice day!
