Get your cards marked

My mind has already been drawn toward Christmas (or is it Winterval, Pete?) and I like many others will soon be sending cards to those I care about and cards to others for reasons I’m not sure of.

Like many people I use the opportunity to support charities by purchasing cards from them or in an increasingly environmentally aware world sending e-cards.

This year I intend to support an additional initiative by Amnesty and add a few names of:

prisoners of conscience, people under sentence of death, human rights defenders under threat because of their work, and others at risk.

to my list

Details are available on the Amnesty, British section, website. I can’t see it on Amnesty Ireland but they are promoting a Carols for Freedom event in Dublin.
