Send A Holiday Card, Help Educate A Child

Sample cards with a slogan "Every card counts, every card helps".

What could be a better way to celebrate Christmas and New Year than sending your friends, clients or colleagues one of the special cards made by disadvantage children of the Saigon Children’s Charity?

"The cards are bright, colorful and we can overprint with the buyers’ logo and personal greeting. Each card they send not only brings pleasure to their friends or clients but also brings a brighter future to needy kids in Viet Nam because all the card sale proceeds will be presented to hundreds of children each year," said Head of the project Ms. Bao Chinh.

Sold in sets of six, these striking and original cards were painted by children of Thang Long School, a vocational training school in District 4 run by the Saigon Children’s Charity to help train and prepare the most disadvantage children to escape proverty.

Founded in 1992 and registered as a non-governmental organization in England, the USA and Viet Nam, the Saigon Children’s Charity aims to help educate poor, disabled and vulnerable children by building schools, providing scholarships, running vocational training classes and arranging jobs for pupils.

Last year, the SCC's Christmas & Tet card project raised up to US$ 19,500, which enabled hundreds of poor children to go to school.
