Send a virtual card
Some of our Ambassadors have made some recommendations on sending E-cards instead of sending physical cards whilst in isolation. You can send funny joke cards, thinking of you messages and personal birthday or celebration cards from JibJab. Also, Jacquie Lawson has birthday cards, a gift shop and animated ecards for all occasions.
While you are here, is there somewhere you could recommend to disabled people? Leave a review for somewhere you enjoyed visiting to let other people know about it and how accessible it was. We might not be getting out and about at the moment, but it won’t be forever. Your review can help someone find somewhere new to visit when it is safe to do so.
