Have you head of Just a Card Campaign ? Well, up to recently, I hadn’t to be honest. It wasn’t until I saw something recently on Twitter, that I stopped and took note.
So in a nut shell, the Just a Card campaign was founded by Sarah Hamilton and is run by a group of volunteers and in their words ‘The JUST A CARD campaign aims to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even ‘just a card’ are so vital to the prosperity and survival of small businesses.’ Need I say more ?!
