I know most people have already bought or made their Christmas or Holiday cards - some have even sent them out already. I don't know what they're trying to prove. If you're one of the, shall we say, less fanatic celebrants, then you might want to consider one of the cards I've designed in your last-minute scramblings. I've made two: This one, with red text in the background and another with multicolored text. You can find them both at my Zazzle shop.
I had wanted to use the proceeds from the cards to support groups helping those affected by war: Refugees - from Syria and elsewhere - and those (people who live in areas infested with land mines for instance) who live with the aftermath of war every day. I still do support these causes, and I will be donating to some of them this year. However after some thought I decided that the best way I can think of to protect people from the effects of war is to take on the causes of war at their roots - and that means taking on the widespread beliefs that legitimize war and of the nation state, as well as the misinformation that is continually used to get people to support specific wars.
I can think of no other organization that does such a phenomenal job on both of these fronts. Antiwar.com is the only group I know of that both maintains a consistent stance against war, and that provides a constant stream of information to counter the misinformation found in the mainstream - I am certain that it is the only non-partisan group to do so.
So I have decided to donate all of my earnings from these cards (about .50 apiece) to Antiwar.com. If you agree with me about how fantastic this group is, and you still haven't bought your Christmas/Holiday cards, then please consider buying some.
