Send a Charity Video eCard

Poets and writers, you are invited to take part in this productive distraction, we call The Christmas Verses Challenge.  The object of the challenge is to write a Christmas verse that will go on a Christmas Card.  The verses will be donated to the Hope Spring Water Charity eCard.  

Hope Spring uses its eCards website to raise money to fund clean water wells and boreholes’  projects in Africa.  We all know the typical greeting that comes on most Christmas cards. From the very banal “Merry Christmas” to  long-winded greetings that are not that exciting.

We challenge you to come up with new, fresh and exciting Christmas verses that could go on a new Hope Spring Christmas card.
