I thoroughly approve of Christmas cards for charities, particularly for charities in our own countries (see previous blog about the importance of not giving aid to Africa), but I have always done my own or – when the children were little – got them to do it.
I see this one (which is in fact a full picture but I could only get the top half to fit) I did in 1990, when my children would have been aged 10, 8 and 2. On the back I had printed that it was drawn by me and coloured by the children. It is high time I sorted out a card for this year but I’m afraid I cheat now and do it by e-mail.
