For us it is also about doing what we do in the right way. We’re one of the few card publishers who use fully accredited FSC® sources for our paper. We recognise our huge responsibility to care for the environment and how we can do something about it in the choices we make.
We also care about our local communities, giving every employee at least one day of paid leave to take part in volunteering activities each year. We’ve helped hundreds of projects from ‘Write to Read’ to creating gardens for Forget Me Not Children Hospice. We have also supported the Princes’ Trust ‘Million Makers’ Challenge, whereby a Hallmark team creates a product or event, writes a business plan and pitches to get £1,500 to create their idea. They then have just 6 months to turn their idea into £10,000 – eek! Last year our fabulous adult colouring book idea raised over £14,000 for the trust and won the regional finals.
