Send an E-Card today and support single parent families this Christmas.

We know that Christmas and holidays can be a tough time of year for many single parent families.  Alongside financial pressures of buying presents, attending Christmas activities and finding affordable holiday childcare, the images of traditional families exchanging gifts and sharing holiday activities in advertising and popular culture can be impossible to escape.  This can add to feelings of loneliness and exclusion for many single parents and their families.

That’s why this year we have taken action

Families come in all shapes and sizes and this year we are celebrating the 1.8 million single parent families in the UK by making sure their images of Christmas are also a part of the picture.  We asked children of single parents from across the Gingerbread community to design Christmas E-cards and here are the results:

Share these special Christmas E-cards with your friends and family and support more single parents to thrive!
