Care2 Send The Very Best?

Then you must visit Care2.com!
I stumbled upon Care2.com when I was researching freemail accounts a couple years ago. Back then it had a different name that I can't remember, but what caught my attention was their commitment to saving the environment and wildlife. I liked what they stood for, but sometimes life gets busy and you put things off, so I didn't sign up right away. Later on I ran into them again and that time I did sign up for an account.
You do not have to have an account to send egreetings through their site, but having an account does give you certain benefits. These include adding cards you like to your 'favorites list' for easy access, retaining a list of the last 20 cards you sent, and importing names from your Care2.com address book to simplify addressing your egreetings.
Care2.com has greetings for every imaginable holiday (most of them animated) and they can be customized in the following ways.
1. Add a standard or customized greeting
2. Add music or sounds
3. Add a background color or pattern
4. Select a 'postal stamp'
5. Write a note, which can include HTML code
After you have personalized your card you can preview it and make changes as many times as you like before you send it.
Other features include the ability to BCC all recipients, which means that you can send the same card to many people at once but each person sees only his own name as a recipient, to set a delivery date in the future, and to request that you be emailed when the card is send and when it is picked up.
This is, of course, all free to you, but each time you use their site you generate donations to support wildlife. If you become a member, you can even designate where donations generated from the ecards you send will go.
