Why you didn’t get a Christmas card from us…

Expr3ss! Charity Giving Back

2017 has come and gone. And you may have noticed that we didn’t send you a Christmas card. No ‘happy holiday’ wishes, no ‘festive fun’. Nothing.   Instead, and in typical Expr3ss! style, we did something better: we Christmas Gifted on your behalf.

As you probably know by now, it’s an Expr3ss! tradition to put our money where our mouths are by supporting worthy causes every chance we get. So, we scrapped Christmas card sending altogether. While they are lovely to receive, they very quickly get forgotten and blend into everything else at Christmas time.

Instead, we like to give the equivalent of what we would spend on designing and buying the cards as an ongoing monthly donation to one of the many charities we support. By choosing Expr3ss! you are helping too.

In 2017, we gave back $250,890.60 to charities alone (this excludes our scholarship and sponsorship initiatives).

To check out what charities we support, simply look at the bottom of your online invoice. But just in case, we’ve listed them for you here too:
