Stars including Ronan Keating, Sir Michael Parkinson and Nick Grimshaw have designed their own Christmas cards to raise money for charity.

Twelve celebrities have shown they are in the festive spirit by designing or supporting their very own MyDonate Christmas e-cards for charities including Cancer Research UK, NSPCC, Movember Foundation, and Help for Heroes.

Throughout December people can choose one of the 15 charity e-cards from bt.com/christmascards.

After making a minimum donation of £2 via BT MyDonate, the not-for-profit, online fundraising platform, people will receive an email with a link to download their e-card.

The e-card can then be shared with family and friends via email or social media.

The designs include a comedy drumming Santa, festive Christmas trees, a beautiful animal snow scene and even a rugby-playing Christmas robin.

Boyband The Vamps have pdonned their best Christmas jumpers to pose for an exclusive photograph for the front of their Christmas card to support the NSPCC.

They said: “Having a wonderful childhood is so important but unfortunately not everyone gets this.

“We’ve been lucky enough to help the NSPCC raise more money this Christmas through the BT MyDonate Christmas card campaign.”

John Petter, chief executive of BT Consumer said: “We are so pleased that celebrities have given up their time and pulled out all the creative stops to get people donating to some really worthy causes this Christmas.

“These e-cards mean that people know they have given some money to those who need it most this Christmas.

We hope people will have fun choosing their favourite celebrity MyDonate Christmas card design and sharing it with friends and family.”

The trend of donating to charity instead of sending Christmas cards is growing in popularity, and ensures customers’ money goes to a good cause.
