Letter of Support

Samaritans is delighted to be working with The Greetings Card Company this year. We are so grateful for donations made through Christmas and general card sales, as Samaritans receives very little government funding and relies on voluntary contributions for 96% of our funding. This is a wonderful way to help us answer the 5 million calls for help we receive each year from people in distress and despair, and to help us offer emotional support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Thank you so much.
