Why Send Care2 e-Cards?

The Care2 eCards has been established in 1998. Its CEO and President, Randy Panter, said in his Web site that his first intention was to “help make the world a better place” to live. His father is an ornithologist and during one of his trips with him in Amazon, he realized how imbalanced the world is in relations to fortune and poverty.

When the Internet was commercially available in 1998, the business concept was born. He partnered with two other businessmen, Matt McGlynn who also became the technology officer, and Camilla Eriksson who now serves as the president of the e-Cards. Then in Sep 1998, the Care2 ecards has been launched from Paynter’s small apartment.

Care2 offers effective tools to change your life, the community from where you live in, and the world in a larger scale. The company employs individuals who share the same passion in making a difference. It is a certified B Corporation, which means e-Cards joins more than 225 other companies endeavoring success.

B Corporations are a type of a company that utilizes business to help resolve environmental and social dilemmas. Like other B Corporations, e-Cards addresses two issues in systemic business.

1)    The lack of transparency that makes it hard to distinguish a “good company” and “good marketing.”

2)    The presence of shareholder primacy that acts as a blockade for corporations to take the interests of employees, the community, and the environment into considerations in making decisions.

Care2 eCards believe the values advocated by B Corporations are significant in equipping the company the right tools to better broadcast its commitment to such values and perhaps, set an exemplary for others to become more responsible in dealing with the social and environmental issues.

Care2 distinguishes itself from other companies by delivering its promises, rather than being good at lip service. The company ensures that its values and mission are its core foundation and will continue to drive future development. Also, it influences other business sectors that were once beyond its enterprise.

Care2 eCards provide free animated and musical cards for all occasions and events. It helps save the environment by not felling off trees from rainforests and not using any other materials or resources such as water to create cards that are sold in shops and bookstores. Hence, more trees and water resources are saved. People who support a similar advocacy come to its Web site to send or personalize cards for their friends, families, relatives, co-workers and people who influenced their lives.

To date, there are over seven million members of Care2 eCards with more than 25,000 cards available for occasions such as birthdays, graduations, anniversary, bereavement, holidays & other celebrations, Grandparent’s day, Labor Day, ad Patriot Day. There are also e-Cards for thanksgiving or greetings on Mardi Gras, child delivery, groundhog day, and valentine’s day.
