A new 'hybrid' Christmas card for business could bring a welcome boost for the homeless.
An Post has married the idea of an online Christmas greeting with a traditional card - and 20% of the sales will go to the Peter McVerry Trust.
An Post's Sales and Marketing Director, Liam Sheehan said: "You go in to AdMailer.ie. There's a number of pre-designed cards up there.
"If you have your own design you want to use, you can use that. You download your data base and the whole process takes less than 15 minutes.
"The cards are printed and sent automatically for you, and each card is personalised and also has your signature on it."
