Dear Benevolus Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support over the past few years, which is much appreciated. Despite our best efforts however, Benevolus has not proved to be as financially viable as we had hoped. It is with regret therefore that this Christmas will be our last and the decision has been made to cease trading from 4 January 2010.

Final commission payments will be made to charities and artists during January 2010.

This information was made available on our home page and in email newsletters in the two months leading up to Christmas. We encouraged our customers to use up all of their points by Christmas and those that were not used were divided amongst our charities.

Should any charities be interested in developing their own bespoke ecard website, Please follow the link for more information.
