Calling local shops and businesses! Spread the love this Valentine's Day by selling our romantic Valentine's Kiss cards.

This Valentines day we're giving local businesses and organisations to opportunity to spread the love and support Blind Veterans UK by selling our Valentine Kiss cards.

These fantastic little cards are the perfect way to say I love you and also give you the chance to raise funds to support vision impaired ex-Service men and women. Each pack contains a collection pot, poster and 50 kiss cards with a suggested sale price of £1.

If you sold 30 of the kiss cards that would pay for a talking watch, so that a blind veteran could tell the time more easily. If you sold all 50 of the cards the amount raised would buy a monocular telescope to help a veteran with long distance viewing.

If you really wanted to spread the love by ordering 100 kiss cards this would buy a specially designed keyword with big keys to enable a veteran with sight loss to take part in IT training, meaning they will gain the skills to use a computer, just like blind veteran Harry Beevers who said: "Blind Veterans UK taught me how to use a computer. I can keep in touch with my son in America by email, I can do my quizzes, I can write letters and I can go on the internet. It's changed my life in a way. It's great."

If you know of a local business, supermarket or office that would be interested in displaying our Valentine Kiss cards please get in touch with Angie Blake, by emailing angie.blake@blindveterans.org.uk. Please include your postal address and we will send a pack out to you.
