A card…

I wrote this post because the topic has really just stuck with me and I am not really sure how I feel about it.

In Australia it was Fathers Day on September the 3rd and I did the usual Father/Daughter lunch thing. I actually had to work on the Sunday, so we went to lunch out on the Saturday instead. However, as most of us do I had trouble looking for a card, until I found what I thought was the “perfect card”.

I didn’t even look on the back, how many of us do that?

I didn’t even realise that on the back of the card it had a prostate cancer cause on the back. The type that means that a part of the sale of the card goes toward the Prostate Cancer foundation…It just made me feel uncomfortable and mainly because my Uncle, my Fathers twin, actually had this. I think it’s a good idea especially since a lot of the other cards are all about breast cancer, I think it is good too see another cancer being supported. I just felt this one was too close too home.

Have you ever bought a card and then just not wanted to give it?
