Jermain Defoe, a professional footballer who plays for Toronto and England, has set up a charitable foundation to help homeless, vulnerable and abused children in St. Lucia.

“St Lucia is close to my heart and I am in a position to be able to help these children whose lives are affected by poverty, homelessness and abuse. So many children in St Lucia live on the street or are passed between family and friends because their parents can’t care for them. They deserve a better start in life.” Jermain Defoe, Professional Footballer

By sending e-cards this Christmas, I have been able to donate a percentage of the cost for each card opened online to this worthy cause.
