Designed by five NYC- and London-based graphic artists and illustrators, nonprofit Goods for Good's holiday ecards one-ups others with images that we like a little better than standard Hallmark fare. The project adds humor and gorgeously hand-rendered graphics to the usual eCard concept of eliminating environmental concerns about sending holiday greetings and offering procrastinators a chance at spreading last-minute joy.

Artists include Jayson Atienza, Ayca Koseogullari, Ava Morton, Alessandra Olanow and Julia Pott, who each donated their time and talent designing these cards, whose proceeds provide much needed supplies, clothing, health and hygiene products to vulnerable children in Africa. A simple $10 donation affords soap for 450 nursery school children, for example.

With nine original images to choose from, it's a chic and easy way to give holiday cheer and support to those in need. Head to Good for Goods to see all of their cards.
