Butterfly Tea Party 2013

In 2009, The Phoenix International Charity launched its Butterfly Tea Party fundraising initiative in the UK. Since then, Phoenix Traders and their customers have caused a fundraising phenomenon selling greeting cards and stationery whilst drinking tea, having fun and eating lashings of home-made cakes.

Thanks to your efforts over the years, The Phoenix International Charity, working with Phoenix Traders and their customers, has raised over £½ million for Together for Short Lives (formerly known as children’s hospices UK). Your help has raised much-needed funds for children with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions, and their families.

In 2013, we published a special, limited edition 3D card, Butterfly Cloud, featuring artwork by Louise Anglicas, with 50p from every card sold being donated to Together for Short Lives (formerly known as children’s hospices UK). Alongside this corporate commitment to the charity, our Phoenix Traders ran a whole host of Butterfly Tea Parties to support this fabulous cause.

Traders also donated a percentage of their sales by combining their Butterfly Tea Parties with activities like:

  • Leaving a basket of product with people at their homes or in their workplace to share with friends and colleagues
  • Online sales of cards
  • Hosting a fundraising event on Facebook
  • Circulating brochures and collecting orders from family and friends
  • Holding colour-in competitions (for both adults and children!)

To date, in 2013, Phoenix Trading and their Traders have raised over £40,000 through the Butterfly Tea Party 2013.

Fundraising is the perfect opportunity to do something worthwhile and make your mark. Phoenix Trading and our Traders are very proud of our long history with Together for Short Lives (formerly known as children’s hospices UK). and look forward to supporting this very worthwhile cause well into the future. If you’d like to get involved, please give your Phoenix Trader a call and they will be happy to help.
