Ukraine Crisis

5 Simple Ways you can show support to Ukraine

‘Ukraine Sunflower’

We have all watched events unfold in Ukraine with horror & wondered what we can do to help.

Ukraine’s president Zelensky has described the United Kingdom as a ‘real & reliable’ friend with our nations support of his country during this crisis. So lets continue to do what we can as this crisis continues.

Few of us feel able to donate large sums of money to charities or physically provide any help, but there are some easy, cheep ways you can show support for the Ukrainian people at their time of need.

Here are 5 simple things you can do to show support to Ukraine.

  1. Display Sunflowers

Nothing is more symbolic of Ukraine than this vibrant yellow flower. Not only is the Sunflower the National Flower of this great nation but we are all appreciating now that Ukraine is one of the worlds largest supplier of sunflower seeds & oil & its supplies are now under extreme threat as the invasion rages on.

Display Sunflowers images to show your support to the people of Ukraine either in your window or outside of your schools, churches, community centres or work place.
You can also plant some sunflower seeds now in time for them to bloom to their full dizzy heights this summer.

Let’s cover our world in sunflowers!

2) Send Ukraine Appeal eCards

LOLVE eCards are proud to say that we were one of the first companies in the world to react to the humanitarian crisis & set up its dedicated Ukraine Appeal ecards online uk within days of the crisis comencing in early March 2022.

Whether for birthdays, anniversaries, Easter or for any special occasion, send a LOLVE eCard with 100% profit donated to the Save The Children Ukraine Appeal

From Sunflowers to Nightingale birds & messages of Hope, Love & Peace, LOLVE animated cards are the perfect way to send messages by email or social media.

3) Buy a Mug

4) Buy a Teddy Bear

This has to be the cutest way you can show support to Ukraine!

Buy this gorgeous, traditionally made brown teddy, resplendent in his T-shirt with the Ukrainian flag emblazoned on it. Made with super soft fur this toy is perfect for cuddling in to as well as showing solidarity with the Ukraine nation.

5) Save The Children Ukraine Appeal

If you have been deeply affected by watching the scenes of families fleeing or trapped by the war, in particular seeing children distressed & injured, then there is a way you can reach these children directly..

The Save The Children charity directly reaches the Ukraine children whether they are still in the country or sheltering in neighbouring countries as refugees, & helps supply them with food, medicines, physical & psychological support & assisting them to access education.

Even if you are only able to donate a few pounds to the Ukraine Appeal, you can be assured that every penny reaches the children in need.

Which ever way you choose to show support, just try and do SOMETHING whether by moral, practical or financial ways to help with this humanitarian crisis we are all witnessing in front of our very eyes.

Thank you

We’re officially award winning!

And we couldn’t be happier about it!

When you’re a small business starting up, there are many challenges you face along the way.

So winning a small business #SBS award and from no other than Theo Paphitis from Dragons Den- well, that certainly feels like a pat on the back!

Dragons Dens’ Theo Paphitis presenting Lizzy Dunstan, Director of LOLVE, with his Small Business #SBS award

So what’s the story behind LOLVE eCards?

Well LOLVE is the idea and business baby of its director, Lizzy Dunstan.

In 2016, frustrated at the lack of choice for sending tasteful, elegant but fun & personalised eCards, she came up with a solution in the form of LOLVE eCards.

She also created the word LOLVE- short for Lots of Love, as this seemed the perfect word for gift giving.

After working with web developers in Edinburgh, LOLVE finally launched mid pandemic in June 2020 with a further site upgrade in June 2021 with Edinburgh web developers Geared App.

Lizzy has spent 5 years working with a variety of the most talented artists within the UK to select card designs that she loved & knew that customers would love too.

A little about Lizzy

Well she’s always a busy Lizzy & sometimes a dizzy Lizzy!

As a wife, a mother of 3 and with a career of over 35 years as a nurse, fair trader & a previous part time greeting card trader, LOLVE encompasses many of her core passions.

So whats so unique about LOLVE?

LOLVE was designed to make life easier for busy people. From sending greeting cards & gifts to family & friends on time & on budget can be challenging in our busy lives.

Lizzy wanted an eCard that delivered on style and felt like a virtual gift, that you had to open like a gift-box to reveal its personalised contents.

Charity ethos
It was important to her that LOLVE had a big heart and so it’s charity range was created. She collaborated with a local Scottish charity, Tayside Children with Cancer & Leukaemia (TCCL) for a stand alone eCard range with 100% profit from this range donated to this incredible charity. All artwork for this range has been kindly donated by local Scottish professional artists or created by children associated directly or indirectly with the charity.

Eco friendly product
We’re eco friendly as well! Not only are we a paperless product saving trees, but we also plant a tree for every subscriber to our cards with The Tree App.

Handmade gifts
We features many gifts on our site too – all tasteful & most hand made to help you find the perfect present for that special occasion!

We pride ourselves on being the most personalised, whilst being the most stunning, eCard on the market!

Thank you!
Thank you so much to all of our wonderful customers & supporters for making LOLVE live & breath- without you we simply wouldn’t be.

5 ways to share the love this Valentine’s Day

‘Love is in the air, Everywhere you look around’

Yes, its difficult to ignore that February is the month of romance with Valentines Day on the horizon on 14th February.

Whilst this is an exhilarating & romantic time for many, for some it can be a painful reminder that they are single, widowed or alone.

With cards, flowers & heart shaped gifts in abundance from chocolates, cakes, balloons & more, Valentines Day is certainly a time for professing your love.

So whilst there is no shortage of ways to show our love to our husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, fiancee, significant other or secret crush, is there anything we can do to share the love a little to others that need it?

We all know someone who is alone, not necessarily by choice, whether it’s your Mum, Dad, an aunt, cousin or best friend- or maybe even you. And we know that Valentine’s Day can be a tough one when the rest of the world appears to be in love or partnered up.

So here are some 5 tips to bring a little joy & love to others this Valentine’s Day.

  1. Send some flowers

Nothing says I love you like flowers do. And it doesn’t need to be a dozen red roses (although that would be lovely, thanks very much!) – so why not send a thoughtful bouquet to bring joy to a loved one and Buy flower such as this stunning hand tied array of tulips.

2) Send a card

Receiving a personalised card can be the single most thoughtful gift anyone can send & receive. The simple act of taking a few minutes to write a message & let someone know you are thinking of them, cannot fail but to bring joy to someone.
Whether by paper card or by personalised eCard, send someone you love a heartfelt message this Valentines Day.

Why not send a stunning bespoke eCard with Lots of Love at LOLVE and brighten someones day! With the addition of your personalised message, music & special effects and with the option to add photos to your animated card, we guarantee your message will be received with a smile!

3) Phone a loved one

With so many ways to communicate these day from text messaging, WhatsApp, Facebook or Messenger, its easy to not actually call or Facetime and talk to loved ones. Whether it’s due to convenience, being busy or laziness at having to make conversation, days can slip into weeks & months of not picking up a phone to call.

However, to someone living alone or struggling with not being in a relationship, to actually talk to someone can help them feel connected & loved & help with any loneliness.

So whilst you’re sitting there, probably with your mobile in your hand- why not just do it & MAKE THE CALL !

4) Visit someone

Yes, we’ve all be in a lock down of sorts on & off over the last 2 years with the COVID pandemic, but we are allowed to travel & visit again now.
Some of us are still naturally anxious about becoming infected or spreading the virus to loved ones, but as long as we are responsible in following current national & local guidance, preferably fully vaccinated & maintain social distancing where possible, why not get out & about a bit and start catching up with family & friends and help others feel connected

5) Send a small gift

Theres no need for giant, expensive gesture but sometimes a small tokenism gift can mean the world to someone.

Have you ever found that when you’ve used a gifted item, such as a fruit bowl, socks or a candle, that you think warmly of the person that gave it to you when you use it?

Why not gift someone with small present, sent with love, to help them feel loved & smile.

A scented candle can be a perfect way to send a small but thoughtful gift, such as an Eco-conscious natural wax vegan candle, with a refreshing Seamint & Spruce with Eucalyptus & Peppermint aroma.

Whichever way you reach out to family, friends & loved ones this Valentines Day, we wish you a wonderful day full of love & happiness!

Lots of Love from LOLVE eCards
