Hallmark has launched a beautiful selection of bears and gifts for Mother’s Day 2008, as part of its ‘Cards for a Cure™’ Campaign that will see Hallmark contribute £1/4 million to Breast Cancer Campaign and Action Breast Cancer, a programme of the Irish Cancer Society.

Fascinating new research from Hallmark Cards has proved that we Brits really do live by our international reputation of keeping a “stiff upper lip” and being reserved, with almost two thirds (63%) of people openly admitting they don’t think families in Britain show their affection enough.

With mums across the country craving some love this Mother’s Day, these gifts, priced from only £5.99, are the perfect solution and help to support the ‘Cards for a Cure™’ campaign…
