A Campaigner Is Calling For People To Swap ‘Cutest Cards’ For NHS Donations This Valentine's Day

We are being urged to use the hashtag #lovethenhs on Social Media

A charity campaign is calling for people to forego cards and flowers for Valentine’s Day, and to instead raise money for the NHS.

Valentines For The NHS was set up by brand marketer Claire Ruddock and condemns the February 14 tradition as an “avalanche of advertiser propaganda nonsense”.

The campaign is asking people not to shell out on “cutesy cards” or “a vomit of naff red and pink hearts”, but instead donate money that can continue to help support NHS workers – who Ms Ruddock argues emulate the true meaning of love in “sacrificing themselves for the sake of others”.
