I was just looking at all of the cards that I received this year for Christmas. This is the largest collection of cards I have received in quite a few years. The kids even received a few cards of their own. I was just starting to gather up my cards for recycling when I received this idea from Summer.
For all those Christmas cards you’ll be recycling in the bin in a few days consider a different alternative. Turn your card fronts into St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. You simply take your Christmas cards and cut the card front from the back. Mail 5” x 7” or smaller card fronts, free of writing on the back, to St. Jude’s so they can recycle the cards as new for next year’s Christmas as a charity sold card. St. Jude’s can’t accept cards by Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting. To keep green all year long, keep St. Jude’s in mind as they take Birthday cards, Thank You cards, Easter cards, and All Occasion greeting cards.
You can mail your donations to:
