One of my girls at work gave me a wonderful idea for recycling Holiday Cards instead of throwing them away. St. Jude's Children's Ranch takes old cards and uses them to make new ones to sell to raise money. Cards should be 5x7 or smaller. They use just the front piece of the card and request that what you send not have anything on the back of that piece. I'm assuming they mean writing rather than any part of the greeting or pictures stamped on the back.
They DO NOT accept cards from Hallmark, American Greetings and Disney. Any other cards are OK.
The awesome part is that they don't just do Holiday Cards, but also Birthday, Thank You etc.
Mail cards to:
