We are past the mad Holiday rush and most of you have already put away your decorations.
Now, what to do with all those Holiday cards? This is not for all the adorable selfies or family photos you receive. This is for all the general holiday cards.
The St. Jude Ranch for Children recycles your used greeting cards and creates new holiday and all-occasion greeting cards. Recycled cards are sold to support their programs and services for abused, neglected and homeless children, young adults and families.
The program is a win-win; customers receive earth friendly cards and the children at St. Jude’s Ranch receive payment for their work and learn basic job skills and the importance of recycling.
You can donate all cards, year-round: Greetings, Birthday, Thank you and so on. According to their website they currently have an increased need for Birthday and Thank you Cards.
To Donate Cards:
- Only the card front can be used (please check to be sure the backside of the front of the card is clear of any writing, etc.)
- They cannot accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards (Don’t be deterred by this. I only had one or two cards that fell under these brands)
- 5″ x 7″ size or smaller is preferred
- Mail to: St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Recycled Card Program / 100 St. Jude’s Street / Boulder City, NV 89005

If you are in Dallas and are interested in recycling some cards I plan to mail in a package in the next couple weeks. Just message me.
