Don’t Throw Away Greeting Cards

Holiday Cards

If you were inundated by season’s greetings, don’t toss them. As you purge your home of all things holiday, set aside any old greeting cards to send to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, an organization that provides resources and care for children and families affected by abuse.

As part of the program, the kids are taught about entrepreneurship by repurposing and reselling used greeting cards.

    I purged my cards (Christmas, birthday, thank you, etc.) in late 2013 and sent them to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children. I did save a few for package toppers. The card can be trimmed and glued to a wrapped package in lieu of ribbons and bows.

    I re purpose greeting card by cutting the very nice one and use as book markers. As I use the new book markers, it causes me to think of the nice people that sent it to me.

    A dear friend told me she put them in a basket on the kitchen table and each morning she would pick the one in front and pray for that family and then place in in back so they all got prayed for.
