Reduce, Reuse, Recycle—in 2016 the possibilities to do all three are made even easier—and more fulfilling, through organizations like St.Jude. Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s have now passed—what do you do with all those Wishing-You-Well cards?

Most people simply trash them. But you don’t have to.

Here’s how it works, straight from the St. Jude website: Operated by Kids’ Corp., a program designed to teach entrepreneurship skills, the children at the Ranch participate in making the new “green” cards by removing the front and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new card made by children and volunteers.

There is currently an increased need for both Birthday and Thank You card submissions. You may purchase cards in our online store or call (877) 977-SJRC (7572)

Cards are sold in packets of 10 for $17.00 including shipping and are available in the following categories: General Christmas Cards Religious Christmas Cards Easter Cards Birthday Cards Thank You Cards Sympathy Thanksgiving All-Occasion Blank Greeting Cards

To Donate Cards: Year-round, St. Jude’s happily accepts used all-occasion greeting cards. Please review the following tips before sending in your donation. 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.)
