Recycling Holiday Cards (and others)

My friend Sally Anne has been going ’round telling everyone about this great thing that St. Jude’s does that helps in several different ways.  You can send them your “used” holiday (and other occasion) cards and they will “recycle” them by taking off the backs, adding new ones, and “reselling” them to earn money.  Everybody wins!  The cards get reused, St. Jude’s kids get some money and less paper is wasted overall.

If you’re like me, you probably still have holiday cards lying around the house.  If you’re not like me, you got rid of them on January 1st.  Actually, if you’re like me, you probably have 3 years worth of cards lying around the house.  So, pretend you’re not like me and bundle them up and mail them to :

St. Jude’s Ranch for Children
Recycled Card Program

100 St. Jude’s St.
Boulder City, NV 89005

They will take used holiday, birthday – any occasion cards from now through February 28, 2010.

I’ve been so busy lately, I barely have time to write! I actually have several posts half done – hopefully I will get something out soon – because we leave for Florida on Saturday! Woot!

  1. This is awesome! Thanks for posting this, I have a huge stack of cards that I’ve been meaning to recycle, but felt a little guilty about it. Now I can recycle them for a great cause 😉

  2. Thanks Chelle for reminding me. I started to dismantle my office bulletin board and write a post about it but forgot the address. This will be my post for tomorrow.

  3. […] I read Chelle’s post about sending them to St. Jude’s and I was inspired this morning.  It reminded me of Sally […]

  4. That’s great.. I always just put it in my recycle bin.. but I like this idea.

  5. I already recycled mine this year in the regular old bin, but I’m totally bookmarking this for next year! What a great idea.
