Do you have any used greeting cards?  You can recycle them by sending them to St Judes!  Please read this article.  It seems like a really awesome program.  And who still doesn't have Christmas cards lying around?

Here's the link

http://www.stjudesranch.org/help_card.php

We are accepting used, all-occasion cards from:
November 15, 2009 - February 28, 2010

You can mail your donations to:

Recycled Card Program History

Over thirty years ago, wishing to show our donors appreciation for making St. Jude's Ranch for Children possible, the idea was conceived for turning the previous year's Christmas cards into "new" cards for the coming season. The recipients were so delighted with their unique "thank you," they requested the children sell them the special cards. And so, the St. Jude's Ranch Recycled Card Program was born.

Since then, the Program expanded to include all occasion greeting cards...just about anything that starts with a used greeting card front. People from all over the world have sent us their used card fronts!

The children participate in making the new cards by removing the front and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new card made by the children and volunteers. The benefits are two-fold: customers receive "green" holiday cards for use and the children receive payment for their work and learn the benefits and importance of "going green".

The ongoing support for the Recycled Card Program has been overwhelming! The Program grew and soon we were receiving over one million cards. We have since redesigned the process to more efficiently manage the increased production from the increased volume and we welcome your submissions!

NOTE: We currently have an increased need for both Birthday and Thank You card submissions.

Yep, the kids make them into new cards.  So, you are also recycling and donating to charity.  I love it.  I just finished going through my card box.  If it didn't say more than Happy Birthday or Merry Christmas, they went in the pile to send out.
