This is only half the cards we recieved at our wedding (and about half in this photo are hiding!).
I wouldn't dare throw them away! I could've just stuck them in the recycle bin, but I decided to donate them instead to St. Jude's Ranch. St. Jude's ranch has a recycling card program in which kids at the ranch and volunteers re-attach the fronts of cards to the backs of new cards. They then sell the cards and the money goes to St. Jude's Ranch.
In case you are unfamiliar with St. Jude's Ranch, it is a non-profit organization that helps children who've been abused, abandoned and/or neglected. They house children and help them to start a new life.
So, instead of throwing away your cards, here's an awesome opportunity to help hurting children by simply recycling! Right now, they have a great need for thank you and birthday cards, BUT they take any type of card-yes, holiday cards too!
No cards to recycle? You can purchase the re-newed cards for $10 a pack!
