Recycle your Christmas Cards with St. Jude's Ranch

Happy New Year to all of you! I know many people like to keep their Christmas decorations up a little longer, but I like to get my house back to 'normal,' right after New Year's Day.

Every year, as I am putting away the decorations, I sort though my Christmas Cards. I like to keep theChristmas Card photo cards so at some time in the future I can go back through them (or, honestly, pitch them when we downsize and I won't have as much guilt about throwing away photos of dear friends).

I also sort all of the non-photo cards and remove the front. Once that is done, I put them in an envelope and send them to St. Jude's Ranch where they are used to create cards that they sell. These cards are sold  to support programs for abused, neglected and homeless children, young adults and families.

There are some rules about what they will accept, so go their page, Recycled Card Program, for more information.

You can mail your cards to:

The progam  is not limited to just Holiday cards, so remember this program as you go through your year!
