It’s that time of year, where you start thinking about taking down and throwing out your Christmas cards. Don’t throw them in the trash, though. Give them new life by donating Christmas cards to St Jude’s.
The children and volunteers at St Jude’s remove the back, then affix a new one. These cards are then bundled together in packs of ten and sold, and the money raised is used to support St Jude’s programs and services.
You can send all cards, including:
- General Christmas
- Religious Christmas
- Thank You
- Get Well
- All-Occasion Blank Greeting
You cannot, however, send any Disney, Hallmark, or American Greeting cards. Cards must be blank on the backside of the front before sending, so be sure to check them before you send them. Cards that are 5×7 or smaller is preferred.
Send your cards to:
St Jude’s Ranch for Children
100 St. Jude’s St
Boulder City, NV 89005
Cards are accepted year-round, but I usually bundle mine and send them at Christmas, since I have the most cards then. This year, I collected our new home cards, birthday cards, and Christmas cards. I’ll cut off the front and toss out the back, then put all the fronts in a large envelope to send via USPS. You can also send them in a flat rate box in case you have a bunch of cards to donate. Which I actually had the year I asked my mom to save her Christmas cards too.
