recycle your Christmas cards

Don't forget to send your Christmas cards to St. Jude's for their Recycled Card Program:

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 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".

While you are cleaning up and out after the holidays, don't throw away those cards, or even put them into the local recycling bin, send them to St. Jude's, and while you are at their website, order some cards for next year!
