Every year at Christmas we have a few extra Christmas cards, or I’ve found a deal on cards that aren’t personalized. This year we’re going to try sending them to other folks who may enjoy the cards.
Local Red Cross organizations gather Christmas Cards to send to the troops. Check with your Red Cross to see if they’re participating and how you can help.
Check with your local senior center and see if they will let you pass out Christmas cards. Sign the extra Christmas cards and deliver them yourself, or ask the center if they’ll distribute them.
Women’s or homeless shelters are another place great to donate. Sign the cards with your name or even a prayer.
St Jude’s uses old cards sent in and children make “Thank You” cards from the recycled ones and they are sold. The money goes to the children who made the cars for their work.

Local schools can use old cards for craft or cutting projects. You can tear off the part with signatures or writing and send the front cover greeting.
