Tips on Tuesday: Easy Way to Help St. Jude's Ranch for Children

Here's a tip my sister sent to me.

Want an easy and free way to help support St. Jude's Ranch for Children?? They are again requesting the fronts of your Christmas cards (and any other card fronts from used cards). All you do is cut them off and mail to St. Jude's Ranch.

Here's the most important information:
St. Jude's Ranch is accepting used, all-occasion greeting cards from November 15, 2008 through February 28, 2009. You can mail your donations to:
St. Jude's Ranch for Children
Card Recycling Program
100 St. Jude's Street
Boulder City, NV 89005

What do they do with the fronts of cards??
Recycled Card Program History
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 recipients were so delighted with their unique "thank you," they requested the children sell them the special cards. And so, the St. Jude’s Ranch Recycled Card Program was born. Since then, the Program expanded to include all occasion greeting cards…just about anything that starts with a used greeting card front. People from all over the world have sent us their used card fronts!
The children participate in making the new recycled cards by removing the front and attaching a new back made with recycled paper. The new card is a beautiful, “green” 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".
The ongoing support for the Recycled Card Program has been overwhelming! The Program grew and soon we were receiving over one million cards. We temporarily suspended the Program while we redesigned the process to more efficiently manage the increased production from the increased volume.
