"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Used Greeting Cards to St. Jude's

I don't know about you, but over the years we've collected a TON of holiday greetings from friends and family. We love getting them, but what to do with them after the season passes? Some find their way into albums. Others become part of craft items. Now we've found somewhere we can send them to help a cause outside our own sphere.

The project:
Gather the unused, unwanted greeting cards from various stashes throughout the house and garage, and send them to St. Jude's Ranch for Children Card Recycling Program. (Check the site for deadlines as they change each year.) St. Jude's has run this program for more than three decades, serving both their donors and the children served by the program.

St. Jude's Ranch provides residential therapy for abused children, among other service. Check their site for more details.

30 minutes by the time I searched high and low and got it all packaged up

Why bother?
Our house is really full of stuff we don't actually need. We've saved the memorable cards, but we had plenty to share.

Worth it?
