GIFTS THAT GIVE BACK ~ Charity Holiday Cards

U.S. consumers purchase approximately 7 billion greeting cards each year, generating some $7.5 Billion in retail sales. The good news is we can purchase greeting cards that give back. You can find beautiful Holiday cards from many of your favourite organizations like UNICEF and the American Cancer Society at local retailers and online. 100% of your card purchase’s net proceeds will help worthy causes.



Make your holiday cards go even further: After the holiday’s you can recycle your cards by sending them to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, a home for abused children in Nevada, where they make new cards from old ones and sell them to support the ranch. Go to stjudesranch.org for instructions.
