December Green Tip

Recycled Card Program

Don’t despair over all those greeting cards accumulating in your desk.  St. Jude’s Ranch has a great Recycled Card Program.  Operated by Kid’s Corp., a program for the children at St. Jude’s Ranch to learn entrepreneurship skills, 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.”  You can purchase “new” cards as well as donate your old ones. The cards are sold in packets of 10 for $10. There are different addresses for donations and purchases, so go to the website for all the details:
