An old man walked up a shore littered with thousands of starfish, beached and dying after a storm. A young man was picking them up and flinging them back into the ocean. "Why do you bother?" the old man scofted. "You're not saving enough to make a difference." The young man picked up another starfish and sent it spinning back to the water. "Made a difference to that one," he said.

Need something to do with greeting cards?

I love getting cards in the mail, but I always feel bad about throwing them away. Someone spent good money for that card, but I don’t want to build clutter in my home by keeping the cards. Yes, I must admit I keep all the Thank-you notes I receive and some special cards from my husband and sometimes friends and family but for the most part they go in the garbage. 
Several years ago I discovered the Greeting Card recycling program through the St. Jude Ranch for Children.  I have blogged about this before, see my prior post, but I wanted to remind everyone they except not only Christmas cards, but all greeting cards.  Today as I was FINALLY mailing St. Jude Ranch for Children my Christmas cards, I learned they have an increased need for birthday and thank you cards.

If you want something to do with your used greeting cards, put them in a package and mail them to:

St. Jude Ranch for Children
Attention: Recycled Card Program
100 St. St Jude Street
Boulder City, NV 89005
