Here is an easy and fun project you and your kids can do together after Christmas. St. Judes Children’s Ranch collects the fronts of Christmas cards so that the teens in their program can turn them into new cards to sell. This is part of their “effort to provide the teens with life and work skills.” (St. Jude’s Children’s Ranch website)
Step 1. Have your children collect all of the non-photo cards you have received for Christmas.
Step 2. Have them sort out the cards that can not be sent (Hallmark, American Greetings and Disney can not be used by St. Jude’s Children’s Ranch).
Step 3. If age appropriate, have the kids cut the fronts off of the cards.
Step 4. Put all of the card fronts into a mailing envelop and send it to: St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, 100 St. Jude’s St., Boulder City, NV 89005
This is an easy service project that helps to recycle your holiday cards while helping the teens at St. Jude’s Children’s Ranch.
