Press Release

Over thirty years ago, wishing to show our donors appreciation for making St. Jude’s Ranch for Children possible, the idea was conceived for turning the previous year’s Christmas Cards into “new” cards for the coming season. The recipients were so delighted with their unique “thank you,” they requested the children sell them the special cards. And so, the St. Jude’s Card Recycling Program was born.

Today we have expanded the program to include all occasion greeting cardsŠjust about anything that starts with a used greeting card front.

People from all over the world send us their used card fronts. The children precision cut the card fronts and glue them to pre-printed card stock. The children receive fifteen cents per each acceptable card made which is divided between their savings and college fund, their cottage fund for special group outings, and to provide the kids with extra pocket money.

The children can make special orders for any occasion. Our most popular requests are for angel and teddy bear cards. Custom orders with special printing, etc. are also available.

Please send your all occasion used greeting cards to:

Cards are available in packages of 10 cards/envelopes for a suggested donation of $10.95, (includes postage and handling fees). If you would like to order packages of recycled greeting cards, send your request and donation to:
