Some ideas on where you can donate old greeting cards:

  • St. Jude still accepts recycled card program, read exemptions via site stjudesranch.org/.../
  • Contact schools (daycare or art classes if they'd like them)
  • Local charities
  • You could repurpose cards into Christmas gift tags, create new cards, ornaments & etc.

Daycare centers love old greeting cards. They can use them for art projects for small childern. I do believe that Saint Jude's Children Ranch still accepts old greeting cards. You can also try to donate them to art and craft center.

They could use them for different types of craft projects or even for bottle art. Other than this cut them up and make some name tags with them for the holiday season.

Looks like Open Arms of Minnesota may still accept unused birthday cards:

612-872-1152

Cards are heavy and mailing to charities is nice, but what I have found is it is better to take a large or medium USPS mailing box (the one flat rate kind), and fill up a the box with them and then list the for sale on eBay.

I then use the proceeds either for donating the money to my favorite charity or for household expenses.

I am pasting a link of the sold auctions on eBay at the moment so you can get a feel for how to write the ad, photograph, price, and sell.

www.ebay.com/.../i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=large+lot+vintage...

There is a huge market for old cards (used or new) with artists and junk journal creators. If your home is smoke and odor free be sure to mention this in the ad as it is a huge plus for selling.

Post back with updates on what you decide!

PS if you have not sold before, I can walk you through the process!

I would find your local schools are churches. Salvation Army is also great. If you have lots of things to donate, they can pick up: 1-800-SA-TRUCK (1-800-728-7825)
