What Do You Do with the Cards I Send?
It depends quite a bit on what type of cards you send in. For gift cards, we try to give directly to an organization that can directly use them. For collector cards (like sports cards and the like) we take any that have value and sell them to buy new cards so that they can be donated to children at hospitals (hospitals no longer accept cards that aren’t new and packaged). The other cards we give to teachers and other youth organization leaders where they can be given as prizes to kids at school and in after school programs. For greeting cards, we give them to art programs so they can be used for art projects. Every card we receive we attempt to give it new life while benefiting organizations that can use them.
Why Should I Send You Cards?
If you have any type of cards that are simply taking up space and you don’t want to add to the landfill, we are a perfect solution. Instead of going into the landfills, the cards go to help worthy organizations which is a win-win for all.

At this time we do not reimburse postage costs. If you have a large collection of cards you want to donate, it may be possible for us to pick them up depending on where in the US you’re located. Please contact us to see if this is a possibility.
Are There Other Ways to Help Besides Sending Cards?
Yes. Help us spread the word through friends and on social media so that these cards end up helping others rather than in the landfill. All social media mentions are greatly appreciated and letting any friends know that may have an interest in helping with this project as well.
Are My Donations Tax Deductible?
Yes. Donate Cards is a federally registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which means you can deduct the fair market value of your donation on your IRS taxes.
