Default handmade card donation

Does anyone know of organizations who accept donated handmade greeting cards? I love to make cards but my collection is getting too big and I would love to get rid of my cards in a useful way. Thanks

Operation Write Home does, but they have some guidelines. I'm sure that a senior center or nursing home would be happy to have them to give to those who live there and/or to have on hand for residents to send to their loved ones.

Check out the "Cards for a Cause" thread on this site....there is a different place each month that you can send cards to!

From Our Hearts also accepts cards for the troops to send home. No glitter, no feathers, no heavy, thick embellishments.

I make cards for my local pregnancy center and I can't keep up with how many they need. They use Baby, Thank You, Praying for you, and Birthday cards. If you're interested, you can PM me for the address. They would love any extras you have.

Donate them to your local nursing homes. They love to have cards available for the residents to send to family and friends.

I've been asked to make some "Thinking of you" and encouragement cards for our local domestic violence center. So you can check with such organizations in your area.
