I am sending this box of over 1,000 cards to Davids House. It is a home in Lebanon NH that houses families of sick children while they are in the hospital for virtually nothing. They survive by donations. I have been hoarding my cards like crazy, and decided for what?? To sit in my basement, for me? So, I need to get rid of them, and thought who better to get use from these cards then families who are at the hospital with sick children? The box is full of a wide assortment of holiday, thank you, b-day, get well, thinking of you and blank. I hope this will help them brighten their day, and not worry about buying a thank you or whatever when thye are busy with their kids in the hospital. Just thought I'd share a photo of my purge, and encourage you to stop hoarding your beautiful creations as well!!!

Wow! That is incredible! I can't believe you had more than 1,000 cards to give away! What a wonderful opportunity to share what you love with other people. I am sure these cards will make many people smile!

Awesome. I occasionally send a box of cards to my state Womens' Prison so the incarcerated women can send a card to their children or friends. They are much appreciated. I have never, however, sent 1000!!
