...why not help out St. Jude's instead in their Recycled Card Program? I recently found out about this, and it makes my heart flutter.
St. Jude's will take your old Christmas cards (the basic ones, not the ones with your family, friends, and neighbors posed picture on it!), and make new Christmas cards to sell!
As their website says:
Operated by Kids, Corp., a program for the children at St. Jude’s Ranch to learn entrepreneurship skills, the children participate in making the new cards by removing the front and attaching a new back. The result is a beautiful new card made by the children and volunteers. The benefits are two-fold: customers receive "green" holiday cards for use and the children receive payment for their work and learn the benefits and importance of "going green".
Ready to pitch in, right?
