Design Team Member Kate here with a different kind of post than my usual project tutorials.

So you like to make cards...you are making so many cards that you have more than you can send to friends and family...how about putting your mini masterpieces to good use? I've compiled a list of where to donate handmade cards for you!

There are so many charities looking for handmade cards to brighten someone's day. Some ask you to write a simple message, others require them to be blank on the inside. Some ask for envelopes, others prefer none. Please check with the respective websites for their requests.

Where to donate handmade cards for charity

I have donated thousands of cards to charity over the last 5 years. Even if I don't think my card is my best work, I know someone else will enjoy it. It also justifies all my spending on craft supplies! Don't want the expense of mailing these cards? See if your local senior center/nursing home would like some cards to give out to residents or for residents to use to send to their family.

There you have it! Now you have EVEN more of a reason to create handmade cards since you know where to donate cards you make.

    For the past three years I’ve made 50-75 Christmas cards each year as well as numerous birthday cards for the VA. So many of our veterans are forgotten.

    Another FB group for donating cards is Cards for Soldiers.

  • Vicki

    I have donated over 100 cards since Sept 2022 to “Cards for Kindness” (scrapbook.com). I got addicted to making cards and this helped me feel like I’m doing something positive.
