Where to Donate
Here I will link organizations where you can donate your handmade cards. I will separate US based organizations and international organizations. I have had very little luck finding places that are not US based but I am constantly looking. Please contact me (email@example.com) if you want to share an organization.
Before you send any cards to an organization please check and follow their guidelines. If you have any questions about what is allowed by an organization please contact them directly.
Please note: I am not affiliated with any of these organizations and do not have direct experience with all of this. I am simply trying to share requested resources. I hope you find these resources helpful and please leave me a comment if you have other organizations you’d like to share.
