So, it’s been about two weeks since we’ve updated and I’m sorry for that but it’s been crazy!
We finished up the 100,000 Halloween donation to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office and we threw in an extra 15,000 in unopened packs/sets for their Shop With A Cop and DARE programs. On top of all of that, we did a private 7,5000 donation to help out a couple kids yesterday as well.
These donations brings our total donated up to 3,455,263 cards as well as tons of Starting Lineup figures, magazines, comic books, Lego figures, pins and tons of other awesome stuff!
Almost 3.5 million trading cards in exactly 3 years….that total is crazy and all possible only through the #C4KFamily! You guys are amazing!
We met some great folks today that are doing some great things and it was great to be able to help the best we could.

While we at C4K understand that things like clothes and food are far more important than trading cards, trading cards is what we have to offer and since the holidays are just around the corner, we are sure kids would love to see a huge stack of cards under the tree!
We took 130,000 cards to Elizabethtown, Kentucky today and donated; we are sure they will get to hundreds (if not thousands) of kids throughout the next few months!
Today’s donation brings our total of cards donated to 3,332,763!!!
We made a couple of donations over the weekend -
100,000 cards went to the North/South Laurel Little League in London, KY. These cards will be going to about 150 kids playing in the Fall Ball league and then another 600 or so kids playing next season.
16,000 cards went to the Anderson Christian Church to help out with some Christmas events and just to have to give to kids when needed.
We these donations, our new number is up to 3,186,763!
On top of dropping cards off, we are still working on the epic #C4KHalloween and calling places to set up additional donations.
With all of that aside, we also got a ton of great stuff this week.
First up, we got 4 box of gaming cards back in early September from Brent Tuinstra of Pipestone, Minnesota.
