New Numbers – New Cards!

The new total number of cards donated is 4,578,935 thanks to a private donation over the weekend. A private donation is when we donate to specific people or agencies that request to keep their name private- we rarely do them but but there have been a few times that it’s fit; 3 in 3 years.

On top of that great new number; we got some great cards through the mail as well!

Lois Syrek from Belvidere, New Jersey sent yet another awesome donation of non-sports cards!

Big Update

It’s been a crazy week!

First – we donated 115,000 cards to the great people at Home of the Innocents! We were going to take cards to St. Joseph Children’s Home as well, however, due to weather issues we had to cut the trip short. We will be getting back to Louisville in the next few weeks though to deliver those cards.

Second – we have gotten a hug amount of cards this week- we personally picked up two huge donations (about 175,000 cards!) and we’ll post about those later this week once we get them sort and figure out what all is there.

Finally, on top of the donations we picked up, we have steadily gotten boxes of cards just about every single day. We’ve been doing this over 3 years, donated over 4.3 million cards and it only seems to be getting bigger and bigger…no slowing down in site!
