UPDATED FAQ -
I DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT CARDS, WHAT IF I DONATE SOMETHING WORTH A LOT!
We aren’t trying to rip anyone off; we are simply trying to get the cards that people don’t want in the hands of kids who DO want them.
If we run across a card with a book value of $25 or more, we will try to contact the person who donated; however we can’t be responsible for cards we miss. The amount of cards that we receive has greatly increased, which means the amount of time we have to sort the cards has dropped. We still have to quickly look through all of the cards to be sure graphic or violent cards don’t get through. If we find a card, we will post on Facebook and Twitter that we need to speak with you; however, you will only have a few days to contact us due to our turn around only being a few days.
The other issue is that I’m not familiar with hockey, soccer, golf, gaming cards, Pokemon or things like that so I have no idea the value of those cards and can’t look each of them up.
The last issue is that the cards of today have started having tons of SPs, variations, sparkle, etc and I just don’t have to time to know everything there is to know so I’m sure some cards with higher value are getting missed.
We donated 100,000 cards in one day to three different agencies and got down to an inventory of 0…which lasted less than a day and we are already back up to about 8,000 cards!!! It never stops around here and that’s a great thing!
We donated cards to -
Homeless and Housing Coalition in Frankfort, KY Abilities, LLC in Frankfort, KY
Pay It Forward Frankfort in Frankfort, KY
All of the cards will be used at upcoming Christmas events!!
This brings our total to 5,446,573!!!

I know it’s been a month since our last update and I’m going to get back on track. My mom has had a lot of health issues- going as far as being admitted to CCU. She’s been in the hospital for about 28 days and has been moved to Lexington, KY. Due to this and me trying to get my health under control, C4K sort of took a backseat. We didn’t stop getting donations or trying to find donation spots but the social media part of it really feel off.
I have a donation planned with a great group in Frankfort, KY called “Pay It Foward Frankfort” that I should be dropping off this week.
Over the last month, we have gotten some awesome stuff….let’s jump right in!!
