Cards with a Cause

This year, I decided to do things a little different with our Christmas cards. Instead of spending money on the traditional boxed cards and printing off pictures to include, I decided to do something that had more meaning. I know most people end up trashing the cards after the holidays (maybe even the pictures too). And, that's okay. But, I wanted to send something that I knew wouldn't be a waste of money and would actually go towards a good cause.

I started searching for cards that donated portions of the proceeds to a charity or non-profit organization. I wanted to try to find an organization that was local (within TN) and one in which they majority of the proceeds would go straight to the cause. I had fun searching and finally found a place that I'm very familiar with and believe in the work they do. Even better, 100% of the proceeds go towards the cause! Be looking for your card to see what organization we chose.

So, when you receive your Christmas card from the Davis family this year, you won't have to feel guilty about tossing it after Christmas because it wasn't wasted money. I just love this idea and I think it's going to be a new tradition for us!

What a great idea, Melissa! I might borrow this idea for next year. Wish I would have thought about it sooner.

p.s. We had Tabitha's baby shower today at the same location as mine and I couldn't help but miss you being there. I hope you, Clint and Chloe are doing great. We miss you!
