Neat Idea, nice to be able to also help someone.
Do NOT donate to a nursing home; go room to room and give to the actual people!

The nursing home will charge an outrageous price to the people that can use them!

very cool.

I could think of all kinds of ways to “table talk” while playing Eucher with this… want trump… put cards in front row, etc…

A friend uses one of these. Hers is cut on an angle, back to front. Yours is lots prettier.m

Anything you can do to help someone in need is a good karma deposit.
