Since CFK is no longer using FedEx, please throw away any FedEx labels you may have. Further, due to escalating costs of the pre-paid shipping labels, CFK has also revised shipping guidelines. Free labels will still be provided; and the following guidelines now apply:
1. 15/15 Rule = Send 15 cell phones OR 15 laser cartridges OR a combination of the two in one box, PLUS any other items on our pricelist. Click here for our current price list.
2. 30/30 Shipping Bonus = Receive a $5 bonus for sending 30 cell phones OR 30 laser cartridges OR a combination of the two in one box, PLUS any other items on our pricelist.
3. Going forward, UPS Labels will be emailed to participants, unless otherwise requested.

CFK appreciates your efforts and understanding as the guidelines change to help reduce shipping costs. This change will further our partnership with you to maintain focus on sustainability while providing a better solution to reduce the impact to our Earth. We hope you too will be able to use this change to your advantage and help tell your story of how this new program really does lower our carbon footprint.

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.

Cartridges for Kids is wishing you and your family a very safe and Merry Christmas!
We hope this year has brought you much joy and delight and we hope it continues through out the season and into the upcoming year!
Bet you didn’t know….
“Jingle Bells” was first written for Thanksgiving and then became one of the most popular Christmas songs.
Electric lights for trees were first used in 1895.
Clearing up a common misconception, in Greek, X means Christ. That is where the word “X-Mas” comes from.
” Rudolph” was actually created by Montgomery Ward in the late 1930′s for a holiday promotion. The rest is history.

Or better yet, try this recipe for some Homemade Holiday Cocoa….
1 box Nestle Quik
1 jar of powdered Coffeemate
1 box of dry milk
2 cups of powdered sugar
Mix all ingredients together….will make a nice sized batch for you and family to enjoy for days! Just spoon into cups of hot water and enjoy! Don’t be afraid to keep heaping it in by the spoonfuls, in my opinion the more chocolate the better!
However you may choose to spend this wonderful time of year, the staff here at CFK wishes you and your family the warmest holiday season!
December is officially here and the hustle and bustle of the season has begun. The air is more brisk and here in beautiful Colorado the snow is covering the ground.
CFK understands how hectic life can be now, so we challenge you to reward yourself… take a moment from your exhausting schedule to relax and enjoy the many different things this season brings. Should you stop and take a second glance you just may find a little peace in this very busy time of year!
