Card Game Favors at Family Dollar ~ Added to My Operation Christmas Child Stockpile

My daughters just came home from shopping for a Christmas tree...long story short, I am allergic to our live tree.  It now resides on the deck where we can see it thru the sliding door.  Anyways, they didn't find a tree, but they found these adorable playing cards in a party favor display with other items at Family Dollar on sale for 75 cents each--there are two in each pack.  They are perfect for our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
I remember a story of a child whose family began playing UNO each
night after supper because they received it in his shoe box.  It made
a big difference in the family members' lives.
Sarah shares our additions to our stockpile each Saturday.  You can see them all here:  Shoebox Stockpile Saturday ~ Adding to Our Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Stockpile.

Thank you for sharing! I have been hoping/praying that I could include UNO ever since I read that same shoebox story. The full sized ones are $6 (more than my entire per-box-budget) and even the mini ones online are over $1 each - still too much. I snagged enough of these to put one in each of my 10-14 and 5-9 year boxes and for $.75 per two pack, that's just $.38 each!!

Fantastic, Candice!!! Thanks for letting me know...I'll tell my daughter who found them, she will be so glad.
