    Can anyone donate already printed business cards to make a young mentally challenged mans day? Please help

    This is an odd request. A friend who is staying with me from Canada is leaving in a few days. Her mother works with mentally challenged adults ( some severe) . One chap is apparently very proud of his business card collection and shows them off all the time. Apparently ha has asked if my forend can bring back any cards from the UK. This is a very late request as I am only going to be able to get a few. Does anyone have some they might send here to forward on - perhaps from your own business or where a company has shut down and they are clearing out old business card folders? Any other suggestions where I could get a load quick - already tried my local high street and only managed to get 1! In case you are worried this is not a scam it truly is so this chap gets a bit of excitement having UK cards. If you can help that woudl be great - I can pm you the address to send. Thank very much.

    she never said - not really tatty I suspect anything else would be appreciated I am sure.

    PM me the addy please.

    Have you tried going in to bank branches? Usually you can get at least three from each - mortgage advisers, financial advisers etc? also try supermarkets - they normally have a section full of business cards - right beside the place you can fill in a card selling stuff, near the tills

    my local tesco/sainsburys used to have a large stand in store with local business cards, like plumbers etc, worth a look maybe as you could pick up several at once?
