Default Donation Question

Has anyone had any luck donating cards to Goodwill or The Salvation Army? And if so, how do you value your donation for tax purposes?

I personally donate my extra base cards to a Childern's hospital.

I really like this idea. Do they give you a donation slip upon dropoff?

If I had a chimney, option 1 would be what I would do.

My local hospital does. You can call in advance to find if they would want them and if they issue donation slips.
