I have a bunch of 2012 series 2 that I can send, but not until the end of this month or November.

Cool, thanks for throwing your hat into the ring. I'll send you my address near the end of the month.

Inspired by the generosity and creativity of the trades posted here on the boards I came up with an idea that I'd like to try and get off the ground.
Short disclaimer: I know I'm new and I've heard some of you have been burned by idiots in the past. That's not what I want here.
I was organizing my 2012 Topps set last night and I realized that I have a ton of duplicate cards that I won't be able to trade away and will just be sitting around taking up space. My idea is thus:
Every year my church does an angel tree kind of thing at Christmas time to give kids in the Baltimore, MD area something for Christmas when they might not otherwise get anything. A lot of the requests from parents are for clothes and necessities, but almost every request includes some toys or such. I thought it would be neat to have enough packs of cards (50 per pack, more or less) to insert with each childs small bunch of gifts.
To keep it simple I was thinking we could limit it to 2012 Topps cards. That's what I have the most of and all the cards I would be putting in would be cards valued under $0.99. I wouldn't be asking any of you for anything more valuable than that for donation. It would be a great way to give to less fortunate kids, clean out our collections, get kids interested in the hobby and continue the generosity I've seen displayed thus far.
So, let me know if you like the idea, if you've got some input, and if you'd like to participate. In addition to the cards if anyone wants to donate supplies (i.e. baggies to arrange the packs of cards) I'd be happy to take those too. I'll take care of arranging all the cards into packs and delivering them.
Please note, this is not a request to beef up my collection. I have no interest in being some kind of schiester on here. I just really have been inspired and also have become passionate about this hobby in such a short amount of time.
Ok, that's all. Sorry for the long post, looking forward to seeing the interest in this.
