Letters to Veterans
You learned how to make beautiful marbled paper last week. In honor of Veterans’ Day, why not turn some of that marbled paper into cards for our nation’s heroes? With the holidays approaching, it’s a perfect time to recognize these brave men and women. We’ve compiled a list of places that will get your students’ handmade cards in the hands of those who served our country. And for those of you reading this who are veterans, thank you for your service!
Our goals are to ensure that every deployed service member and veteran in a Veteran’s home or hospital receives a care package or care letter. Annual year-round support and the Challenge America Campaign (July and November–national packing events) help to support these goals.
Our Heroes’ Journey started the Cheers for Heroes program to bring smiles to combat wounded veterans and vets who are living in nursing facilities or hospitals around the country.
America owes our military veterans an eternal debt of gratitude. Now is your chance to thank those courageous veterans who served our nation in past military conflicts. Includes a letter-writing guide for teachers and students.
We are asking individuals, schools, churches, businesses, and other organizations to write cards, letters, emails, and prayer messages of appreciation for our military, past and present. It is our goal to see that our military – active, reserve, and veterans – receive these messages, whether they are serving at home, abroad, or are injured in hospitals.
