it’s easy to remember and acknowledge the sacrifices and bravery of our military service men and women around holidays like memorial day, armed forces day and veterans day. but not always top of mind during other traditional family-gathering holidays like thanksgiving and christmas.
and because many active military persons aren’t able to spend these treasured holidays with their families, it seems more important now than ever to show our appreciation and support.
so when I stumbled upon the non-profit organization a million thanks, I knew it would be a perfect holiday art project for the kiddos.
A Million Thanks is a year-round campaign to collect cards, letters, emails, and prayer messages of appreciation for distribution to U.S. Military Men and Women, past and present.
check their site to find a drop off location near you or just mail in a letter. they can be sent year-round, but the deadline for christmas correspondence is december 1.
while this isn’t directly related to or impacting our environment, it is beneficial for the heart and souls of so many.
thanks a million.
