What better way to spend some time making and sending handmade Cards of Cheer to Veterans who are living in long term care facilities?
This year has been difficult for them with the Covid 19 pandemic. Some Veterans may not be receiving much company. Sending them a Card of Cheer could really brighten their day! It is a great gift to send these real-life heroes a personal message of gratitude to tell them that you remember and thank them for what they did.
Handmade cards are very special. Each student can create their own card with their own artwork - drawings or construction paper designs glued on, such as trees, birds, flowers, angels, and more. They can be creative as they wish!
Start with a greeting like, “Dear Brave Veteran,” “Dear Veteran,” or “Dear Hero.” They can then write about how thankful they are for what the Veteran did for our country and how they will remember their sacrifices and achievements. Some messages could be:
After that, youth should feel free to wish the Veteran a happy day!
Collect all the cards and ensure that they contain appropriate messaging before sending. Group all cards destined for the same location in a single package.
The Cards can be sent to Veterans near your community.
You may also send a Card of Cheer to those who are currently serving Canadian Armed Forces members. This program is supervised by the Department of National Defence. Messages from your class might just be the morale booster a currently serving member needs to carry on with a mission.
You could also contact your local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion and arrange distribution to Veterans in your area.
