Holiday greetings are wanted for Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members who are deployed abroad. Many of whom will not be home with their families this holiday season.
The government says the envelopes may only contain correspondence and packages containing anything else will be returned.
Cards and letters typically need to arrive by December 9th in order to be shipped in time for Christmas.
You can send them to:
Any Canadian Armed Forces Member PO Box 5004 Stn Forces Belleville, ON K8N 5W6
Whenever the holidays roll around, people wonder how they can give to others. What better way to do this than by having youth sending handmade Holiday Cheer Cards 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 even see their families this holiday season. Sending them a Holiday Cheer Card 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, snowmen, winter sports, birds, wreaths, flowers, angels, presents 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 holiday!
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 Holiday Cheer Cards can be sent to Veterans near your community.
You may also send a Holiday Cheer Card 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.

This 8-week program offers weekly live workouts for your body and your mind.
Each Monday, we’ll have a session to help keep your minds strong and, each week, we’ll also have a new workout delivered by coaches, athletes, and volunteers from across the province.
At the core of this program is the chance to choose an exercise goal that fits your life, where you can choose to commit to exercising between 15 minutes a day or up to 1.5 hours every day during this program. Each week, there is also a BINGO card of activities that you can use to help guide your activities and keep you on track. Plus, there’s lots of fun things to do, too!
To help motivate you, with each of your activities that you complete, you earn points! And, if you’d like to create a team with some of your friends, you can not only keep each other accountable to make sure you do your exercises, but you’ll also earn team points when you all complete your activities!
