In April and May my children and I have been quite busy hosting card making parties for military appreciation month via Operation Write Home. In a nut shell it's a non-profit dedicated to supporting the troops ability to write home on handmade cards made and donated by crafters.
Another aim is to provide AnyHero mail to keep the troops' morale and spirits up during this season in their lives. We focused on AnyHero mail to thank the troops for our freedoms. During three parties we created a total of 150 thank you letters, pictures and coloring pages. Participants were children from just a few months old to 12 years old.
This is my daughter. Operation Write Home suggests pictures without faces to protect the children's identities. So that's why these pics are taken from different angles. We wanted to show the children working on their thank you notes and coloring pages.
There are many organizations that you can work with to support our troops. I hope you are inspired to get yourself and the children involved in this very needed year-round cause. It was a pleasure to volunteer and share the spirit of community service with the children and I am especially proud of my daughter for seeing the vision and carrying it further.
