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.
Additional information on this simple but meaningful activity – including card design ideas and addresses from across Canada where they can be sent – is available on our website.
Thanks and have a safe and happy holidays,The Veterans Affairs Canada Learning Team
