Veteran's Day is an opportunity to remember those who have sacrificed so much to help keep our nation free. If you have heroes in your own family tree, please consider donating in their honor to Operation Write Home. Operation Write Home (OWH) is an organization that supports our nation's deployed heroes by sending handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them until they all come home. As OWH reaches a milestone of sending 2.5 million cards (by Veteran's Day), the board of directors is sending out a fun challenge.
Here's the challenge – Donating in honor of your family's military Heroes.
If your family includes Past and Present military Heroes, donate an amount for each in their honor. This helps cover costs to ship over 1,700 cards and make a difference in the lives of hundreds of families who will receive messages from their hero, in his or her own handwriting, on beautiful hand-crafted cards. The cards often become cherished keepsakes and contribute to stronger family ties, as well as a much needed morale boost for those who are currently serving.
