Christmas Cards 4 Veterans - Thank You Everyone

Christmas Cards for Veterans

A few weeks before Christmas I had posted a blog with an address to send cards to Veterans at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Ontario and I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to send one over.

I want say thank you to everyone at Sunnybrook Hospitals Twitter Page who were glad to accept my request so close to Christmas and helping us make this happen for our Veterans.

This was Sunnybrooks note today on Facebook : 
Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre With the help of Thank A Soldier, this winter people from across North America sent holiday cards to our WWII and Korean War veterans. On December 25 and 26, over 200 of our vets received the cards and read their messages of gratitude. Thanks will never be enough!

Their Recreational Therapist enjoyed handing them out and watching the reactions and also I heard from a friend on Twitter that one of the Veterans had sent a thank you note back to them which is amazing. 

Every year leading up to Remembrance Day you can donate a flag in the name of our fallen heroes and send a message of thanks for their courage and sacrifice.

The flagswill  be placed on the lawn in front of Sunnybrook's Veterans Centre on November 11 so Canada's Veterans can see that citizens across the country recognize and value their courageous contributions.

Flags are available in 2 sizes for a $20 or $50 donation and are eligible for a tax receipt.  Help get the word out about  Operation Raise a Flag today.
