Cards for Soldiers – Random Acts of Kindness

December 15, 2014By 1 Comment

Hey everyone! We are participating in the Random Acts of Kindness calendar supplied by Coffee Cups and Crayons. It’s pretty neat and has something for every day of December that anyone can do so we are doing it as a family! One of the days has “Make a card for a Soldier”. So we did….

Rami and Christmas Card

Well, as I said, we are doing it as a family so we made ….. 60 of them!

Christmas cards for the troops

Everyone drew a picture to the inside blank page and wrote a note (or in Bob’s case, just wrote Bob). All the art was made with love and in thanks for the soldiers. 

Making cards for the troops

We also included some individually wrapped candy canes to go out with the cards. A little sweet for these awesome men and women serving so far from home!

Troop cards ready to go

We sent these cards to Emily Hood to send to the soldiers.

Emily founded Greeting for Troops in 2007 when she was 9 years old. Pretty amazing! She has sent thousands of cards to our troops serving over seas in that time and they do appreciate the love and support. According to Emily, it’s not too late – send those cards and love to her and she will see that a soldier will receive them!

Hope all of you have a very Merry and Wonderful Christmas and remember to practice your Random Acts of Kindness!!
Thanks for reading, Millie & Kristina

P.S. If you wonder why you do not receive a card from us this year…..read the above post! 🙂 xoxo
