We wanted to come up with an act of kindness that would help support the troops in some way. Our Daisy girl scout troop was doing an upcycling art project and we decided to combine the two ideas and make a thank you note for our service members.
After the meeting my kids made even more cards and I have packed them all up to send to A Million Thanks who will deliver the cards to our service members in time for the 4th of July!
The deadline for this year’s 4th of July delivery is June 1, 2013, but if you miss it don’t worry! They deliver cards year round for many of the major holidays.
You can’t send anything edible or use glitter and they encourage you to include a note with any drawings.
Update! A Million Thanks is no longer sending cards and letters to service members. Try Operation Gratitude instead!
Check their website for full details and send a card to a service member! It’s a great kindness act for both kids and adults!
