A Plea for Letters of Gratitude for Soldier’s in Harm’s way

Make a difference from the comfort of your own home. Help with COVID-19 from your home through virtual volunteering.

This message from Packages4Patriots is a suggestion for a way you can help during these difficult times.
If you have extra time on your hands and would like to give back to your community before life resumes to normal please consider taking the time to write a letter to a soldier in harm’s-way today. If you are home with children who are bored, this is a project they too could help with creating paintings and drawings.
Packages4Patriots strives to include personal letters in every care package that we send. These letters and drawings ensure that a Soldier, Sailor, Marine or Airman knows that you are thinking of them. It will only take 5 minutes out of your day to write a letter, but it will bring joy to our troops that will last a lifetime. Sadly, most months we do not have enough letters and drawings for every care package.
Here is some help to get started:
Letters: I write about everything. I include sketches and photos and poems and stories, quotes from what is going on around me and maybe some lyrics from a song. A puzzle, a quiz, a riddle.
Kid’s Art: Don’t ask them to draw anything specific. Just collect them; A common favorite drawing is stick figures of your family and pets in front of your house.

Keep your message upbeat and positive
Be thankful ~~ share a little bit of yourself
Ask questions; however, do not discuss death or killing
Avoid politics completely and religion in excess
It’s all about appreciation and respect
Ask yourself: "Will this letter bring a smile to someone’s face?"
