Thank you for your interest in the Holiday Card Challenge for our Military and their families! Your contribution makes a real difference to the morale and spirits of our warriors abroad and state-side.
Students from preschool through university create the most heartfelt messages for our warriors. Hundreds of thousands of American students have created cards of care and holiday cheer for our Military and their families. Likewise businesses of all sizes, private groups, faith communities.individuals and families…you name join in!
In 2019, the New Hampshire Commissioner of Education challenged all New Hampshire schools to participate and invited every school across the United states to participate in this program.
2020 brought its own challenges with the Pandemic. Schools and businesses across the Country, whether in remote, hybrid , or in-school (business/office) education joined in and sent tens of thousands of cards. I applaud the teachers, students, and employees for their generous hearts amidst such complex times.
2021 ALL 50 STATES joined in to send 138,000 cards of holiday cheer and care to our Troops, Veterans and Service Families.
2022 kicked off a Valentines Day Challenge and sent 5,000 cards of love to our Troops. The first annual HAPPY SPRING 4 TROOPS Card Challenge resulted in sending 7,000 cards! The 2022 Holiday Card Challenge resulted in sending 224,000 crds of holiday cheer!
The 2023 Valentines Mini-Challenge was a success, following the format guidelines above but adjusted to Valentine’s Day We are excited to share the love with ur Military and their families.
Our 2023 Happy Spring/Easter/Passover/Ramadan Mini-Challenge has been a success, already having sent out 9,000 plus cards.
