Family traditions are a wonderful way to turn positive behaviors — like charitable giving — into regular habits, and year-end holidays provide the perfect anchor point for establishing annual charitable traditions with your kids.
This year, we continued our simple but powerful Thanksgiving tradition of making hand-made holiday cards for the troops as originally described in this quick charitable family project post two years ago.
If you’d like to participate in Operation Holiday Card this year too, you’ll have to hurry! Your cards need to arrive to the team in Shreveport by Wednesday, November 30th.
Looking for examples or perhaps a little creative inspiration? Here are our cards from this year. The heartfelt messages give me goosebumps every time I read them.
