Cards for Soldiers


More and more people are seeking ways to become involved in Cards for Soldiers and other support efforts. Classrooms of students, scrapbooking groups, mothers, and Americans in general want to let our military men and women know that we are deeply grateful for the sacrifices they make each and every day for our liberty and freedom.

What more heartfelt words can be spoken about Cards for Soldiers and other support efforts than those from Patti Patton-Bader, the mother of two American soldiers and founder of SoldiersAngels.com:

May no soldier go unloved.
May no soldier walk alone.
May no soldier be forgotten,
Until they all come home

With love and respect,
Patti Patton-Bader

Cards for Soldiers - Formed by a group of scrapbookers, these women have a bit of a twist on their “cards for soldiers”. Rather than sending cards with messages to our military personnel, they send homemade (blank inside) cards to deployed units for the soldiers to use to write to family and friends; and it’s been a big hit with the solders. Great idea! Check it out.

Operation Write Home - This organization also sends blank cards for soldiers use as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them. See how you can get inspired and become involved.

Soldiers’ Angels – This organization was founded by the mother of two American soldiers. Her website states that “Soldiers' Angels has quite a few teams that specialize in fulfilling a specific need for our troops. By joining one or more of our teams you too can get involved in sending handmade blankets to the wounded, supporting our military chaplains, helping our soldiers distribute toys and clothing to children in Iraq and Afghanistan, sending special cards to soldiers and much more!” Fantastic work!
