Valentine’s for Veterans

Dear educator,

It may be wintertime but did you know you can help bring a little extra warmth to some very deserving people on Valentine’s Day? Each year grateful Canadians create thousands of handmade valentines for Veterans who live in long-term care facilities. Reaching out with a heartfelt message of thanks is a wonderful way for youth to remember the brave men and women who have served in uniform over the years. Learn about our popular ‘Valentines for Vets’ initiative today!  www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/get-involved/valentines-for-veterans

Veterans Affairs Canada offers a wealth of free, bilingual resources that can be used to help young people learn more about the courageous Canadians who have served our country in the cause of peace and freedom from the 19th century to today. Explore the ‘Educators’ section of our web site and see what we have for yourself. www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/information-for/educators

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue…
Valentine’s Day is a great time, for Veterans to hear from you!
