Every year young children create special Valentines to brighten the lives of our nation’s Veterans.
1. Cards can be created in every shape and size — and are made with everything from tissue paper, stickers, and colored doilies to crayons, construction paper, and rubber stamps. Please do not place glitter on the cards.
You can send a store-bought valentine; hand-crafted cards, however, make Veterans feel extra special. Valentines of all shapes, sizes, and colors are welcome. However, valentines that are greeting-card size are easier to package and distribute.
2. Please do not include candy or chocolate with the valentines. Do not use sparkles or materials that easily break off the valentines.
3. Participants can sign their first name. However, do not include addresses or phone numbers.
4. Do not put individual valentines in sealed envelopes. Send a single large envelope containing all of the valentines.
5. Do not put the date or year on the valentines.
6. Make sure the participants are aware of who Veterans are—they are living and were men and women who served in the military. Avoid using "RIP" and images related to violence or death such as graveyards or guns.
7. If you would like to write in the card, tell the Veteran why they are important, what you plan to do this year to remember our nation's proud military history, or the reason you want to wish them a Happy Valentine's Day. Thank the Veteran for his or her service. You can write a poem or include one of significance to Valentine's Day or to Veterans, such as, "Roses are Red".
8. Drop off or mail your cards to the nearest Veterans Medical center.
The veterans would be thrilled if you could drop off your valentines in person at your local VA hospital. If you don't know where your local VA Center is click on this link to find a location near you.
