Teaching our children to serve and think of the needs of others is something my husband and I try to instill in our children. Finding a project that allows the children to serve that lines up with their ability can sometimes be a challenge. So, when I heard that Xerox created and easy & FREE way to send postcards to our military service members, through their Let’s Say Thanks project, I was extremely excited.
Here are the steps that will take you & your preschooler less than 3 minutes to complete.
- Go to www.LetsSayThanks.com
- Pick out a postcard of your choice
- Add your child’s name (first name is sufficient) & home town
- Click Send
Really, it’s that easy. The card is then printed and sent to a military member serving our country. What a great opportunity to teach our kids about how the military serves our country. Also, what a great way to touch the heart of someone who is serving who may need a little encouragement for the day!
