I’m not in the Richmond Area. How can I participate?
We are thrilled to have volunteers and friends from across the state–and the country–help with this endeavor. While you may not be able to use the cards we provided at the Memorial, you can still use Thank you cards, Valentines, blank cards, or homemade/handwritten letters. We are providing mailing addresses and sample language to help get you started.
What should I write?
To help get you started, we have attached a list of suggested phrases, but feel free to use your own language. We encourage scout and school groups to draw or share a meaningful story, if you like. Be creative!
Do I have to use the Memorial cards?
No, if you want to purchase or create your own cards—or valentines!—we encourage you to do so.
Can I write more than 10 cards?
Of course! We want to reach as many of Virginia’s veterans as possible. If you want to write or create additional cards, please let us know.
I have a connection to Veteran patients in Virginia. Can I request cards be sent to my organization?
Yes. We would love to expand our reach to help let as many of Virginia’s veterans as possible know we are thinking of them. Please reach out to us at email@example.com to find out next steps.
