Cassy's Card

Today as I was checking my emails for Thankasoldier I received this email from a woman in Ontario who told me about her six year old daughter who had created a Christmas Card she wanted to send to soldiers.

"During Christmas break my 6 year old daughter Cassy created the attached card. Now what I think makes it so special is the fact that when she made it she was 1/2 way thru before she said to me " I'm making a Christmas Card for the soldiers Mummy" when I said " That is a great idea honey is this something you are talking about at school." Her answer was "No I just felt like doing it". I was so proud of her and I just had to share it. So I was wondering if you could help me forward it to "the soldiers."

"Do you mean soldiers in Afghanistan? Or do you mean the soldiers here in Toronto?"

I asked Cassy which soldiers she meant and this was her reply.... "I meant the soldiers who have died, and the soldiers in Afghanistan, and the soldiers in Hati, and here and all over the world. I know that we can't guarantee that the dead ones will see it but I want every soldier in the world to see it".


I replied and told them about my "Christmas cards for Sunnybrook Veterans" project and they are going to get involved and send a few along to the address.


IMPORTANT: If you are on Twitter it would be amazing to see #CassysCard trending and this is my attempt to make that happen, so if you have a twitter account you can copy and paste the following and TWEET IT :)

Thanks

  2. Dear Cassy,
    My son is an Iraq war veteran and he just saw your card. All he could say was "wow, just.... wow" He read the whole story twice. This is a guy who has not been himself since he got back, but he was definitely touched by the story and the card. You have a very special gift. Thank You !!!
    Love, Pam

  26. Dear Cassy,
    What a great job you've done designing this card that will lift the spirits of so many!! I design cards to be a light in the darkness to those who are going through a difficult time. My daughter & I have both given our artwork to uplift people. I encourage you to keep on doing just what you've been doing with your cards. You have a wonderful gift that God has given you & I hope you will continue to use it like you did here with you sweet card. Please thank your mom for raising you to be the giving person that you already are. You truly have a heart for people. Keep up the good work!!

    Sunshine Susan

    Sincerely,
    Sunshine Susan
