I love having school on holidays like Columbus Day, Veteran’s Day and President’s Day. Why – because it gives a wonderful opportunity to teach my students about these important holidays and why we celebrate them. This Veteran’s Day Activity is a great way to help your students learn the importance of the holiday while helping Veterans too!
I am so incredibly grateful for the veterans of the United States Armed Forces. Their sacrifice so that we can live in a free country, generally safe from harm’s way is not meaningless to me. I wanted to give back in some way, so I decided to create a Veterans Day Flip Book and donate 100% of the proceeds to a foundation which serves and helps our veterans. Last year, I was able raise and donate $1,407 to the L.E.E.K. Hunting and Mountain Preserve through the sale of this Flip Book! The L.E.E.K. Preserve provides outdoor hunting, fishing, and recreational experiences to the disabled veterans of the United States Armed Forces. The work this organization does is inspirational and incredible. You can read more about L.E.E.K. HERE.
As a mom of 4 boys, I’ve been grateful and humbled every year that my sons have been able to go to the L.E.E.K. Preserve to help the veterans there with a hunt during bear season. I consider it a great honor that my own sons have been able to spend time with men who sacrificed so much for our country.
I am once again donating 100% of the proceeds from this Veterans Day Flip Book to L.E.E.K. Please consider not only purchasing this great resource, but also encouraging others to do the same. I look forward to donating all the money from this project to help our veterans!
You can purchase this Veteran’s Day activity HERE at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
Thank you in advance for supporting such a wonderful cause!
