Veterans day

goHappy would love to give a big old Shout Out today to all of our troops who have served to protect our country both past and present - Happy Veterans Day!

And, as we celebrate these awesome folks today, we also wanted to throw out a handful of ideas to help you and your kids celebrate this day and express your thanks to our amazing Veterans.

For the kids:

  1. Talk to your kids about relatives who have served in the military (and pull in any photos you have of them in uniform)
  2. Have them wish a happy Veterans Day to any friends or family who are serving or did serve
  3. Have them write a thank you letter through A Million Thanks
  4. Have any leftover Halloween candy? Have them send it to the troops through Operation Gratitude

For you:

  1. Thank any co-workers who have served
  2. Reach out to friends and family who have served 
  3. Support a military charity like the USO or Fallen Patriots

So instead of just updating your Facebook status this year, try doing at least one small action to thank a Veteran (and have your kids do the same!) - they’ll love hearing it!
