Operation Gratitude. Free Cards for Teachers and Students to send to the Military

Send a Note, Share a Smile

Thank you for your interest in Pear Tree Greetings' support of Operation Gratitude! Our goal: Send 75,000 cards to our men and women in the military.

Here's the gist:

* We'll send a package to the first 2,500 teachers who sign up
* Up to 30 cards per classroom
* Free to you and your students

At Pear Tree, we believe in the power of connection, especially by sharing a handwritten note. Through this partnership with Operation Gratitude, we encourage teachers all across America to share with their students the value of saying thank you. Together, let's lift the morale of the men and women in our military. After all, who doesn't like a smile?

Attention Teachers
This is a great opportunity to teach the kids in your classroom a lesson in listening, writing and creativity; these cards are meant to be colored! Most of all, it's an opportunity to teach a lesson in gratitude to others so far away. Get out the them how far away our service men and women really are. Don't be shy-you can send a note too!
