Month of the Military Child

April is Month of the Military Child


"In 1986, Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger designated April as Month of the Military Child, a time when each branch of the military service recognizes the sacrifices made by the children of parents who are serving our country."
I can't imagine how difficult it must be for kids who have a parent away serving our country. On top of worrying about whether mom or dad will be okay, these kids sacrifice so much. The serving parent isn't around to share birthdays, holidays, and all the everyday accomplishments.

While we thank our military personnel for their service, we mustn't forget their families who sacrifice for our safety and security.

I am writing to ask all of our crafters to remember the kids, and to send a donation for a child or baby during the month of April. Everything that we receive will be sent to a baby or child with a deployed parent.

Please take this opportunity to let these kids know that we appreciate them and their parents!

Donations can be sent to:
Marine Corps Kids
2532 N. Skyline Drive
Bloomington, IN 47404
