"LIKE IT FOR TIME" ASKS CIVILIAN AND MILITARY CHILDREN ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO JOIN TOGETHER DURING MONTH OF THE MILITARY CHILD
As Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden launch their initiative to honor military families, LIFT launches its own project to get kids excited about reaching out to others.
We’d like to ask you to invite your area schools to participate in our huge paper chain effort,
LIFT LINK LOVE, by offering link-making as a fun project sometime during the month of April.
Because April is the Month of the Military Child, now is the perfect time for students in your local school district to add their links to this worldwide paper chain showing the love for military children–and families. Making the links–writing on them, drawing on them, gluing things to them–will inspire their creativity while reminding them of kids their age whose parents are, or have been, deployed.
All links will be added to the supersized paper chain to be used in a special project down the road.
The deadline for schools to have their links gathered and ready for pickup, or to put in the mail, is April 29. (This is NOT the LIFT LINK LOVE project deadline – this deadline is only for links submitted by schools.)
Click the links below to download and print:
1) a link-making flyer that includes the mailing address where all links should be sent, and
2) a sample letter that you can personalize for a specific school asking administrators to encourage their staff to involve students in this project.
Let’s encourage kids to show the love to military kids!
