Sponsor a Soldier Campaign was created to honor and offer comfort to Canadian Soldiers and Veterans.
Every year, we invite schools, Churches, businesses, families and other organizations to “Sponsor a Soldier” for $50. The campaign runs October 1 – November 11 annually, although Soldier blankets can be requested throughout the year. Blankets are sent to Soldiers serving overseas or when they return home injured or suffering from PTSD. They have been sent all across Canada, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Iraq, Poland, and the Ukraine. Blankets also are delivered to Veterans in Legions, Nursing homes and in Hospitals. Faith spends countless hours visiting Veterans and thoroughly enjoys hearing them share their stories and pictures, and showing her their medals. Faith tries to also visit Veterans and participate in various ceremonies on Remembrance Day every year. When a Soldier takes their life, Faith tries her best to send blankets to their families. Faith also enjoys visiting Trenton Air Base and the Veteran Wing at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. This is a wonderful Campaign for schools to get involved with. They can make pictures, write letters and sponsor blankets to be sent to Canadian Soldiers and Veterans around the world.
