Monday is Memorial Day and before you rush to take advantage of the many discounts out there, we want to encourage you to take a moment and observe the day for what it was intended: as a time to honor those who have lost their lives in service of our country.
During this day, we should also think of those who never fully returned from the battlefield and struggle with resulting complications, both seen and unseen. There are many great organizations that care for our veterans and rely on donations. We hope you also consider giving what you saved from today’s deals to those organizations and here are a few that we hope you consider:
The D.A.V. provides lifetime support for veterans and their family with filing benefits, employment, and transportation for medical appointments.
Modern Military is an organization that provides advocacy, care, and free legal services for the LGBTQ+ and HIV+ military and veteran communities.
The Wounded Warriors Project provides the military and service people who have suffered a physical or mental injury in service on or after 9/11 with free resources and programs to aid them in their journey toward wellness.
In honor of Memorial Day, we also want to offer a discount of 15% off of our downloadable pdf patterns starting tomorrow. This promotion will only last until 11:59 p.m. on Monday so you have to act quick. Use the promo code: MemorialDay2020 when you check out.
