Celebrate National Children’s Day with Operation Warm

National Children’s Day is a day dedicated to the future.

Recognized on the second Sunday of every June, National Children’s Day is a day for us to cherish the joys of children. It’s a day to be mindful of and spend time with the special little ones in our lives. It’s also a day to think about the millions of other children living in America.

Former President George W. Bush once said, “Every child in every neighborhood has unique gifts to offer. We must nurture our children’s dreams, help them develop their talents and abilities, and ensure their healthy development so that they may reach their full potential. Our success in this vital endeavor will affect the direction of their lives and the future strength and vitality of our Nation.” On National Children’s Day, it’s important not just to think of your own, but to think of every child you may come into contact with.

Now, more then ever, American children need a day of love and recognition. A staggering 2.5 million children are homeless in America, with about 15 million living below the poverty line. While you spend time with the children or grandchildren in your life, consider the lives of those children who live in poverty. A small gift can bring some of these children hope, happiness, and warmth.

Keeping children warm can change their lives. What better way to honor our future then by giving every one of them the chance to do something great? Your donation will help start the manufacturing process of brand new colorful coats. These coats will be given to children in need, in just a few short months, as soon as the warm summer weather turns cold.
