Join the Cedar Rapids Moms Blog’s #CardsForCops Campaign

Every day men and women in our community put on their badge and put their lives on the line to protect and serve.  They don’t know what the day will bring, what dangers they may face. And yet they bravely do it anyway. For you. For me. For our community.

After the senseless murder of two police officers in Urbandale, Iowa, our hearts were broken. What can you do in the face of such evil? 

The answer is love.

We can show our gratitude, support, and love to the law enforcement officers in our community. And to their families.  These are our neighbors. Our family. Our friends.  And they need to know that we stand with them.

Which is why Cedar Rapids Moms Blog is creating the #CardsForCops Campaign!

#cardsforcopsHow it Works:

Simply pick up a thank you card from the store or make your own! Include a note of thanks, either to a police officer you know, or in general to your nearest police department. Deliver it personally or drop it in the mail. This is a terrific project to get your kids involved in! If they like to color, print off one of these coloring pages they can color and include with their card!
