Our goal is to spread a little Christmas cheer to the men and women of our country who have so bravely sacrificed to keep our country free.
Founded by Ashley Hyde in 2008, The Art of Encouragement sent out 450 Christmas cards their first Christmas. 2012 will be our fifth year, and we have plans of sending over 10,000 Christmas cards to VA hospitals and care centers around the United States.
New to TAOE in 2010 was our airport outreach. We passed out 75 cards to uniformed soldiers in DFW airport the week before Christmas. We plan on traveling back to DFW this year to pass out hundreds.
New to TAOE in 2011 is our Hero of the Month program. We plan on sending a surprise encouragement package to one hero each month. Want to nominate a hero? Click HERE and read more about the Hero of the Month program.
