Proud Supporter

Proceeds from the sale of this card will be donated to Wounded Warriors Canada – a national organization dedicated to funding mental health programs for our ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members and their families. The greeting card comes with a special poem written by Michelle Jane Sales to honour soldiers from each branch of the Canadian military.
