Free Pack of Postcards for Peace

Free Pack of Postcards for Peace

Through special events and acts of remembrance, we recognize the sacrifices our Veterans made.

Postcards for Peace provides an opportunity to send postcards to express messages of thanks to those who served Canada in times of war, military conflict and peace or to still-serving Canadian Armed Forces members. This learning activity allows you to actively remember the sacrifices and achievements of Canadian Veterans.

In collaboration with PostcardUnited and Veterans Affairs Canada, we will send a pack of Postcards for Peace (until closed) to members who take a moment to make a comment below to thank a veteran and or share a story of what remembrance day means to you (hurry, supplies are running low). (Ships worldwide for free/Expédié gratuitement dans le monde entire.)

Par le biais d’événements spéciaux et d’actes de commémoration, nous reconnaissons les sacrifices consentis par nos anciens combattants.

Cartes postales pour la paix offre la possibilité d’envoyer des cartes postales pour exprimer des messages de remerciement à ceux qui ont servi le Canada en temps de guerre, de conflit militaire et de paix ou aux membres encore en service des Forces armées canadiennes. Cette activité d’apprentissage vous permet de vous souvenir activement des sacrifices et des réalisations des vétérans canadiens.

En collaboration avec PostcardUnited et Anciens Combattants Canada,

  • Thank you for your service to this country. Your bravery, sacrifice, and strength do not go unnoticed, and we will always be indebted to you and your family for all that you have given to the country. I would like to thank you very much for your service! Thank you for your time, bravery, and sacrifice for this country.

  • I reply from overseas and I have no in-depth knowledge of it.
    But I am happy to participate and I would be happy to send one or more postcards for the occasion in my turn.
    I thank P.c.U. and Veterans Affairs Canada

  • As someone who lost several family members in World War II, I am grateful to those who came to Europe to fight against the Nazis and their allies to put an end to that horrific part of history.

  • We hope one day to see all the Countries in peace, there is no Army in Costa Rica, we live in peace and harmony with everybody. Veterans love their Countries,
    Postcardunited is the best.

  • Wow ! I’ll be happy to receive this card from mr country. We all dream of a world and peace. Every little action is a beginning. We have to stay strond !

  • Remembrance is remembering. And we should always remember and pay tribute to those who contributed to keeping peace and paid the highest price. Still, the world would be a better place if there would be no need for any one or any force “to fight for peace” or “to keep it”.
    Thus remembering, let’s remember and hope for a our world to be a better place for all people.

  • It’s a great thing to try to keep peace back to corners of the world you may have never heared from before. A little light in the darkness of crizes and war.

  • I want to say Thank you to all peacekeepers, much love from me sending from the other part of the world. Special Thanks to Postcard United and Veterans Affairs Canada.

  • During my professional training, school lessons were interrupted every day at 12 noon and a church bell was rung for peace. Then we sang another song. Our teachers said peace is not only the absence of war but also the presence of God. Peace, love, faith, hope, dignified life and health for everyone wish Markus and his dear Mama Karin

  • As a former soldier and interim civilian employee in the military of a NATO member country, I appreciate active duty, but especially veterans.
    Therefore, also from me respectable greetings and thanks to the comrades in Canada including the veterans and their organizations.

  • What a great chance to say THANKS to Canadian Veterans. A page of local history that I have missed as a science student until recent years. Canadian soldiers actually engaged in a battle to defend the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong against a Japanese attack during WWII. They showed the courage of veterans. Though they were facing a battle that was impossible to win, they refused to surrender. Many of them were sacrificed or became prisoners of war and were tortured cruelly. They could not reach their homeland ever again. Thank you for defending Hong Kong!

  • What a great initiative to pay respect to the Canadian Veterans!
    Thank you to all the soldiers for keeping peace in the Balkans and giving us the opportunity to live the life we like! Thanks for reminding us what is important!

  • This is really great opportunity. I think that commemorating war veterans is very important. They are people, who really knows what is happening during the wars and can tell it to all of us. Most of us are just sitting safely at homes and reading news about the horrible things. Personal talk and shared experience is something that can completely change our point of view.

    My big thank is coming to all veterans that were fighting for restoring or creating peace between nations and are able to reffer about it. I think that is is much more important now, when the war in Europe between Ukraine and Russia is occuring.

  • Having 3 family members that served in the military I always try to help any veterans. I thank you all for your service and pray for peace for all nations.

  • My family is made of people who serve their country, hence I want to personally thank all veterans, who always put others first, for the betterment of all. Your servitude is not forgotten.

  • As a Korean who experienced a severe war just decades ago, I know the importance of keeping peace. Thank you for your service, veterans and also thanks for making such a meaningful project, PU team!

  • Ahimsa Paramo Dharmo!
    Non-Violence is highest virtue in life.
    Thank you all veterans for ensuring that we strive to live in peace.

  • Canada has done so much to help protect the right of people all over the world to live their lives in peace and safety from war and violence. Thank you to the brave men and women doing this important work!

  • This is a wonderful thing to do! My husband served in the U.S. Air Force for 26 years and flew missions over the White House after 9/11. Until then, he served in Afghanistan and elsewhere in war torn countries. We need peace now more than ever for this planet.

  • I have never experienced war, but I am very afraid of war, especially the recent Russia-Ukraine war, which I feel is a disaster for civilians. I hope there will be no war in the world, I hope everyone will be better, and finally, I hope PU friends everything goes well!!!

  • Greetings from China, every person who devoted themselves to yearning for peace deserves to be remembered by us. Although wars seem far away from us, all of us should make the advocating for peace heard. Thank you Postcardunited, Veterans Affairs Canada and the heroes.

  • Greetings from the Czech Republic. Canada is far from us, however, we all remember what happened through TV documents. We would like to thank to all veterans for your service and everything you have done, you are still heroes for us. We all appreciate that. Thank you.

  • “At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.” – (part of The Ode).
    Defending freedom comes at a high price. Thank you for your service and ultimate sacrifice.
    Lest we forget.

  • Being born and raised and currently living in what is considered Military City USA, the service that was given by these veterans is much appreciated. I have several relatives who have served in different branches of the military. Thank you all for the sacrifice and service to ensure our freedom.

  • Greetings from Brazil. We must all promote world peace and treat each other as our brothers, regardless of which country you are we are all one world. thank you postcardunited.

  • To all the veterans who sacrifice so much in order to keep others safe, I thank you all with all of my heart and truly admire all that you have down while serving and for everything that you continue to do now to serve your country!!!

    To me, remembrance means to embrace all the sacrifices that veterans have made while in service. It also means to take the time to thank a veteran and listen to all of their stories that they are willing to share! We must always remember that it is due to veterans and those who are in active service, that we remain safe in our homeland. Thus, it is vital to acknowledge veterans and those in active service because they gave up so much of themselves, for the soul purpose of helping others. It is truly a beautiful and admirable decision!

    If I am one of the lucky few to send out some of your postcards, I would be honored to send them all over the world to bring more attention to your cause!

    Thank you very much!!!

  • Thank you to everyone who found the courage and strength to fight for peace and for people who cannot fight alone. Thank you for all the homes and children saved. Thank you for all those who fought, but did not live to see victory and peace. Honor to their memory. Markéta (Czech republic)

  • Hello from China. Thanks to all veterans done for the peace. And thanks to PostcardUnited this warm and meaningful gesture.
    PEACE MAKES THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.

  • Thank you everyone for your service. Peace is what every human being deserves.
    War is something that every civilized person is afraid of, and you help us avoid it with your work.
    God bless you all!

  • I come from another country. Just the same, I thank you for your service. My grandfather was a veteran during World War II. He wanted peace for his home country and for his host country. His service brought honor to the family and made a lasting impact in the course of history. May your service leave behind a legacy of peace to the world.

  • It is very important to express respect and gratitude to all war veterans for their military and labor exploits. Look around – there are so few veterans left! They need our help and support. Honor and respect for veterans is the sacred duty of everyone. We must know, remember, appreciate and cherish the memory of those who, without hesitation, gave their lives for peace and for a brighter future.

  • We in Malaysia recently celebrated our 65th National Day on the 31st of August 2022. It was a day to remember our hard work in gaining the independence as well as the many battles that we faced to rid the country of the communists. One of my uncles was a decorated Naval Officer and another was a decorated soldier, who both fought with blood, sweat and tears to help clear the path for what Malaysia is today, a small peaceful country in the South East Asia. In Malaysia we honor our heroes by placing our utmost trust with our Royal Malaysian Police, the Armed Forces and of course, the highly distinguished and elite Commandos of VAT69. There are many more unsung heroes around us. May they always be around to keep us safe.

  • I want to thank any person who is has brought us peace. Especially people who have lost there life to peace. Thank you veterans, and the men and woman currently serving for peace.

  • In INDIA we celebrate our veterans every year on January 14th. Most families in my neighborhood have someone who has served in the army at some point of time. Thank you to all our veterans for your service and sacrifices so that we can live in a free country.

  • Hello from Sydney – Been a veteran myself (I served in the French Navy during the Lebanon conflicts in 1982 -1983 on the aircraft carrier Clémenceau) I help as a marshal each year for the Australian ANZAC Day march (held on 25 April every year since 1925 in Sydney)
    Thank you – Laurent in Sydney

  • As a retired US Marine, Veterans Day is very important and a day that is celebrated! It is because of our Veterans that we have the freedom to do and say what we like! I come from a long line of Military Veterans that fought for our country. I served in Desert Storm, my uncle served in Vietnam and my great Uncle and Grandfather served in WW2. Thank you to all the Veterans all over the world for keeping us protected and free!

His grandfather (my kid’s great grandfather) was at Pearl Harbor when it got bombed and survived until he was very old. My father also served in the miliary as part of the National Guard. Thank you for all miliary service to all around the world who protect their nations.

  • I’m not related to any military personnel but I do have lots of respect to the men & women who guard the borders of our countries.
    They survive harsh terrain, suffer huge mental stress, are paid less but still do it with huge pride.
    HatsOff!
