WAR AMPS ADDRESS LABEL MAILING SHOWS “WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES”

October 17, 2016 - The War Amps 2016 address labels are being mailed to Canadian households starting this week. The theme, “Where Your Money Goes,” shows how the public’s donations to The War Amps help child amputees live full and active lives.

Benjamin, 13, is a left leg amputee and a member of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program. In a letter accompanying the address labels, his parents write about how CHAMP has been there for Benjamin and their family from the start: “CHAMP has been a support line that we could not be without, from the information we receive, to the seminars where we learn from each other, to the amazing financial support for artificial limbs, like Benjamin’s waterproof swim leg…because of The War Amps and your support, all of these things mean that he doesn’t feel left out, or alone in growing up as an amputee,” writes Wanita and Mark.

Sent as a thank you to supporters of The War Amps Key Tag Service, address labels are not just for envelopes! They can be used to identify items like books, and for filling out name and address information on forms.

The War Amps receives no government grants. Its programs are possible through public support of the Key Tag and Address Label Service. For more information, or to order address labels, visit waramps.ca or call toll-free 1 800 250-3030.
