Our efforts supporting military & their families started in April 2007 with the Facebook group "Tim Hortons For Our Troops" a mission which started as sending coffee certificates to Canadian soldiers with messages of gratitude on the back of them. In the first year we sent over $100,000 worth of free coffee to deployed soldiers.
In March 2010 we launched "The Gratitude Project" which was our most successful project to date. People from all over the world submitted photos holding messages of thanks to our troops and we received enough to release ten YouTube videos. With this project we received photos also from Gene Simmons, Shannon Tweed, Trooper & Jason McCoy.

The Soldier: - By Charles M. Province
It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
If you can read this message thank a teacher,
If you are reading it in English of your own free will THANK A SOLDIER!
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
who allows the protester to burn the flag.
To all the brave men and women who have dedicated or given their lives
to protecting this country and it's freedoms:
