The red poppy is an internationally recognized symbol of remembrance for veteran sacrifice.
Each seed packet sparks awareness and conversation about the WW1 Centennial as it honors the legacy of the 4.7 million American veterans that served during World War I.

These seed packets would be great to include in your Christmas cards this year and the funds will help build the National WW1 Memorial at Pershing Park in Washington DC.
If you act NOW your donation is worth twice as much because the Pritzker Military Museum and Library will match your donation!

Thank you Rosemary! What a wonderful idea! I ordered 8 packages of 60 packets. I will put one in each Christmas card next year!

I owe to you that great idea! And red poppies will grace the landscape all over the place in honor of the soldiers who lost their lives for us!

Thank you so much!

Just saw this post. Opened in 1921, the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City, MO was dedicated to honor WWI dead. The WWI Museum and Memorial received a designation in 2004, and a second designation from Congress in 2014, recognizing it as the National WWI Museum and Memorial. It is fabulous. If you are in the area it is well worth the stop. There is a glass floor over a field of 9,000 silk poppies representing the 9 million service members killed in the war.
