Veterans Spread Holiday Cheer to Lonely Veterans

Want to spread some cheer to a fellow Veteran this holiday season? Send a creative note to your Veteran peers!

Created by Veterans, for Veterans, the Challenge America Veteran Arts Community (CAVARTS) is a national hub that brings together Veterans of various backgrounds who support one another as they connect, learn and grow through the Arts.

While the holiday season is meant to be a time for family and friends to gather and remind each other what it means to be loved, it can be an especially lonely time of year for those who feel isolated, made worse by the ongoing pandemic. Far too many Veterans in our community are experiencing this sense of isolation and loneliness right now.

Join us in supporting these Veterans through the power of community. If you are a Veteran or service member, sign up for the Challenge America Holiday Outreach Campaign. It could be a letter, poem, drawing, painting or something else. Create a meaningful connection, show that you care, and maybe even make a friend for life.

To learn more and to register for the Challenge America Holiday Outreach Campaign, go to and click “request to join.” Membership is free and exclusive to Veterans and service members.

Once you join the community, you will find more information on how to sign up, as well as a space designed to bring Veterans together around a shared interest in the creative arts and crafts. You do not need to be an artist to join, but you do need to be a Veteran or service member.

Once you’ve registered, a member of the Challenge America team will reach out and pair you with another Veteran for the holidays. You’ll have the opportunity to connect through our private platform, get to know each other, and get to creating something special.

The deadline to register is December 1.

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with another Veteran during one of the most special times of the year.
