e50k, a not-for-profit social enterprise, has agreed to work with our charity for four years. The enterprise will include a copy of our Little Troopers Gazette in their welcome boxes again this year. E50k works with Amey Defence Services to place a beautiful welcome box into every new home* for military families.
Louise, our charity founder, said “It is so great to be working with e50k again this year. I am so proud of the Little Troopers Gazette. This initiative helps us distribute even more copies and ensures that military families get to know about our work.”
This year the Move you in Boxes will include a design from their ‘Doodle outside your Door’ competition. Melody Maxted, community champion for e50k said, “e50K are a collective of military spouses, therefore we personally understand the toll frequent home moves puts on our children. Friendships, schools and stability to name but a few, are constant stress factors for both us and our young ones. Doodling is extraordinarily beneficial for children to develop their confidence and self-worth?” We cannot wait to see the winning design.
To help develop self-worth and combat these stresses, e50k is holding a doodling contest for children of all ages; Explore nature surrounding your home and let your child doodle their finds for the chance to win a creative doodling pack and their design printed on e50K’s regional MYIP box 2023. Please leave the doodle uncoloured so future children of the MYIP can unleash their personal creativity with the winning designs.
You can email your design to [email protected]. The closing date is the 15th February 2023 9:00am. You will receive your FREE Positive Affirmation Through Doodling Guide upon entry.
The Little Troopers Gazette will be joined in the box by products have been sourced from eco-friendly, sustainable and small businesses with links to the Armed Forces.
The next issue of our Gazette will come out in March. There is still time for your little trooper to become a budding reporter. The beauty of this unique newspaper is that lots of the content is written by little troopers for little troopers. We have lots of story templates and help to inspire your children. They could interview their military grandparents, tell us about where they live or their favourite sport. Take a look at our full writing support pack here.
