|For those injured in battle|
The goal is to broaden public recognition of the folks who protect all of us, whether they be military, police, firefighters, first responders, paramedics, EMTs, nurses, doctors, teachers, or simply Dads and Moms.
It's important in today's world to remember that we are both protected and served by many people in our world, and it's important to thank them as often as we can. A handshake offered in thanks is a warm way to recognize their service, their bravery, their courage, stamina and integrity. Without them, each of us would be less sure of ourselves.

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” Mr. Rogers himself was a helper to so many youngsters, stepping in to fill the shoes of wise, kind adults who helped him in his youth.

Visit the webstore and look for the new category of gifts being offered: they are delicately scrolled works of art that are made with care, appreciation and dedication to our heroes, whomever they may be. Think of those to whom you feel you owe a gift of gratitude, a measure of respect, and or an appreciation of protection and shared strength.
If you don't see what you're looking for, let us know. Rick uses his own creativity for some work, and also uses patterns created by the scroll saw designer, Sue May. His work, and her ideas, are all products made in the U.S.A.
