For Veterans Day, Paper & Chocolate, a stationery and chocolate store in Inwood Village, is giving away 3,000 thank you cards. Visit the store by Nov. 14, sign a card and add a special note of gratitude for their service and the cards will be sent to active duty soldiers based in Fort Hood.
One of those three cards, shown above, was created by local gay graphic designer Jason McDaniel with Missing Q. Press.
His card features words from “America the Beautiful” by lesbian writer Katharine Lee Bates.
McDaniel’s partner, John Shore, assures that the connection between Bates and our community was unintentional. But it does emphasize what an integral part of our nation’s history we are. Shore also said that McDaniel was not making a political statement by contributing his design. He simply wanted to add his thanks to those who serve our country.
Paper & Chocolate, Inwood Village, 5460 West Lovers Lane, Suite 236, (behind the Inwood Theater). 10 a.m.–6 p.m. Through Nov. 14. 214-357-2737.
