The War Amps key tags will be finding their way into your mailboxes soon, if they’re not already there. The tags, a fixture on key chains for the last 71 years have been sent in the mail to people across Canada. The tags, allow lost keys to find their owners, and also result in donations to the War Amps.
James Jordan, safety events coordinator for War Amps says that over the last 71 years, this program has been able to return 1.5 million sets of keys. Jordan says this is becoming more useful, given the rising costs for expensive key FOBS and electronic car keys. The campaign also helps raise money for children who are amputees:
90% of the donations made to the War Amps goes directly to helping amputees receive new limbs. Jordan encourages people to check the mail and to put the news tags on their key chains.
