Community heroes are the people in our neighborhood who embrace and embody community spirit through their involvement in helping those in need and doing their share to make the world a better place. In schools, hospitals, sporting clubs, charities, churches and even on the sidewalks, you will find that passionate community helpers are all around making lives easier, doing their own special thing and supporting their chosen cause. Have a Hero Appreciation Day and show them how grateful you are to have them in your community.
Serving those who serve us doesn’t have to be a big thing. A great yet simple way to recognize their contribution to society is to gift them with custom lanyards. Get them in a range of colors, widths and different kinds of quality materials. Personalized these very useful lanyards and make them something the recipient can use and remember for a long time. Make them handy by placing key rings which can be used to hold pens, glasses, gadgets, badges, keys and other important personal stuff. Here are some great ideas to show love and honor to community heroes in your area
Teachers are very special heroes in the community. They influence minds and hearts, impart knowledge, help children to grow by assisting them to discover and learn new things. They make a big difference people’s lives because they go beyond today and touch the future. Create lanyards that honor teachers with words. Use quotes such as “Discover wildlife: be a teacher!”, “Teaching is the most noble profession”, or “A very special teacher is one who wisely sees tomorrow in the eyes of every child”. They will be inspired all the more to teach and stir the new generation with ideas, wisdom and love.
Doctors and Nurses are ones we do not wish to see quite regularly but we appreciate them for all the help they render in taking care of our health concerns. They take long hours and double shifts, have no breaks, deal with emotional relatives and do all that they can to help ease their patients’ medical conditions. Why not have inspirational quotes from Maya Angelou printed on a lanyard? “Never give up on anybody because miracles happen every day” can surely inspire doctors and nurses to go on when they face difficult cases. Or uplift their spirits with custom lanyards that say, “We love you”, “Nurses are the best”, “We Heart Doctors” or “Nurses: the greatest blessings of humanity”. As they use the lanyards to hold their badges or pens, they will smile every time they see the quotes and you will make their day.
Firefighters, EMTs and paramedics will love using lanyards to hold keys, whistles and small flashlights. Give them lanyards with the following words embossed: “Firefighters are HOT stuff!”, “Firefighters save homes and hearts”, or “Unselfish actions are most radiant and most noble”. They can use lanyards to hold water bottles, penknives, maps and other things they use for their work of saving lives. Likewise, honor the bravery and dedication of soldiers and policemen in your community with custom lanyards engraved with “Love in the line of duty” and “Keepers of peace and order”. Who else are community heroes that you can lookout for and esteem? You have bakers, grocers, street sweepers, garbage collectors, construction workers, mailmen, dentists and even zookeepers who deserve to be valued.
Heroes are special because they make our everyday life a little more special, whether they go beyond the call of duty or are just simply doing their jobs. If you want generic custom lanyards for everyone, “No one is more cherished than he who lightens another’s burden. You are a gift!” could probably be the best quote you stamp on them. If your motive is gratitude and your theme is “Hooray for Heroes”, you can never go wrong in showing your love and appreciation for community helpers.
