Poppy Dangles Hand Painted Wooden Earrings

$35

The red poppy is often worn and used in military remembrances to pay homage to those who supported or fought in wars.

It first became a symbol in WWI when Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, a surgeon who served for an Allied artillery unit during the Second Battle of Ypres. During this Battle, 87,000 soldiers were either killed, wounded, or missing in action. Among the dead was his friend, Lieutenant Alexis Helmer. Colonel McCrae was struck by the sight of red poppies growing through the broken ground, and was inspired to write "In Flanders Field". Since then, the red poppy has become a symbol of remembrance and has been widely used in many countries to remember those who lost their lives.

This memorial day we would like to donate $10 for every pair sold to the Women Veterans of San Antonio, a non-profit veteran organization.

"Our mission is to serve, honor, and empower women Veterans from all eras and branches of service. We accomplish this by providing our women Veterans opportunities to network, socialize, volunteer, and give back to the Veteran community while bringing public awareness to the specific issues of women Veterans." 

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields."
