THANK YOU – THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION’S MOVEMENT
WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
100 years ago the guns fell silent on the world’s first truly global war. The example and experience of those who lived through it shaped the world we live in today. In 2018 we will say ‘Thank You’ to that generation. We will stand together to celebrate the legacy they gave us and the values they lived. We will thank nurses and soldiers, factory workers and porters. We will thank the people of all nations - not just those who fell on the battlefields, but those who played their part on the home front and those who returned to build a better future for generations to come. On this, the 100thanniversary of the end of fighting, we will say ‘Thank You’ so that the legacy, sacrifice and values of a generation are never forgotten.
In 2018, join us in saying thank you.
IN A NUTSHELL?
“Thank You - to all who served, sacrificed, and changed our world.”
HOW’S IT WORK?
There are so many ways the generation which fought for victory also fought for a better world – rights and freedoms were gained for women, nations, and workers; there were advances in medicine and manufacturing and an explosion in arts and letters. Society was forever changed, and we’re asking people today – as individuals, workmates, schools, community groups, sports clubs – to joining us in saying thank you to that generation as we bid adieu to the Centenary.
WHAT DO I DO?
Join the movement. Get involved. Say thank you on your own, or with others. You can share your story on our social media hub; hold a bake sale, community bike ride, or sponsored sports event; have a service at your church, temple, mosque, or synagogue; if you’re a young person, express yourself in poetry, art or song and enter our national competition. Visit rbl.org/ThankYou for more details and inspiration – and don’t forget to tell us what you’re doing and to register to use the Thank You logo.
WHO CAN JOIN?
Anyone, anywhere, anytime. We’ve already signed up names big and small who have heard about Thank You and want to be a part of it all – high street retailers, diversity communities, footballers, and authors. We welcome one and all.
WHEN IS IT?
You can say Thank You any time this year in the lead up 11 November 2018
