Although I'm an artist, I am surrounded by mathematical minds. Perhaps those mathematical minds were influential in the creation of Equation.
Somewhere around third or fourth grade our kids went from asking me to help them with homework to asking Dad for help. He's the mathematical mind in our house.
In my defense, I did take Geometry my freshman year of high school, and Algebra 3-4 my sophomore year. After that though, math, well, it wasn't my focus. It is however integral to every part of our lives. Even those of us who majored in graphic design use it every day in some way.
Who's the mathematical mind in your home? Is it you? Your child? Your spouse? A close friend?
If your child is good at math, then Equation will be a great greeting card for you to send them and encourage them while they are at boot camp. Whether you're mathematical or not, word pictures communicate. We all need a little encouragement when in the middle of a new and difficult situation. We all need reminding that it's worth toughing it out!
Equation helps you express the pride and admiration you feel watching your child embark on the new and unknown territory of boot camp! You know that the things they learn at boot camp will help them throughout not only their Naval career, but also beyond that.
Equation gives moms and dads, aunts and uncles, siblings and friends (basically everyone in the inner circle) of the Sailor a way to express encouragement to hang in there in the eye of the storm. It will be meaningful for both giver and receiver to write and read words of encouragement about how useful difficult times can be.
No one likes to go without sleep. No one likes to be yelled at. No one likes it when time seems to drag on. But, if we've lived at all, we know that it's these very things that help us mature and grow stronger as individuals. It's why boot camp is intentionally intense.
You never know, your Sailor may hold onto this card for a long time. Maybe even beyond their time of service. Your personal sentiments scribed inside may help carry them through a future difficult training, deployment, station or specific duty. They will without doubt face sleep deprivation and intense training again. Deployments are usually longer than eight weeks. In hindsight it won't look nearly so traumatic.
2MyHero offers military, and military only, greeting cards that express admiration, gratitude and encouragement to USN Sailors. These are not your ordinary military greeting cards. Not only are they licensed with the USN, USMC, USAF, and USCG, but they also communicate in a way that is fresh and relevant.
2MyHero prides itself on creatively reaching beyond the typical imagery found on greeting cards for military. We want to express a depth of feeling and connection that will help bridge the gap between those of us who are civilians to the men and women we love who are or were at one time in military service.
Equation is a greeting card that the receiver will want to keep and tuck in their hooch for those times when life in the Navy is tough and they could use a little "pick me up". It fosters the kind of connection we hope every military greeting card we create will develop in both the giver and receiver of 2MyHero cards.
