Thanking Our Military with #thankvets

Following the great Spring Lake Park Innovation Night, Chris Balmer, an awesome Flipgrid user and Learning Ventures Manager at Woodcrest Spanish Immersion, sparked an exciting idea. A week out from Armed Forces Day (May 21st), Chris decided to use Flipgrid to thank our military.

Using #thankvets, Chris had his students share why they’re thankful for our veterans. He then shared the link and encouraged people to not only watch the current videos, but also add their own. The grid quickly gained attention and Chris kept the grid active as we approached Memorial Day.

The local NBC station, Kare11, caught wind of the project and broadcast a special segment on Saturday, May 28. Today, #thankvets has over 200 videos and 6,000 views!

Fantastic idea, Chris, we’re honored Flipgrid could help students thank our military!
