Make a Soldier Smile

Powtoon has a great way to honor our fallen heroes and veterans this Memorial Day by reaching out to those who continue to serve and protect our country!

SmileThey are calling on teachers, students, military family, friends, and anyone else who would like to salute our men and women in uniform (past & present) to create and send a personal video message to a veteran or soldier stationed abroad.

This takes less than 5 minutes.

  1. Select one of their special templates. Templates are available for teachers/students as well as family/friends.
  2. You do need to log in to Powtoon but if you already have a Google account, you can sign in with Google.
  3. Edit the scenes of the template as you wish.

  1. Save and click the Share button. You will be walked through the publishing process.
  2. Get the URL to the video and email it, post to social media, embed on a school website, etc.

Here is one I made in just a couple of minutes.


Also, if you know someone in the military who could help Powtoon spread this to more soldiers they would love to hear from you. You can email Ari at and they will follow up with you asap!
