State President Tyler Langley

Celebrating 125 years of the
Children of 
the American Revolution

Unprecedented times call for out-of-the-box thinking and creativity in service to our country. As a result, Washington State C.A.R. president, Tyler Langley, has chosen a two-fold project for his state project. This project serves children, dogs, and veterans.

The Children of the American Revolution has teamed up with the Daughters of the American Revolution to make masks specifically designed for children. The goal is to make children feel safe, be prepared when it is time to return to school, and have their spirits lifted by whimsical, kid-friendly print fabric masks. As this is the 125th year of the C.A.R., we are hoping to contribute 125 masks for kids from Washington state.

The second part of the state project ties into the National C.A.R. project, Pets4Vets. C.A.R. members are encouraged to make braided dog toys out of old t-shirts to donate to animal shelters and service animal organizations across Washington State.  

Many of our C.A.R. members are young and/or do not know how to sew yet. This is a simple project that kids of almost any age can complete with minimal supervision.

Ways to help:

  • Help members sew masks remotely (click here for Masks for Kids instructions)
  • Donate kid-friendly fabric or elastic
  • Monetary donation for members to purchase kid-friendly fabric and elastic for masks
  • Donate used t-shirts to be repurposed and made into braided dog toys
  • Help make braided dog toys to donate (click here for easy directions)
