Operation: Hi Mom: Free 16×20 canvas for Mom’s of Deployed Troops - www.canvasondemand.com/himom/

We appreciate our trooops! That's why we started Operation: Hi Mom, a program that gives hundreds of our deployed military men and women a free fine-art canvas that will be presented to their moms on Mother's Day. The beautiful 16"x20" Pixel Painting canvas, created from a favorite photo, has the look and feel of a traditional custom painting. It is a personalized keepsake that mom will hang in a place of honor and cherish forever.
