August celebrates National Heroes Day, a day commemorating the bravery and heroism of everyone who fought and died for the country’s freedom. But this day can also celebrate the personal hero in your life. Here are 7 ways you can honor your hero.
1. Donate to their cause
If a hero of yours is making a positive impact in the world through a charity, one of the best ways to honor them is to donate to their cause.
No matter how small, you can already help them towards achieving their goals in helping others. Don’t want to donate money? Volunteer or raise awareness of the charity so that more people can choose to get involved in the same cause as your personal hero.
2. Write a letter
We may have emails and text messages, but there’s nothing more sincere than a handwritten letter to the person who changed your life. Letter writing can sometimes help you articulate your thoughts better than talking, and the effort you put into writing that letter will make everything more special.
3. Cook their favorite meal
Food is one of the simplest yet most meaningful love languages in the world. To honor your personal hero, why not cook their favorite food? You’ll find a lot of great recipes that are easy to make yet deliciously good.

4. Spend quality time with them
If your hero is a family member or friend, this is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with them. We’ve all been feeling the stress of quarantine, so why not use this special day to go on a hike or picnic nearby?
Don’t forget to bring a Thermos® Tumbler to keep yourself hydrated and the Thermos® Lunch Tote to keep your food fresh.
5. Surprise them with a gift

With a wide range of Thermos® products to choose from, you can guarantee that you can find one that suits their lifestyle and habits. Present your gift with a note of gratitude to show them what they mean to you.
6. Send a Thank You card
If your hero is a team of frontline workers, or just someone out there making a powerful impact on the world, send a thank you card with a little gift to make them feel special. This simple gesture can already inspire your hero to work harder knowing that their efforts are appreciated.
7. Make a photo album
A special thing you can do for the hero in your life is to create a photo album with all your memories and experiences together.
Whether it’s a family member, friend, colleague or just someone you look up to, having a photo album is a great way to remind that hero of the impact that they have had in your life and how grateful you are for having them as your hero.
