Public Awareness Officer with the War Amps, Jamie Lunn says that the key tags can be connected to any sort of key. Lunn says the tags are effective because they can be mailed for free if they get lost.

She adds that the War Amps who is not publicly funding will received donations from people who have their keys returned.
