Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The US Military is deploying more troops of all branches to war zones in Middle East, Africa, South Korea and many areas that are not in play have potential for sudden break out of war. Our troops are having to go on multiple deployments and that is very stressful on our men and women in harms way. We try to distract them from the fog of war by sending them care packages that have premium products such as snacks, toiletries, DVDs, music, cards and letters from the USA! These things help to lift their spirits and encourage them to fight on for America and the care packages also let them know we honor and appreciate that they stand for America.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

We send military care packages to deployed troops

Our program involves shipping military care packages to deployed troops in combat zones around the world. Countries like Kuwait Jordan Iraq, Syria, North Africa, South Korea, the Mediterranean Sea, the Sea of Japan, Afghanistan and other undisclosed locations of covert operations.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to address the stress the troops have to endure in war. Provide a diversion from a stressful day. Give our soldiers some tangible items such as an I Honor Challenge Coin, reading materials, DVDs, Honor Bracelet, games, premium coffee, cards and letters from state side I Honor Your Service To America T-Shirt and more.

Develop good fund raising techniques so we can provide more care packages for our troops.

We will meet our goal of 128 care packages in October. Then we will prepare to send holiday care packages from November to Christmas.

Once we meet this years goals and holiday shipping, we will be planing next years goals and reviewing lessons learned on shipping processes and funding strategies.

    COVID-19 has caused us to make many changes to keep serving our heroes deployed around the world. Everything we do to support our troops. For example, in March 2020, we had to get everything shipped in or picked up at COSTCO, Sams, the Dollar Store, and AmazonSmiles. Plus, we started sending masks in the care packages as well. Instead of taking the care packages to the Post Office, We had the Post person pick them up at the door. Our donations did not drop off but increased. We reached a milestone of 1000 care packages sent in 2012. Many of the units we served had a drop in support from home and family because of the lockdown, loss of life, and work stateside loss.
