I have had the best experience and it really matters as to how much you put into it yourself . Homefront Hugs reminds you that there are many ways to help no matter what you believe or your politics and everyone is included . There are several people who are upset because they could not choose the religion of their soldier or did not like the inclusive nature .
No one makes a penny . They are the real deal and took a break from their 501-3c because they needed one to mourn several losses in their family . They should have it by early 2017.
But don't donate for postage or to help if it bothers you - look at all the ridiculous salaries though at other charities and overhead .
This military family has no overhead - pays for supplies and overhead themselves and really cares . They brag about us as volunteers when they do so much themselves when no one helps when it's not the holidays . We have adopted 4x and love their work . We are friends still with some of our troops and it made our kids feel great giving back ! Remember the reason for the season and know this is a homegrown real org that is the real deal - supporting our troops,military families and wounded vets and every community with needs so you can give back helping anywhere as a teen and still be called a Homefront Hugs volunteer as long as you are giving thanks for your freedoms .
Check out their Kids Page or Operations healing Angel !
And the CEO is so accessible - when does that happen these days ?! She does all the assignments herself and emails due to security and once she can hire staff she gets a break . She is disabled herself but hardly talks about it . I love Homefront Hugs! We need to unite more and stop all the complaining ...life is too short !
Email her President@HomefrontHugs.org

This organization is poorly organized. If you sign up to sponsor a soldier, you are given terms of commitment. The organization bears none. They get to applications on their own schedule and expect that you begin your sponsorship as soon as they ask. The communications are mainly pleas for donations because they will be short in meeting their numbers. The communications state that no salaries are given and yet lacking any financial transparency there is no accountability for the funds that have been donated.. You will just have to take their word for it. At one point, the organization was running a dual donation drive to include a moving and other expenses for the headquarters which also happened to be the directors home. Financial conflict of interest.

I am a military spouse who can tell you that they are applying again for their non-profit now after taking time to deal with a tragedy and death with their own family veteran . Family first and the son had a very tough time dealing with his father's death . Yet they still continued missions including helping my husband and his whole team while deployed and me and my kids ! For 15 years almost they have been there for others and not making one dime for themselves . That's dedication! That's patriotism. Thank you Homefront Hugs USA . Thank you Alessandra Kellermann and son . You are heroes too . You helped me keep the faith and are always there for anyone in the military hurting .

This "nonprofit" has lost it's non-profit status and failed to even file IRS forms and 990s for many years. DISGRACEFUL!

It says so right on the main page here. But they are still soliciting funds from the public including television stations like CNN! In exchange for promotion.

WHERE ARE THE FINANCIALS OF MONIES SPENT?? THEY ARE NOT ON THEIR WEBSITE.

I spent almost two years overseas. During this time I wanted to find support for the Soldiers in order to boost morale. I found Homefront Hugs online. When I spoke to Allesandra I could hardly believe people like her still existed. Not only did she take care of my Soldiers, she sent items to my son, mom and sister. Families adopted the three and continued to provide support until my return. Homefront Hugs provided an all expense paid trip to New York for my sister to say "thank you" as she was the primary caregiver for my son. I am eternally grateful to the organization, owner and her son.

Homefront Hugs USA Inc. is an outstanding organization for supporting our nation's troops and veterans. The leader of this organization is a former military spouse raising a USAF dependent who lost his father to brain cancer. She founded this organization and has been volunteering her time and efforts for the last 15 years to be an actual DOER of supporting our military veterans and active-duty troops. As a retired senior NCO, I personally donate to this organization and highly recommend you consider partnering with Homefront Hugs USA Inc. so that they can continue their mission of #SOT and #SOV. Thanks for all you do Alessandra and Ed!

My family and I have enjoyed volunteering with Homefront Hugs over the past 8+ years. There are so many different ways to bless service members and show our gratitude for the work they do. Through having the kids help make cards, my older boys helping greet a returning "honor flight" full of WWII veterans, to making donations to help send care packages, there was always a way to help that fit our hectic and busy homeschool lifestyle at the time. We know Alessandra personally, and are so impressed with how all donations go directly to getting the care packages shipped off to various destinations around the world. It is her heart to see that no service member, or their families home-side, feel forgotten, and we are happy to come alongside Alessandra and help with this mission as we are able to.

Homefront Hugs is hands down one the best nonprofit org's I've ever had the pleasure of working with! Their devotion to OUR troops is absolutely unmatched. When an orginazation is failing at their goal I will absolutely review it on social media. This is not the case with Homefront Hugs. I have donated many times to them & will continue to do so! They are angels! Thank you for doing so damn much for our troops Homefront Hugs!

I have been with Homefront Hugs for quite awhile. It has been a life changing experience for me and I have made some lifelong friends. The wonderful lady who runs the organization works tirelessly to make sure that everyone is supported, and she is always available to answer any questions. I believe that working with Homefront Hugs has helped me as much as it has helped the hard working soldiers (and families) that I have supported. This is the least that we can do for the men and women who work so hard and unselfishly for our country. I am sharing a photo of the last family that I sponsored (with their permission, of course) when Dad returned home and surprised them! I plan to stay with Homefront Hugs for a very long time!

I am not a soldier fighting overseas to keep Americans and our allies safe. I am not a wounded warrior in need of support, comfort and healing. But if I was, I would want to know that Homefront Hugs was there for me. In a world suffering from a deficit of kindness, this organization shines as an example of how we should be. I am grateful that Homefront Hugs is there, looking out for our warriors, finding ways to make them feel loved and valued. It makes the world just a little bit better for all of us.
