MAF sent me a care package on deployment from a family member who gave them my name and address. Not only did they send it to me but they asked if they could send more and we have a lot of other Sailors on board that are expecting care packages now. I deeply appreciate the volunteers at MAF and I appreciate their hospitality. Thank you all!
I very much support the military which is why I was disappointed that 21 care packages sent with messages and email addresses by my 3 grandchildren did not result in any replies. It was my hope that a thank-you from an unknown soldier or marine in a far away part of the world would illustrate to my grandchildren how appreciated their gifts were.
Unfortunately, this makes me wonder where the care packages went.
Move America Forward is doing a wonderful good deed for our service men and women and I can't express how much this means to me as a donor. These young men and women are putting their lives on the line for us in miserable conditions and yet, they don't have the bare essentials of hygiene and personal care.
The packages sent over to them are the very least we, as those being protected, can do to make their lives just a little bit more comfortable. I urge everyone to get involved in this program to send care packages of food and essential hygiene items to these wonderful people.
Do it right now while you're on the page, it will mean so much for such a small contribution on your part. God Bless America! and God Bless Our Armed Forces!
I love supporting our troops through Move America Forward because I know how much they look forward to being able to enjoy some of the foods, etc. that come from "home." These are our finest young men and women, who are putting everything on the line for us, so we can enjoy the tranquility of our home front. The endure so much hardship, it's the very least we can do to try and bring a little bit of comfort into their lives.
Give your best to them.
This organization is very supportive to our troops overseas; they sponsor care packages from donors to troops stationed in Afghanistan and Iraq year-round. I have received several thank you notes from our soldiers for the packages I have sent, and it means the world to me. This is a very worthy organization whose concern, first and foremost, is our military. They also sponsor trips for Gold Star Parents to Iraq. I am happy to contribute and be a part of making the lives of our brave men and women a little easier.
Great organization!, very supportive to the troops on the frontlines in supplying great care packages, so much good stuff in them, that would put a big smile to them after a long day or night fighting for our country. I am humbled to be a part of this effort. They even have a K-9 care package!! If you call they are not pushy only helpful. Mary
Move America Forward sent me a care package and I cannot begin to express my sincere thanks. Being at a bare base with very few options at the on base exchange results in a lack of the essential items needed for daily life/hygiene. Move America Forward brought me joy and thankfulness during my time down range. Thank you to those who support us over here. This mission is not an easy one but with continued help and support it helps us remember we are loved and appreciated. Thank you.
Move America Forward does great work. I drop off letters to have included in the care packages monthly. It is always interesting to see all of the needed things they are including in the boxes. The piles of boxes ready to be shipped or waiting to be packed is always impressive. I am glad to donate toward the shipping of the boxes and am always happy to see the photos of the troops who receive the care packages.
My place of employment ran an event to encourage people to write letters to our active duty service members. I delivered the letters to the Move America Forward office to ensure they would get to the soldiers and received a tour of the offices and more information on how they collect items and ship them. This is a great organization run by people who are passionate about what they do. I know it costs somewhere around $14 to ship each care package, and while I wish I could do more I am grateful to chip in enough for at least one. Keep up the good work!
My men spent the holidays in Afghanistan this year. Spirits were a little low considering we were far from family and home. The package we received from Move America Forward was a much needed boost that helped us soldier on this winter. Thanks so much Move America Forward!
We were looking for a way to show our appreciation and respect to the many military personnel who protect us and our freedoms on a daily basis. We strongly feel that each of these men & women deserve much better treatment from the VA and the gov't upon their return. We're poor, but decided to do as much as we can for these heroes. Move America Forward let us donate $50 in two installments. We only wish we could write a heartfelt letter to these brave defenders of freedom to express our sincere gratitude. Anyway, Move America Forward made it very easy for us to contribute in the best way we could. Their site is user-friendly and 88 cents of every dollar goes directly to the troops! Next time, we hope to visit the site early enough to help with the packaging so we can include a letter of gratitude for all they do and sacrifice for us. We strongly urge everyone who has the means to help in some way. Thank you!
I enjoyed all the photos of our men and women in the service of our great country The faces of the dedicated volunteers of all ages and the site in general Your all doing a great service

support our brave men and women by sending as many packages as we can not just
Christmas So lets all make a difference and donate today Thank you
