This is the best organization that I have worked with because the volunteers are so dedicated towards their cause. I don't think any money goes to "administrative costs" because all the volunteers reach deep into their pockets to pay for their high costs. The military are experiencing reduced supplies and they really deserve so very much. I pray for the service members who are so appreciative of their Hugs boxes and I hope they return safe. I am very grateful to the Hugs group for what they do.

I learned about The Hugs Project years ago online. I've done what I can to support through fabric donations and money when I can. This year I had a high school classmate deployed overseas. I sent this group of people the name and address for my friend. Before I could blink they sent him a care package. My friend was touched by the kindness of strangers. I can't speak highly enough of The Hugs Project!

The HUGS Project provides a service to our fighting men that can't always be known to those within the program and those that receive the packages. I provide dollars and goods to the project and I know that when a soldier receives a package his/her heart and spirit is raised to a new level.

HUGS is the best that I have seen for a nonprofit org doing service for our troops. The greatest thing I personaaly admire is that when one submits a soldiers name they ship a package. The next best is the receivers are so proud to receive not only the goodies but also the personal items. HUGS could not do it a\ny better.

I support The Hugs Project because I support our troops. Hugs people do a great job of boosting their morale. My son's in the military and has received care packages from the group. It has meant a lot to him that someone cared enough to make or gather so many thoughtful items and send as a gift from home.

Several handmade items are adapted to fit the special circumstances of combat troops. For example, board games are made of fabric to be light and easily transported. The cooling neckties make life a little more bearable in the desert, and they have been known to actually save lives.

Just a great organization.

I have been a member of The Hugs Project Oklahoma City for the past few years. Due to health problems, I have not been able to participate except through donations of fabric to make Cool Ties (Hugs) and other items to put in the Care Packages to send to our Military men and women. When I had family members serving overseas, The Hugs Project made sure they received a Care Package. They work very hard and are very dedicated to our Military men and women.

Although I am not physically able to volunteer at The Hugs Project, my Mother and I donate fabric to this organization. I have also gotten donations of tooth brushes, tooth paste and dental floss from my dentist. I have family members who have donated their time. My daughter is an Extreme Couponer and has donated hygiene items, non-perishable food items. Our family LOVES our military men and women and The Hugs Project is a remarkable organization. God Bless America and this organization for their hard work.

The Great!

The only change I could think of is that we have more funding to help supply the items this organization needs to send to our military men and women.

I cannot thank The Hugs Project enough for all they do for our Troops! They are right there supporting every request they receive of a need for our Troops. I have submitted several names to them of friends in Iraq to include for my sister and The Hugs Project put them on their care package mailing list and sent them wonderful, wonderful packages! They cannot do enough for our Troops no matter what! It's not a job to them, it's Tender Loving Care for those we love who are in harm's way! I salute The Hugs Project!

The Great!

The Hugs Project provides such needed supplies to our troops overseas but they provide much more than that. They send a message to our troops that we support them and recognize their sacrifices and efforts. The soldiers leave their loved ones, their homes and sometimes their jobs to fight for what we believe in. They need to know we care. I began supporting this project because my husband's son was killed in Iraq and we wanted the troops to know that people here understand their sacrifice, sometimes with their life.

The Great!

The Hugs Project sent a care package to a marine that I sent them his information. HIs mother is a very good friend of mine and she said he was amazed at the quantity of items he received. He was able to share these items with his team.

This organization functions on volunteers and donations and somehow pulls it all together working tirelessly. I wish they could find a permanent income source so they could concentrate more on supporting the troops than trying to find money.

I donate to this program because the money goes where they say it does. I have been there once and witnessed the dedication of the volunteers. Their untiring devotion to our servicemen and women serving in harms way is amazing. Then my son was deployed, they sent him a care package to share with his unit. Upon my son's second deployment the first thing he asked for was some hugs for his men. They provide much needed relief in a serious area of the world. Then when my son's unit was hit with several injuries, they sent another package with some cheer items. These men and women serve our military in a great unselfish act of kindness providing needed relief from the heat and a taste of home which keeps their moral up, which is vital to their survival.

The Great!

If I had to make changes I would get people off their butt and make them realize we are still in 2 wars and are children, husbands, brothers, sisters, are still in harms way and there are simple ways they can help an organization like this thrive and in turn serve from the home front.

These are some of the most dedicated people I have ever met. They go full tilt almost all the time to make sure that their mission to support our troops is carried out. Sometime I have wondered if the Starks and their workers ever sleep. Still, when you visit their 'command post' at Crossroads Mall, everyone is so pleasant and helpful and besides the cool tie (HUGS) and goodies they put in those boxes, you can always get the other kind of HUGS too. This is just a great group working hard for a great cause! Jingles

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They always find a way to do what they say they are going to do.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

gracious and apprecative, happy and helpful no matter how busy they are.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

work even greater miracles than they do with little or almost nothing! Even if they did have $10 million to 'play' with, I bet none of them would want to be paid for what they do. It would all go to support the troops!

Ways to make it better...

if I had the time and energy to do more for The Hugs Project.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

They have been at this for like at least 6 years. I just hope they don't wear themselves out before it is over.

My late wife, Marlene, heard about The Hugs Project and quickly immersed herself in creating HUGS neck coolers and other useful articles. She worked by herself in Tulsa, buying all the needed materials in bulk and every month or two, we would jointly pack and ship boxes to our valiant and dedicated troops overseas. Being a Vietnam Vet, I wanted to help and Marlene had incredible talents - so we made a good volunteer group!! We got addresses from Karen and occassionally received warm thank you notes from serviceman. One I got 2 weeks after her untimely death. Shortly thereafter I was able to give all the supplies Marlene had accumulated for future HUGS shipments, also had a garage sale and donated the funds to HUGS. It is an awesome group with tiny overhead and lots of dedicated volunteers.
