HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
August 13, 2014

The Gals in my unit were thrilled anytime we got a box from TheHugsProject. We never knew what to expect inside. They sent lots of great food, letters, fun stuff, toe nail polish ( yes, we had some ladies in our group and it's fun to please the girls), games, DVD's, socks, hair gel, etc.

We were never more excited than when we got a HUGS box. keep up the good work. We're not all home yet.

HUGS PROJECT INCORPORATED
October 3, 2009

I just want to say THANK YOU to The Hugs Project for making meknow that someone back home loves me and respects the job I've been called upon to do for my county. They couldn't have a higher rating in my book. Is 5 as high as I can go? I want rate them even higher than that. How about a 100 plus? Can I do that? LCpl Justin Manford USMC currently deployed

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

lifting the spirits of THOUSAND of American troops who serve in the Middle East. When we say thank you, they reply, "No need, it's just our thanks to you". They call us heroes but THEY are the heroes. We couldn't do the job 'over there' without them.

More feedback

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

being able to share all my boxes with my buddies. When I tell them someone isn't getting any support from his own family, they adopt him out and he doesn't feel alone after that.

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

well, I've never met any of them - we're total strangers and isn't that an amazing thing? I am blown away that they want to help people they will never meet.

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

continue save the lives of America's military force by continuing to provide thousands of cooling ties (they call them 'hugs') that reduce body core temps by 5+ degrees. No one need die of heat stroke.
