When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?
I am a Wildland FireFighter, I too got stuck out in the middle of nowhere sometimes for up to a month. I know what it is like to be without. I started thinking about our troops stuck out there for years! I felt it was the least I could do to help a few soldiers. I respect their efforts and sacrifices. Unless you have had a job where you have no access to showers, water, hot food or a bed for days and weeks on end, you just don't understand.
Why did you make your donation at this time?
I started at Christmas time, the season for giving. I contacted a fellow FireFighter who had returned from Iraq and asked about charities that he felt really made a difference on his tour.
What would you tell others about this organization?
It is a worthwhile organization. They do not require you make a donation to them in order to send a package to your chosen Soldier. I did not make a donation the first time I shipped but I certainly do now. Once I received the thank you letters from the soldiers I was assured this was a trustworthy way to help our troops.
