My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Operation Gratitude Inc, Encino, CA, USA
I have watched Operation Gratitude grow from one of Carolyn Blashek's first interviews on TV. I have personally contributed items on the wish lists and have been able to get groups together through my church and other organizations over the years for contributing. Too many people say they are going to do something "someday" -- Op Gratitude has grown and thrived because someone believed that this had to be done NOW........I am a grown-up Air Force brat and am brought to tears over and over again by the stories Op Gratitude shares from the soldiers, and my favorite times are when I know a soldier is going to go open a milestone package. It's hard to put the thanks into words for Ms. Blashek and her believing that this could be done..........all the littles do come together to make a BIG difference!!! And once again.......proof-positive that the USA colors never run!!!!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Personal donations, getting friends, co-workers and members of my church to donate wish list items. I have also made some personal monetary contributions.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
No changes needed.
