Hello : )I just wanted to say thank you very, very much for the care package that I received! It was full of delicious and useful items. I am stationed in Afghanistan and it is very dry here and the water is not being kind to me and many of my fellow deployed Airmen. The inspirational booklet from guideposts and the notes from the wonderful people who helped put my care package together mean so much that I cannot find the words to express my gratitude ! : ) May God bless all of you.Thank you,MSgt D.C
Let's admit it -- not many of us are qualified to be "warriors." I appreciate those men & women who are willing to serve in the US military. My hope & prayer is that they have all the support they need to get-the-job-done & that they will come home unscathed in body & mind, so they can enjoy the American way of life they have defended. When I send a "care package" to a warrior, it is a small thing to do to express my appreciation -- especially since Move America Forward does the actual work. All I have to do is stretch my budget a bit to make a contribution toward goods and/or postage. Thanks, Move America Forward -- you are good people!
Every year -- especially at Christmas -- I think about how great it would be to participate in getting "care packages" delivered to our troops who are serving on duty away from home. Recently, I heard "Troopathon.org" mentioned by a respected radio host. I wasn't familiar with that organization, but I searched on-line and discovered "Move America Forward." I am so glad I found them! Navigating their website was easy, and though I am not a wealthy person, I found a level of contribution I could afford. It gives me great pleasure to fund a care package that others will assemble and deliver. The website provides much information -- even listing possible items that will be included in the care packages. I am thankful for everyone at Move America Forward, who makes it possible for me to participate in such a worthy cause.

The question should be: Why wouldn't any patriotic American support the troops and their canine co-warriors? You folks provide that extra comfort that our underpaid troops should be receiving from the government=American taxpayers instead of funding illegal immigrants and terrorist refugees. My father served aboard a carrier in the Pacific Theater during WW II. I fully support our military including the canines who sacrifice so much to keep our Republic safe. G-d bless them and their families and your non-profit for your service and sacrifice.
I hope this charity is not a scam. I always worry about that.
If it is straight it looks like a great idea. I have given to it a couple times before.
My God Bless all involved and particularly the solders!
This is an awesome way to show our concern for soldiers that are lonely on the battlefields.
Please help out, contribute!
Hello, We just wanted to thank you for all the care packages that were sent to my Troops. We appreciate every item in the boxes that were sent. The Soldiers were really happy to receive the Care packages! Thank you!
Great way to let our troops know that they're not forgotten. Supported and sponsored by great Americans.
This is in response to the donor writer who gave this organization a bad review on 2/5/17.
Have you thought maybe there are circumstances for you not getting a reply. Maybe they do not have Internet access, maybe the letters got separated, or maybe they just didn't thank you.
Maybe instead of complaining, you should teach your grand children that sometimes you do charity work without getting a thank you. Isn't that what it is all about? Selfless service? If you are only doing this for a thank you and you give a great organization a poor review just because you want a pat on the pack, you might need to rethink what true service is and should be grateful to our troops who put their lives on the line everyday for everyone.
Thank you very much for the care package! It means a lot that people care for what we do. It's not easy being away from home, but you outta smile on my face when I opened the box! The coffee will definitely come in handy for the long days/nights. I appreciate your support, and I'm glad to defend this great Nation. HOOAH
Thank you so much for the care package!
My team shared all the goodies and was very surprised at how new stuff were!!
Great choice of snacks and items!!!
Thank you Move America Forward for making my husband feel close to "home" as possible with your support! We appreciate all your help and I want to thank you again for thinking of him. He loves the care packages!! Thank you!!
I have happily donated to Move America Forward when ever possible knowing that even my small contribution would go to the troops and not an "administrator".
I really enjoy this organization. My family and I love to support the troops overseas and this is a great way to do it.
Received a package recently and I am grateful beyond words. Some people have forgotten that there are many people still deployed in harms way and sometimes don't care the stuff they need or would like. Thank you for the wonderful package. The soldiers here greatly appreciate the time and effort that all have put into these packages. Thank you
Please let us know if we can send more! Thank you so much for all that you do, you guys are always in our thoughts and prayers!

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.
Dear Writer, Give it more time, more often than not these messages come later than you think! I am very sorry to hear about your disappointment. Although we can not force anyone to respond back we are more than happy to share message we do receive with you! All of our packages go downrange to deployed troops serving overseas. If you have any questions or would like to arrange to get your grand kids some messages just let me know.

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!
Thank you so much for supporting our troops! Nothing would be possible without your support! THANKYOU!
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.
There is nothing better than the taste of home while you are so far away from it! Thank you for all that you do to support the troops!
Can't say enough good things about this organization for their support of our deployed troops.
Thanks Joseph! We couldn't do anything with our the tremendous support we get from you and other supporters! Thank you for making this all possible!
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.
That is so great to hear! We love to see the messages you received if you are willing to share them with our other supporters! Please let me know! AND BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT YOU DO FOR OUT TROOPS!

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
HI Mary, This is Scott over at MAF. I am glad we were not pushy, but I wanted to make sure to tell you how much we appreciate your support! THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING THE TROOPS!
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.
Let us know if we can send more to you! Please just email me and we will get it set up! VR/ Scott Raab USN OEF/OIF Outreach Director | Move America Forward W (916) 441-6197 | F (916) 441-6057 | C (916) 583-8321 8795 Folsom Blvd., Suite 103 Sacramento, CA 95826 www.MoveAmericaForward.org
