I have worked in Medical Leadership Position with TX Army National Guard, and have worked with many veterans and companies.

The Boots Campaign has been far and away hosted the most top notch events that I have attended, and been an avid supported of our veterans.
Thanks to Christina and all The Boots Campaign Staff!

I have been a part of this organization since it's inception and have watched it positively impact the lives of not only our veterans, but their family members as well. It continues to strive to find the most important needs of our veteran population and address them head on, while honoring their service and sacrifice.

The Boot Campaign promotes patriotism, cultivates awareness, and provides necessary programs for the men and women coming home from combat. I believe it is our duty as Americans to support the 1% of the population who are willing to defend our freedom, and it is SO easy! The Boot Campaign can help you do it in a fun, visible and tangible way - by GETTING YOUR BOOTS ON! The feeling you will get from purchasing a pair of boots, wearing them out and starting a conversation will be unlike any other, and you know you LITERALLY helped someone in need.

I have personally seen the difference Boot Campaign makes in the lives of military families, and it is through pure, genuine passion this organization thrives. Not only does this nonprofit go out of their way to raise awareness and promote patriotism, they are dedicated to providing assistance whenever possible, and partner up with other strong organizations to have an even greater impact. Their mission is unparalleled and the heart behind the operation is absolutely awe-inspiring.

I love everything about this organization... Passion, Patriotism, and Purpose! Everytime I wear my boots, someone will ask me about them, which gives me the opportunity to to tell people how they can help our military. The charity is very transparent so you know exactly how much of your donation goes directly to helps support Career Placement, Housing, Family Support, Urgent Assistance and Wellness.... and so much more!

I have had the honor of being a volunteer of the Boot Campaign. I stared volunteering with them at their start, back in 2009. I have been close enough to see the money come in, and go straight into the hands of the men women, children and family members of our nations bravest and most deserving heroes. There is no better feeling to know that donating my time and money is appreciated, and placed exactly where I am told it goes. My life has been changed by the selflessness of every person on this team. From the Board of Directors, to the part time employees, every person is there for the right reasons. I am proud to call myself a supporter of this Campaign.

Our family has made a donation to the Boot Campaign for three consecutive years, with the amount increasing each year. The founders and staff of the organization are extremely creative and entrepreneurial; they are also completely dedicated and focused on helping those who have helped secure the freedoms we all enjoy. Based on my experience with other charities, it is also my belief that the Boot Campaign is above-average in terms of the amount of resources actually directed toward programming rather than on administration or fund-raising. As long as we continue to be in a position to do so, my wife and plan to continue our support of the Boot Campaign.

I have been fortunate to prosper in the current poor market and have searched for an organization that is dedicated to help our service men and women, who I feel deserve our gratitude for the selfless acts they have to perform to ensure our safety and prosperity. It is a travesty how they are treated by our government (past and current). I have been very impressed by the programs that the Boot Campaign provide to them to help them get on their feet. I researched several organizations and have found this one to be one of the best at actually providing a helping hand, not a hand out. God bless our troops and the Boot Campaign for being there to help them. I hope for the day when they are not needed but until then I plan to do all I can to support them as long as they continue this needed and appreciated endeavor.

What an amazing organization. I've seen first hand how the funds they raise go DIRECTLY to the support of our veterans.
There are so many times in my life I've wondered where the money went- NOT the case with the Boot Campaign. They are so efficient and effective with their resources.

The Boot Campaign is an amazing origination that has one goal in mind, to GIVE BACK! I am honored that I have had the privilege to be involved with the Boot Campaign on over the past couple of years, it has changed my life to see how many families are touched and reached through this origination. The Boot Campaign does not just talk about helping our military men and women when they come back, they "Put their Boots On", and get it done!

Very professional organization with a truly unique method of raising funds and marketing. My wife and I have both bought boots from the Boot Campaign and they're so comfortable that I wear mine almost every day. It's a win-win for the supporters and recipients of this great charity.
