Boot Campaign is an amazing Non Profit organization. The fact that over 80cents per every dollar goes back into the programs and to our veterans sold me! I know for me personally Boot Campaign has changed my life. I now see the dire need to give back to our veterans. It is more than putting a bumper stick on your car saying you support the troops. Boot Campaign is giving relief to those in need, and changing lives. Thank you Boot Campaign for being genuine and transparent!

This has got to be one of the best nonprofit organizations for vets and their family members. With the kick off of Santa Boots this year, I was able to see them at work. The lives that were touched by this event was heart warming. When the people at Boot Campaign say thank you for your service, they mean it. Thank you Boot Campaign for all that you have done and will do for our veterans.

I have been wanting to get involved with wounded warriors for sometine. I sent Christmas Cards but I did not feel like that was enough. I am a daughter of a Vietnam Vet my father suffers from multiple issues. He has such a hard time getting help from the Veterans it makes me crazy. I have many friends that went to war in the middle east that are suffering too. Last night on Tomi Lahren Jonny Jones was on speaking about the Boot Campaign, I immediately went onto the website and found out that I could volunteer in so many ways they even have training classes. I am extremely honored that I get to be involved in helping our soldiers.

Thank you, Grateful Citizen Alicia

Boot Campaign is such a phenomenal organization. They support a cause with passion and perseverance that I wish I could support more. Through donations and purchases all of my experiences have been great. I enjoy their emails that keep me up to date on their activities and those associated wi the Boot Campaign. Never Quit!

I feel extremely blessed to live in a country where we fight for freedom, help those in need, and support those who risk their lives for us every day. This organization embodies all that is American. They bring awareness to our heroes and aid them when they need it the most. I am a proud supporter of the Boot Campaign and love the attention I get when I "get my boot on". Keep on, keepin' on, Boot Campaign!

My experience with the boot campaign charity was easy. I come from a family of United States Marine Corps soldiers, Philadelphia police officers, and government contractors for the State Department. My blood sweat and tears has always been and will always be in support of our military and police. Every little bit helps. Stay safe to all those serving and God bless America.

I originally saw some things on The Chive about The Boot Campaign and it sparked my interest, then I heard all the great things the fellas from The Drinkin' Bros Podcast had to say about the company and I knew this was the place. Nobody deserves our help and thanks more than this nations veterans, Boot Campaign does some awesome things for the vets and the money we give goes to the right place, not to mention what they do is cool. I love the idea of the Boot Campaign, and they have some awesome gear to show your support with!

My husband is a Marine who was medically retired from the Corps due to neck and asthma issues that developed while he was in the service. A couple of years ago we found ourselves in a tough spot. We both lost our jobs and my husband had to have surgery on his neck for the 2nd time. We were struggling to make ends meet on unemployment and his small retirement. We were behind on our mortgage payments and were very scared that we would lose our home before finding employment. Then someone told us about The Boot Campaign. My husband is a proud Marine and it was hard for him to reach out to "strangers" for help. But The people at The Boot Campaign were wonderful. They were understanding and willing to do what they could to help. After verifying some information and listening to our worries they stepped right up to help. The assistance they gave us helped us breathe a little easier while worked to get back on our feet. They are an incredible organization with some truly understanding people who are there to help our Veterans when the need it.

I recently heard about The Boot Campaign from a friend on Facebook. I quickly looked into it and was so excited that it was something I could contribute to! My son was in the Navy, and is now home, dry and safe with a job and a home. I realize how lucky we are and how fortunate he is. There are so many soldiers that have come home less fortunate. I am disabled, so I can't join a monthly donation thing, but I'm quite please with your blanket, and essential package! It was also very easy to make a donation to. It made me feel better to give! Thanks for this awesome Campaign!

A few years back Scruffy Wallace put sometjing out there about a charity called Boot Campaign. I decided to check them out. I feel our soldiers need to be supported before, during and after deployment. I bought my first pair. The SWAT style boots were very well made..and very durable. My job is very demanding on boots and a pair would never go past 6 months. This pair over a year. I am now onto my 6th pair. My UA and Rat boots are my going out boots. I have gone through pair of SWAT boots in 3 years and just got in my GX-8's. Again a very durable and we'll built boot. Thank you ladies who started this charity and to all that help keep it going

I first heard of the "Boot Champaign" on a show I was watching; I was so impressed, I immediately googled them & saved it to my bookmarks. I didn't have the money art the time; my Hero, my Dad was about to turn 80 & seeing he had served in the USMC, always giving too charities for Veterans; I thought, wow, if I could follow his example, I'd love to get him the "Boots"! Well, I didn't think out would be soon (or possible), but today I DID! The"Boot Campaign" was so helpful, they responed immediately to ALL my questions via email & text... Wow!!! I can't wait for my Dad to receive his"Boots"; knowing that I too am giving back to the Men & Women for whom I am deeply indebted to! Thank you "Boot Campaign"for all you do & giving me the opportunity to give back; in more ways then one!!!

I ordered a few things through BC and my last buy I finally went all out and bought a pair boots, but they were to Big which is odd for me, sent them back with no hassle, got the replacements just in time for a few Christmas toy runs.
Just ordered a cap to with the boots.

I have been a member for the last 5 years, and since then there have been many, many more nonprofits (military-minded) that have been started, but I would put this one at the top of my list. Hats off to the Boot Girls that started this worthy campaign. Keep doing what your doing ... you have helped so many that would have otherwise been literally left behind. Thank you to all that keep this nonprofit going with the hard work, dedication, and time where they could be spending it with their families. Priceless.

BAM! I was a 10 year U.S Army Veteran (HOOAH), and I recently got out last year, I had the unfortunate opportunity of getting married, and going through divorce, losing everything and returning home to Ohio to live. It was all very sad and terrible circumstances. I finally just gave it a shot and reached out to Boot Campaign in times where things were very hard and difficult for me. The staff was amazing and helpful and assisted right away with asking questions, addressing my issues I was specifically having and actually felt like they cared. Their MRF (military recovery fund) program is amazing and was an absolute godsend. I was approved a grant and it got me back on track in this tough transition back to the world. Thank you BOOT CAMPAIGN! You know you have a true fan and boot squader here! -BAM-

This is my second pair of boots that I have gotten from Boot Campaign, Inc. I finally conceded this fall that I had to retire my first pair after 5 years of heavy use. Believe it or not, the bottom eyelets had finally worn through - the rest of the boot was still chugging along! I had gotten the U.S. Navy DuraShock Steel-Toe Boots - and that's what I've ordered again. A great product from a great non-profit!!

I started off as a supporter of Boot Campaign, which turned me into a volunteer for them as well! I am constantly pleasantly surprised with the friendliness and professionalism of everyone I have ever had the privilege of working with....from customer service when I really really wanted a shirt that was out of stock, to the volunteer coordinator, to marketing.... It is a great pleasure to be even a small part of Boot Campaign (My closet is full of boots and all kinds of Boot Campaign shirts to prove it!)!

Boot Campaign was a tremendous help in obtaining the necessary equipment my doctors recommended to aid in treatment of my service connected conditions. Their customer service was very knowledgeable, courteous, and helpful every step of the way. From the first inquiry to final approval I felt as though Boot Campaign took a vested interest in my overall well-being. I am forever grateful for Boot Campaign and the generosity they provided in meeting my needs.

We were at the end of our rope! As a result of my wife having breast cancer we accumulated a lot of medical bills, which diverted funds from normal household expenses. When everyone else said no, Boot Campaign gave us a much needed helping hand, not a hand out. We thank God for the entire Boot Campaign organization for caring enough to help Veterans and their family.

I was denied by every organization out there before I came to boot campaign. During a time when my life couldn't have been any better boot campaign was there to help. They kept me from losing my home, vehicles, and being able to provide stability to my four year old daughter. Boot Campaign is truly one of the few organizations out there who are there to help veterans like myself.

#HP Home of the Brave made it so easy to donate fleece blankets to our local Atlanta VA Medical Center through the Boot Campaign website #HonorVets. I appreciated the free shipping, so all of my donation goes straight to the donated items. I gave in memory of my Dad, who was in the Navy in the Pacific in WWII, and of several uncles who were in the Army in Europe in WWII. When you go out to the Boot Campaign, in addition to donating Honor Packs or Blankets - take the time to check out their boots and read the back story; check out other apparel and jewelry options - I wish they hadn't already sold out on their logo pins! Order today: http://hp.nu/Ra2ek Cheers, Kristi H.

Push Ups For Charity partnered with the Boot Campaign to help us create a community event to help raise funds by seeing how many push ups you could do in 90 seconds. With the community participating by sponsoring or doing push ups we've been able to raise over $70,000 for our veterans just by doing push ups! Can't wait to do it again next year on Armed Forces Day.
