Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Emergency Assistance, Human Services

Mission: Camp Courage was born in March of 2012, with one project to touch a few Marines at Camp Pendleton, CA in the SAC rehab unit. That initial project consisted of 8 care packages. We were so thrilled when that project was shipped and we started getting responses from our recipients. We collectively decided to continue doing care packages. Camp Courage has a wonderful network of members who continue to support our efforts. We have shipped to Japan, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Spain, Hawaii, California, 29 Palms, North Carolina, South Carolina in addition to several other stateside locations. We are proud to announce that we are preparing to ship our 43rd project. We are honored for the opportunity to reach out to Marines and other service members through care packages in an effort to express our sincerest appreciation for their selfless choice to serve our great nation! We are proud to be a charity that is completely operated by volunteers, there is no paid staff. There are 10 volunteers that share the same passion for those who serve our country. It is an honor to have the privilege we do, to support those who give so much for us

Results: These projects have become something very near and dear to our hearts and the hearts of so many families and service members worldwide. We are currently shipping to all branches of our military as the needs are presented to us. As of recent we have shipped a total of 3296 care packages worldwide!

Programs: Care packages - all expenses are incurred solely to create and mail care packages. Funds spent on office supplies, banking fees etc are for process to generate income for the care packages. Approximately 1,000 care packages were sent.

I found Camp Courage after my son became a Marine. Mai Christy, the founder, supports our military so well. She is constantly looking for and finding ways to keep sending care packages to all the people in our military. She and all the volunteers of Camp Courage are constantly looking for items and "pieces of home" to put into these care packages, so our soldiers, airmen, Marines, sailors, etc. can know that there are people thinking about them and thanking them and honoring them for their service to our country. The Camp Courage vision is "To reach as many service members as possible through the outreach of our care package projects in an effort to express our sincerest appreciation for their selfless choice to serve our great nation." and everyone who is a volunteer for Camp Courage does exactly that. I am proud to be a part of something so special.

I can't say enough about Camp Courage!!! The heart that we have cohesively for our Troops is AMAZING!!! We all come together in support of our Military to make sure they are taken care of one care package at at time. It doesn't stop there though. We give our support in card/letter writing, in prayers, in helping in anyway that is possible to see that the needs of our Service men and women are taken care of. Beyond that we have become an incredible group of strength for one another. I love Camp Courage and all that we stand for! So grateful I am a part of it!!! Semper Fi!!!

Camp Courage is such a wonderful charity. You see my son is a Marine and we dont have the money to send him packages. Camp Courage does it for us. My son as well as many other of our military get sent packages of things they may need.

This is an outstanding group. As a Military Mom they have supported our troops with care packages that not only provide necessary items but boost morale of our troops. They provide our troops with a little comfort from home. Each care package also contains letters our support and encouragement.
Camp Courage works from donations and never charging for the care packages sent. These ladies are truly the best group around. I am forever grateful for all they have done.

Camp Courage is a non-profit who's mission is to send care packages to service members world wide. This lifts the spirits of countless active military members and is invaluable! Camp Courage is also a place where families of all service members (past & present) can go to receive an outpouring of support no matter what your situation is. It helps those who are lost (in a new military world) and encourages all members to be strong for our loved ones serving! A wonderful mission and support system all in one. I couldn't imagine being the mother of a Marine, without Camp Courage!

This group of people is the most selfless, generous, wonderful collection human beings that exists. They send care packages to service members around the world who are actively serving and protecting our wonderful country. They put their personal lives on hold and give back to others. They positively support each other in every possible way in addition to their charity work. They are the perfect example of the word charity and never expect anything in return. They just want to see our military members smile and they always make that happen.

CC is operated by volunteers that love our Men/Women that serve in the United States Military. CC sends care packages monthly to active military who are deployed, or state side, or over-seas. They send birthday cards, birthday wishes, prayers. This particular charity makes my heart smile. Thank you CC from a MoM.!!

Camp Courage, Mai Christy and all her volunteers are amazing! Care packages and cards of encouragement are sent to our military men and women serving our country. The care packages mean so much more than the items that are enclosed...getting a touch of "love" from home to our men and women mean more than words could ever say. They are in awe that total strangers get together and send things to them and remember them. One young man I know personally that received a care package was totally floored that out of all the men and women that serve, he was chosen...he did not think he was that special to anyone until he received the "love" from Camp Courage. All of us face battles in our personal lives but in spite of that, every single month Camp Courage volunteers and donors step up to honor our heroes...those protecting our country through their military service! So very proud of Camp Courage and for who it stands for!
