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.

Care packages for our military are VITAL to morale and the dedicated volunteers of Camp Courage make it happen ALL THE TIME! I know that my son has benefited by receiving multiple care packages and it has done SO much to encourage him to keep going. The board and the vendors are top notch - top notch service, top notch admins, top notch products. The support system they provide for military families is also unmatched. Thank you for considering Camp Courage for this!
