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
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
Move America Forward does great work. I drop off letters to have included in the care packages monthly. It is always interesting to see all of the needed things they are including in the boxes. The piles of boxes ready to be shipped or waiting to be packed is always impressive. I am glad to donate toward the shipping of the boxes and am always happy to see the photos of the troops who receive the care packages.
Hey there! Thank you so much for all that you do to support the troops! Nothing would be possible without people like you! See you soon!
My place of employment ran an event to encourage people to write letters to our active duty service members. I delivered the letters to the Move America Forward office to ensure they would get to the soldiers and received a tour of the offices and more information on how they collect items and ship them. This is a great organization run by people who are passionate about what they do. I know it costs somewhere around $14 to ship each care package, and while I wish I could do more I am grateful to chip in enough for at least one. Keep up the good work!
Thank you so much for the support! We are very thankful to you for helping us, without your support and others like you, nothing would be possible!
My men spent the holidays in Afghanistan this year. Spirits were a little low considering we were far from family and home. The package we received from Move America Forward was a much needed boost that helped us soldier on this winter. Thanks so much Move America Forward!
Please let us know if we can ever send more to you, or anyone else you know! THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO! It is an honor for us to help!
We were looking for a way to show our appreciation and respect to the many military personnel who protect us and our freedoms on a daily basis. We strongly feel that each of these men & women deserve much better treatment from the VA and the gov't upon their return. We're poor, but decided to do as much as we can for these heroes. Move America Forward let us donate $50 in two installments. We only wish we could write a heartfelt letter to these brave defenders of freedom to express our sincere gratitude. Anyway, Move America Forward made it very easy for us to contribute in the best way we could. Their site is user-friendly and 88 cents of every dollar goes directly to the troops! Next time, we hope to visit the site early enough to help with the packaging so we can include a letter of gratitude for all they do and sacrifice for us. We strongly urge everyone who has the means to help in some way. Thank you!
Well I hope to see you guys soon and have you pack up the boxes! I couldn't agree more with the comment on the VA and govt. We are very thankful for your support! Nothing would be possible with out it!
I enjoyed all the photos of our men and women in the service of our great country The faces of the dedicated volunteers of all ages and the site in general Your all doing a great service
to help support our troops we appreciate all you do Now we need more people to
support our brave men and women by sending as many packages as we can not just
Christmas So lets all make a difference and donate today Thank you
Thank you for supporting our troops! We are proud to be able to support them all year long not just the holiday! THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!
It's a wonderful cause and my experience with them has been great. The thank you letters I get from service men are priceless
We are so happy that you enjoyed supporting the troops with us as your resource! Nothing would be possible without your help!
We are so grateful to MOA to be able to show our soldiers including K9's they are NOT forgotten, that we truly love and care about them through one of these great gifts MOA pulls together with gifts, supplies and goodies at a price we can all afford. MOA works tirelessly all year long to make sure our beloved troops are NOT forgotten. I can't afford much but w/o our soldiers we wouldn't be here enjoying our lives freely however we choose to live our lives or celebrate. This is truly a blessing for each of us.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO TO HONOR AND SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! We couldn't do it with out you! We are grateful to you for helping us in our mission to support those most deserving, the US MILITARY!
As a former Navy officer on duty for 4 years after college, it's been my privilege to donate to Move America Forward for several years.
Showing our gratitude for the service of our troops to the USA by sending them care packages throughout the year and especially Christmas and New Year means a lot to them.
I encourage everyone with the ability to donate and support our troops to do so as often as possible. The troops do so much for us and more than deserve to know that we love them and support them.
I was Navy 02-07, thank you so much for your support, it mean a lot to us and nothing we do would be possible with our it! Thank you for your service and please let us know if we can send support to you, your mess or any of your divisions!
Move America Forward is a great organization that I proudly support. Our men and women in the military are often away from their families and by donating you can help Move America Forward to provide gift packages to one or many of them.
We are so fortunate to have incredible supporters like you that make it all possible to send support to our Heroes! Thank you!! Also yes anyone can request a care package for a loved one serving overseas! Just let us know!
I have been sending packages and notes to the troops via MoveAmericaForward.org for many years. The site is always easy to navigate and gives me many options in content and price. More than anything else, the people who run the organization truly care about our men and women serving across the globe. I love the military folk and their families - and so do they. I love the posts from the recipients they provide. Those photos and thank you notes are heartfelt and inspiring. Move America Forward makes thanking our troops so easy. I will continue to donate through them and thank them for what they do for our heroes. Many of them are vets: they are all heroes too.
Thank you for all of your support! Nothing we do would be possible with out it! We are so fortunate to have people like you that share in our unwavering support for our military to join us, and make it possible to send these care packages! Thank you so much!
We donate to this grass-roots organization because they are an amazing group of everyday citizens who supports our men & women abroad not only through the holidays but all throughout the year. Being a soldier isn't seasonal, it is a lifetime commitment and MAF is equally committed to each and every one of our brave and honorable soldiers. We love them and we love MAF. Thank you for all you do. You are proof that every good deed matters.
Thank you so much for your support! And everything you do for our troops! Supporting our troops all year long is only possible of support like yours all year long! THANK YOU !!!
As a former Army Medic during the Vietnam era, I lost several "buddies".................
What our current military members do in the field places them in the same danger..........
Yet, they are willing to do their part to keep our great Nation free..........
Move America Forward provides an opportunity for us back home to express our thanks, in a very positive way, to those who are serving. By donating through Move America Forward you can show that you care.
Please help by providing the care packages that are so welcomed by those in the field. A touch of back home...................

Perry, THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR THIS COUNTRY! Thank you for your service and thank you for your support it means a lot to us here at MAF.
Very professional and efficient. Extremely helpful and their operator didn't try to push additional sales on us.
Thank you for the kind words, we are a resource and here if anyone wants to support the troops! Thank you guys for your support!
I am a Vietnam veteran, having served two combat tours with the Marines. Guideposts was a magazine I read whenever I could. Guideposts, praying day & night, & especially GOD were the reasons I made it back .On the few times we were back in a safe area we would receive care packages & items from various organizations that really raised our morale. It's wonderful to know that people care.Being in combat is , without a doubt, the most grueling experience a young solder can endure - & to know that your country is behind you is so important for morale. Donating to America Moving Forward is a great way to show our troops we care. SEMPER FI-always faithful. John Keith-a Marine always.
Move America Forward does amazing work! Continuously strives to show appreciation to our military and send them little reminders of home. After volunteering at one event for a required school project, I will definitely be volunteering again! Very organized, thoughtful and inspiring individuals that make this nonprofit successful. The event I attended also included individuals from the Wounded Warrior Project. All around great experience and I would recommend to anyone wanting to give some time to a worthy cause.
I've been a member of Move America Forward for many years and I know they do tremendous work as I've gotten a number of thank you notes for packages delivered to troops stationed overseas. In my opinion the job they do is beyond great especially when you consider that so many organizations supporting our troops do so much less. This is a top notch group of people and I'm proud to support them.
Thank so much to MAF for sending me a a care package it was a great honor to read some of the little notes from you guys. It felt great to recieve mail and the items in side yhanks again looking forward to hearing fro you guys soon
Signed up my MedEvac pilot son for a package to be sent to his group currently in Afghanistan. Within days, I got an email that one had been sent. I'm so thankful. I worry that people don't realize our troops are still deployed and defending us. Am sending photos from Afghanistan. Thanks again!
