Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, Military & Veterans Organizations, National Security, Veterans

Mission: Move America Forward (MAF) is the nation's largest grassroots pro-troop organization dedicated to supporting the brave men and women of our Armed. Our principal mission today is to provide military troop and K9 care packages with letters from grateful Americans to the troops deployed in combat areas around the world. While there are many admirable groups supporting our veterans, we are one of the few organizations left supporting active duty troops deployed to the front lines of Afghanistan, Iraq, and other areas around the world where are troops are in harm’s way. MAF is supported by hundreds of thousands of pro-troop activists, veterans, and military families all across the nation who share in our unwavering support. We work with other non-profits, military service organizations, corporate sponsors, community networks and private citizens to support our Military and demonstrate affirmatively our appreciation and admiration for their service to America.

Results: MAF has sent over 345 tons of care packages to deployed troops and continues to this day

Target demographics: Combat Deployed U.S. Military Service Members

Direct beneficiaries per year: Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force

Geographic areas served: Afghanistan, Iraq and any other place we have combat deployed troops

Programs: Military Troop and K9 Care Packages: We send care packages full of the most requested items our troops want with personal messages of support to remind them they are not forgotten by the American people. This enables us to send care packages filled with Gourmet Coffee, Premium Beef Jerky, Genuine Oreo Cookies, Flavored Gatorade, Mixed Nuts/Trail Mix bags, Baby Wipes and many other items our combat troops cannot get where they are. Enclosed with each care package are messages of support from the sponsor, letting them hear the personal feelings of appreciation from the American people. Each box is hand packed by our volunteers and may contain special seasonal items for the current holiday. K9 Care Packages also include eye-protecting “Doggles” & KONG Classic dog toys.

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

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.

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...................

Just sayin'..........................

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.

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!

Want to give a HUGE thank you to Move America Forward. I just got my package yesterday and it was full of good stuff. Snacks, Goodies, and extras that I can definitely use. Thank you so much. What you all do for us means so much. Often it seems like the folks back home forget about us. Knowing that your Organization and all the People that volunteer still think and care about us means everything.
Keep up the good work. It really does help, more than I could possibly express in a post.
thank you!

Just want to say thank you for your care package. My young airmen really and truly appreciate your care package, and your support of us back home. I enjoyed watching the look on the young airmen assigned to my section, they were like children on Christmas morning. It's time when they are away from home that they truly thankful that folks back home still take time out of their busy schedule to recognize them and send them a little something from back home. items they need, but mostly things that remind them of back home and family. Again thank you and God Bless you all the days of your life.
