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
On behalf of our unit, deployed in harms way at an undisclosed location, where it is a beach with no water, we would like to thank Move America Forward, for their great support to the US military. We truly appreciate the care package. The things we take for granted back in the U.S., we get to enjoy, even if just to remind us of family and home. Whether it's a taste of a familiar candy, the precious letters of gratitude and well wishes, or the very mere joy of receiving a parcel mailed to you. From all the men and women, whose lives you've made better and enjoyable, we truly thank you!!! Long live America!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! It is our honor to support you and if you need anything more please let us know, we woudl be happy to send more care packages! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!! Be safe and god bless you all! IF you guys have any pictures we love to see them and share with our supporters!!
A huge shoutout to Move America Forward! We received over thirty boxes from various donors and it made so many people's day! It's great to know that there are still wonderful and caring people out there supporting the troops! Thank you letters have been sent to the organization and those that put individual letters inside of the boxes so we hope those are received! Pictures to come and again, we can't thank you enough!
WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE PICTURES!! THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DO AND PLEASE LET US KNOW IF WE SHOULD SEND MORE!!
MAF sent me a care package on deployment from a family member who gave them my name and address. Not only did they send it to me but they asked if they could send more and we have a lot of other Sailors on board that are expecting care packages now. I deeply appreciate the volunteers at MAF and I appreciate their hospitality. Thank you all!
It is our honor to send support we are so glad you received your care packages! Please let us know if we can send more or if anyone else can use some support!

I am currently deployed to Iraq and received an email that I will soon be receiving a care package. I have not yet received the package but the thought alone that I am getting a package is enough to put a smile on my face ear to ear. I also signed all of my team up to receive a package.

Every year -- especially at Christmas -- I think about how great it would be to participate in getting "care packages" delivered to our troops who are serving on duty away from home. Recently, I heard "Troopathon.org" mentioned by a respected radio host. I wasn't familiar with that organization, but I searched on-line and discovered "Move America Forward." I am so glad I found them! Navigating their website was easy, and though I am not a wealthy person, I found a level of contribution I could afford. It gives me great pleasure to fund a care package that others will assemble and deliver. The website provides much information -- even listing possible items that will be included in the care packages. I am thankful for everyone at Move America Forward, who makes it possible for me to participate in such a worthy cause.
Thank you so MUCH Alice, We are honored to welcome you on our team and can't thank you enough for making a sacrifice for those who sacrifice so much for us! If you ever need anything from us please just let us know, As a new supporter, you shoudl know that you will receive a tax receipt at the end of the year and another courtesy during tax season, also if you ever run into anyone that needs support or want to support the program please direct them our way! Thank you again for helping us support our heroes!!

Just a military mom...know personally what it takes for our men and women to sacrifice so much for our freedoms! Thank you for your help and support for our gals and guys! Mrs. James Davis
Just a military mom is one of the most important things there is. My mother had a very tough time with it but helped me so much while i was deployed. Thank you for everything your family has done and continues to do now to support our country, As a military son thank you Mrs. James Davis, it is our honor to have your support!
This is so important to our warriors, that they see firsthand how much I appreciate their sacrifice and commitment to We,the American people. It's my part and privilege. I'm praying too,as these warriors are the heart and soul of America. I thank God for this Non Profit and their service. Great vision.MOVE AMERICA FORWARD has really put nice,needed items & goodies too. God continue to bless you all.
JGloria, We can not thank you enough for helping us support those who deserve it most!! It is an honor for us to have your on our team and making sure that we reach as many of our nations defenders as possible! God Bless our Troops!
My husband is a Retired Navy Commander, my daughter is in the USAF...never ever can we thank those who serve and have served and especially those who have given the ultimate sacrifice enough!
My business (us) contributes to the best cause...our men and women in the armed forces! If I have an inkling someone is serving or has, I can't move quick enough to say thank you!
Would be a rather superlative gesture if our present government could do the same! In gratitude, Blessings upon all.

I was watching the news about a local fire near my home in Santa Barbara while in the comfort of my air conditioned home when I received the information about the weather conditions of 117 degrees that our Troops were having to bear and felt motivated to bring some relief to at least one of them.
I know it isn't much but I will encourage everyone I know to do the same. The act of helping one brave man or woman is the very least I can do. Thank you for giving me this opportunity.
Sincerely, Jill Mosher
Hello Jill, Not much means everything, thank you for supporting our troops!! It is our honor to have your support and helping us support our Heroes!
Troop 9 is our family's "Troop". They make sure we are always in touch with them, which is important to us. We received a page with everyone's signature and a short message....we're framing it to help us to remember to pray for them. These attempts on our part to stay in touch also helps them, as evidenced by their many thank you's. This is a priority for our family.
Phyllis and Dick Klein
Phyllis and Dick, THANK YOU SO MUCH for always supporting our troops, we are honored to have your help and can not thank you enough for all that you do! God Bless YOU!!
I so totally believe in this organization, I give monthly (along with extra donations). They work tirelessly to see our troops get a taste of home. They let the troops know they are not forgotten. They even take care of the K-9 Corp.
THANK YOU for being in our Monthly SMiles program!! It really is so important to our program because the troops are deployed all year not around the holidays!! Thank you for always remembering our heroes!!
I have donated to this organization many times, initially after hearing how they got started and what they were doing. They are very easy to donate to online, and have a lot of information available as to what they are doing.
Thank you so much for your review, we are always trying to get better, please let us know if there is anything you ever need and thank you so much for supporting our Heroes!! SR
I have regularly supported Move America for several years as they take care of our troops while they are away making sacrifices to keep us safe in America. This nonprofit is greatly helped by volunteers and the troops acknowledge all the support and are grateful. Everyone gains.
We could do nothing without army of volunteers, they hand pack each box. Thankyou for being a supporter and helping us support our troops in harms way. It is a "win win", we get to give back and they are reminded that they will never be forgotten!
The charity did not have its audited financials prepared by an independent accountant. This is a problem with Accountability and Transparency.

This charity's website did not published its audited financial statements for the fiscal year represented from a recently filed IRS Form 990. It is important for donors to have easy access to this financial report to help determine if the organization is managing its financial resources well. . charities that do publish their audit online we should also report and rate whether or not the auditor's opinion was qualified or unqualified.

They're the best! I have heard from soldiers in the field how important these care packages are to them.
We are so glad that you received word back. Please take a picture with your letter back and send it to us with the text to share with others! Thank you for supporting our Heroes!
I was in the Air Force for 2 years and I never got a package from the home front. My Mom had just died two months after I went to basic, my dad never wrote and had moved on with his life. My two brothers(one a retire Lieut. Colonel in the army and the other was recycled from the Navy boot) also never wrote.
I felt alone with other people of my dorm who also never got a letter or a parcel even though our first night, we were ordered to write a letter home but mine came back undelivered for my father had moved. We must something for them even a letter, a package, a DVD of family activities; anything so they don't feel alone.
Thank you for your service and sharing your story. That feeling is of alone is something we are fighting against one care pack at a time thanks to your generosity and support. Thank you so much for using us as your resource to support the troops.
This is a game changer when sending care packages to soldiers. Not only is this a worthy cause it just feels right and God sees everything. Like my wife says, "what we do in our life span matters." So, do it well, with honor and integrity.
A special thanks to all reading this message and we continue to keep you in our prayers at every opportunity.
"So, do it well, with honor and integrity" Please let you wife know we appreciate her very wise words! Thank you for using us as a resource to support the troops. We can not thank you enough for your support! We are only able to support our heroes because of people like you! THANK YOU!
