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
I have always had a great experience helping Move America Forward send care packages. The staff truly believes in the cause and it shows through their work. The organization goes above and beyond in supporting our troops and putting a smile on their face. I personally get a lot of satisfaction from knowing I played a role - albeit a small one - in packing care packages for MAF. I leave knowing that a soldier, somewhere in harms way, will be receiving that package and it will remind them a little bit of home and everything they are fighting for.
Move America Forward supports the troops in their war on terror. By nature, the troops that need the most support are deployed abroad and are engaged in foreign wars. Foreign policy and wars are divisive by nature, but one thing we should all agree on is that our brave men and women of the armed forces deserve our support. This is something that Move America Forward does a good job at and takes pride in.
This made it very easy to send a package to my daughter and to a couple of her fellow soldiers. My daughter was thrilled with the contents. So good enuf for me ! I'll send again at Easter.
Thank you for using us as your resource
Its really a shame that people feel the need to inject their own politics into these reviews, people are looking to find out what a charity is all about.
Move America Forward is a great non partisan, non profit. They ship care packages to the troops in Afghanistan all year and come with great items. They also have dog care packages and let you sign up people to receive care packages for free. But what I like is being able to include my own letter to the troops.
I also get a call from a woman thanking me for the donation. Its not necessary but I do appreciate it.
Its a great way to send a care package to our military I would definitely recommend this charity and do.
Move America Forward bills itself as a charity to raise money for care packages for US troops abroad. However the organization's "troopathon" project is mostly a promotional vehicle for a variety of right-wing celebrities. Fund-raising pitches are mixed in with heavily ideological and harsh critiques of allegedly left-wing and defeatist US foreign and security policies by the likes of Mark Levin and Sarah Palin.
One of the principal charitable activities of the groups involves sending Conservative semi-celebrities to visit with troops and to distribute gifts. At the time these are distributed the original source of the gifts are not very clear.
MAF is a effectively a political outreach organization using a charity model.
We are thankful for anyone that helps us support the troops, no matter their political belief. We do have "celebrities" that support us but they use their reach to help promote the troops. Thank you for your comments and unwavering support for our military. I hope if you decide to send a care package you will consider us.
