My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Camp Courage, Fargo, ND, USA
At first, I was a little worried about giving time or anything to any organization for care packages as I had seen first hand how some of them would say one thing but it would be totally used for something personal.
But then I got in touch with the Admins of Camp Courage. I have a son who is Military, and as a single mom with 3 children trying to make ends meet, I turned to this group and asked them about sending him and some of the guys/gals that my Military son works with care packages. 20 packages total. They not one time hesitated. Gave them the information they needed to have all 20 packages sent to my son and he handed them out to the guys/gals in his unit. They gladly accepted and within a couple weeks my son contacted me excited and said everyone was so thrilled to have gotten a package "from home" cards, letters from kids coloring pages from groups of children were the highlight of their day. Said it was like watching children open a special present they had been hoping that Santa would bring them Christmas Morning. Since then, I decided right then and there that I would figure a way to pay it forward to this wonderful organization for putting a smile on my son's face and the face of his fellow Military brothers/sisters.
I have sense decided that even if I can't contribute with money to the packages, that I would become a "Card writer". Knowing that my card could brighten someone's day as others have done for my son makes it all worth doing. I am so thankful for God putting this group in my life and the life of so many others. Seeing posts or pics of those that get the boxes and the joy and smile on their faces is what makes this group a ONE OF A KIND GROUP..
If you love our Military and want to help out but are limited. Hey there is no such thing as there is nothing I can do because there is something that everyone can do to help show our Men and Women in the Military how much we as American's Stand Behind Our Troops..
I would recommend this group to anyone who could find it in their heart to help any way you can because even the smallest donation or even to write a card or even get a group to do coloring pages with a short note to them is well worth it. And everything donated goes to the care packages.. Nothing is used for personal gain. The only personal gain anyone receives is the person who is receiving the love and support these care packages have to offer them when they are opened..
With my son being on the receiving end of their care packages, I turned to volunteering for them just by writing cards for them, and have NEVER one time had any regrets doing so!
CAMP COURAGE IS A TOP NOTCH, 5 STAR, AND ONE HUNDRED PERCENT DEDICATED GROUP WHO SUPPORTS OUR MILITARY WORLD WIDE ONE CARE PACKAGE AT A TIME!!
