My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hugs Project Incorporated, Oklahoma City, OK, USA
Started with The HUGS Project over 10 years ago, when my AF son went to Afghanistan the first time. It helped ME to be doing something to help those in harms way, and I know it helped many of them, by the letters and pictures of response we got. I also helped in various fund raising efforts, like the Blazing Sun - Run for Freedom - a super hot run in July to remind folks that our troops are in terrible heat WITH backpacks, etc...several military came out and ran in full gear and “Captain America” came with his dog to take the kids on a walk, looking for anything “bad” - he was great, getting down and looking at ant hills, hiding behind bushes, the kids participated and loved it! This non-profit organization is run on donations and they are stretched as far as possible. We send postage paid size boxes with everything from gum, canned tuna, protein bars and candy to socks, razors, baby wipes and toilet paper. Some of these folks are out in the country with no BX or Walmart in sight! The postage is NOT free, but the regular rate, and we pack them as tight and full as possible. I am proud to be a part of this amazing group of people, dedicated and selfless in so many ways.
