What Does “Thank You” Look Like?

THANK YOU
for helping us create all these smiles and more in 2012!

In these last few days of 2012, we reflect upon and greatly appreciate your generosity that enabled us to send more then 150,000 Operation Gratitude Care Packages this year.

Your kindness touched the lives of 150,000 Troops in harm’s way, their Children anxiously awaiting at home, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors and their Care Givers.

But your thoughtfulness also touched countless others: Their loved ones who now know they are not alone in caring.

We could not do what we do for the troops without your ongoing support.

MoreGuideStar than 98% of all donations to Operation Gratitude are devoted to Program Services. Only 1.3% of funds raised is used for administrative and fundraising expenses.  We are very proud of these numbers and will continue to honor and respect the charitable intent of our donors.

Every tax deductible donation of $15 sends another care package.

Checks may be made payable and sent by mail to:

Operation Gratitude
P.O. Box 260257
Encino, CA 91426-0257  

Online donations can be made here: DONATE NOW

THANK YOU AGAIN for your generous year-round support!

All our best wishes to you and your loved ones for a very healthy, safe and blessed New Year. We look forward to celebrating our 10th Anniversary and One Millionth Care Package with you in 2013!

About Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home. Each package is filled with food, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, as well as personal letters of support. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the Military and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for civilians anywhere in America to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation. Each package contains donated product valued between $45 and $100 and costs our organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.6 Million Care Packages.
