Wondering What’s on Our 2018 “Wish List”?

We’re not keeping it a secret…we absolutely depend on item and financial donations to continue our work to support deployed troops, the children they leave behind, military veterans, new recruits and emergency first responders.

Operation Gratitude Wish List

To make giving as simple as possible, we  have a “Wish List” on Amazon.com! Socks, paperback books, different types of individually-packaged, travel-size hygiene items, 550 lb. paracord, sunscreen wipes, DVD movies, Beanie Babies, and MORE all made the list.

What’s great about this Amazon.com “Wish List” is that our supporters can easily see what we need for our care packages and place an order online without having to deal with the hassle of boxing up and shipping the items to us — Amazon.com and the various vendors take care of all that, and many of the items qualify for FREE shipping!

An added bonus — when you choose to support our charity through the AmazonSmile program, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to Operation Gratitude!

We still have our regular “Wish List” posted on our website. Find our shipping and important donation information online here.

Check out our “Wish List” Pinterest board (and ideas of the types of items we’re wishing for) here: {what’s on our “wish list”}

We are grateful to ALL of our donors — we couldn’t do what we do without you!

As always, THANK YOU for your support!


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.

    Do I understand correctly.. If I order something from Amazon for Operation Gratitude I can have them ship directly to you without a donation form? I would just give them your CA address?

    • Amazon.com has our address on file and would ship to us directly, so in order to be sure you receive a receipt for your donation, you’ll need to fill out a donation form and indicate that the items are coming from Amazon.com (or one of Amazon’s vendors). If you can also include the Amazon order number, date of purchase, and any other pertinent information, that would be very helpful. THANK YOU! If you have additional questions, please let us know by sending an email to Info@OperationGratitude.com and we’ll get back to you asap.

    How does our organization know how much of each item is needed so that our employees aren’t all buying the same thing.

    What if I already have never used Beanie Babies and want to donate them?

    Hi, I’m in Australia, and would love to send over packets of timtams – do you think they would like that?

    • Thank you for your support, Bianca! As far as I know we don’t have TimTams here at all — I had to look them up to see what they are. They look delicious! Since the cookies are made with chocolate, there are just a couple months out of the year (October – November) when we could accept them as donations, since in transit to us or to the troops they’d be in danger of melting.
