Operation Gratitude is a nonprofit organization that “seeks to lift spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty and Veteran communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation to members of our Military.” The organization meets these goals by sending care packages stuffed with food, entertainment and personal letters. Each package costs only $15 to put together and since its start in 2003, Operation Gratitude has shipped over one million of these care packages.
One of the Operation Gratitude campaigns that caught our eye was that of Tom Connolly, and his plans to walk across the United States to raise money and awareness. Tom set out on his journey on April 25th, with the goal of raising $30,000 for the organization. After speaking with Tom we decided to get involved. We not only donated some apparel but also a portable solar panel charger, a USB battery power bank and a pair of our Lifetime Warranty indestructible GOgroove RNF headphones. In addition, we are also donating 0.25 cents per mile that Tom walks. We are doing everything we can to help Tom reach his goal of $30,000 and raise awareness for this amazing organization.
