"when they come back, we give back"

I've been following the boot girls over at Boot Campaign for quite awhile now. I love everything about their cause and who they are. Their mission:

The Boot Campaign was created to generate American awareness about the needs of our military men and women coming home from combat. The money raised from boot sales will go to nonprofit organizations that best serve combat veterans.

Our military heroes volunteered to put themselves in dangerous, life-threatening situations to preserve human freedom. The Boot Campaign motto is simple…“When they come back, we give back.” The Boot Girls want every person within reach of our website to tangibly give back to our
troops by buying a pair of combat boots and proudly wearing or displaying them.

Buy a pair of combat boots for $129.99, and $50.00 goes to support our veterans (THE USO, Lone Survivor Foundation, and Military Warriors Support Foundation). Can't beat that with a stick.

For months I've had my name on their list for a pair of boots. And today--just in time for Independence Day--I received word: My boots will ship mid-July!

  2. I really do think that more celebrities should join this effort, lend their star status and names to this worthwhile campaign!
