Red, white, & blue

paracord Bracelet

challenge!

Are you ready for a patriotic challenge? Did you know that our COO Paul can make 40 paracord “survival” bracelets in one hour! Do you think you can beat that?

We’re about to find out!

Starting June 20 through July 5, Operation Gratitude is challenging you to a 16-day red, white, & blue paracord bracelet challenge!
 

All of the paracord bracelets made during this challenge will be included in Operation Gratitude Care Packages on July 20, when hundreds of volunteers will come together to assemble more than 10,000 Care Packages for Deployed Troops, Veterans, and First Responders.

Take the #SayThankYouSelfie Challenge

With the overwhelming response we received from grateful Americans during Military Appreciation Month, Operation Gratitude is continuing the #SayThankYouSelfie Challenge through September 11. Make sure to include the hashtags #SayThankYouSelfie and #OperationGratitude — and nominate your friends and family members to challenge them to share their own Say “Thank You” Selfie, too. Images and posts that use these hashtags will be published in a Special Edition Magazine and included in half a million Operation Gratitude Care Packages.

The Care Package that was sent to me was very appreciated. From the toothpaste, hygiene items, and the snacks, I can tell you none of it went to waste. We are all so thankful to have awesome Americans back home who haven’t forgotten about us–people who take time out of their busy day to do something nice for others they will never meet or possibly ever hear from.”
