Join the Say “Thank You” Selfie Challenge

Post your selfies and use the hashtags #SayThankYouSelfie and #OperationGratitude

After an amazing response during Military Appreciation Month, Operation Gratitude is continuing the Say “Thank You” Selfie Challenge through September 11, 2019, encouraging grateful Americans to demonstrate their appreciation for our nation’s Military and First Responders in a tangible way.

Post a photo or video on their favorite social media account, with a special message to U.S. Service Members and Veterans. Tag your family and friends, and challenge them to share their own selfie and message! All posts and tweets should include the hashtags #SayThankYouSelfie and #OperationGratitude.

Every photo we receive as part of the #SayThankYouSelfie Challenge will be captured in Operation Gratitude’s Special Edition Magazine, to be included with more than a half million Care Packages we send each year. Imagine the impact of this simple action and how much our Care Package recipients will appreciate seeing a collection of photos from grateful Americans all across the nation.

We hope you will join us and express your appreciation through the #SayThankYouSelfie Challenge.

Channeling the Holiday Spirit this Summer

Amidst the heat of the summer, an image of logs crackling in the fireplace and casting a glow on stockings hung above is probably the last thing to come to mind for most people. But for Operation Gratitude and our growing army of volunteers nationwide, the holiday spirit is always in our thoughts.

More Than Just a Hug

When I look back at my journey over the past 3 years and 8 months as the CEO of Operation Gratitude, the one thing that sticks out the most are the hugs.

They are etched in my memory forever — literally thousands of hugs at hundreds of service projects and community-building events — on too many trips, and in too many cities to count, from sea to shining sea.
