The Boot Campaign
When five Texas women decide they’re going to do something, you can either get on board or get out of the way. After reading fellow Texan Marcus Luttrell’s bestselling book Lone Survivor, they all agreed on one thing: it was time to give back to those who afford us all the freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Since its inception in 2009, the Boot Campaign blazed a trail in the nonprofit world, giving more than $2 million annually to help servicemembers, veterans, and their families from every generation.
