100% of Your Donation Delivers Smiles
Help us send dog tags to our troops currently serving in harm's way so they can send them to their kids back home!
This is a grassroots effort to show our support for the troops and their families. We tried to think of something we could send Dad or Mom that they could easily send back to their kids. This is something easy to ship and something the kids can hang on to until Dad or Mom gets back home.
Your donation will help send a tag in the appropriate service color to an appreciative service member. There is NO charge to the service member or their family for these tags. As of the middle of May, 2013, we have sent over 754,400 tags to the troops overseas to send home to their children. Please help us make a difference and thank our troops by putting a smile on their kid's faces!
The Story Behind The Effort
We heard a story about a soldier who was in Iraq, and he wanted to send his kids a package. They were so excited to receive it because they got
something from Dad who had been away for some time. He sent the only things he had access
to: a couple of band aids and some sun screen. The kids
didn't care, after all, it came from Dad!!
We tried to think of something we could send Mom or Dad that they could easily send back to their kids. What soldier's child doesn't want a dog tag of their own, especially one like Mom or Dad wears?
The older kids can put it on their key rings, the little ones can put it on their back pack or jacket zippers and the middle kids can actually wear it since we are sending them all with chains.

Letters and Quotes
"Our Dog Tags arrived here in Iraq yesterday, 11 April 2008. They are
SUCH a hit with our deployed members!! Thank you so much. I feel like
Santa Claus when I hand them out to the members to mail home to their
children. Thank you again for such a wonderful program - if the kids' eyes light
up only half as much when they receive them in the mail as the deployed
fathers and mothers eyes did when I gave them to them, it will be
