The Boot Campaign is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to Cultivating Awareness, Promoting Patriotism, and Providing Assistance to military personnel, past and present, and their families.
Started in 2009 by five women from Texas known as the Original Boot Girls, the Boot Campaign encourages Americans to “get their BOOTS ON” as an easy and tangible way to express one’s Patriotism and Gratitude for all who serve.
Proceeds from all Boot Campaign combat boot sales, events, direct donations and corporate sponsorships fund the campaign’s five Assistance initiatives: Jobs, Housing, Wellness, Urgent Assistance, and Family Support.
