To bring a little joy and femininity to our active duty, deployed, US servicewomen through care packages geared for women.
In support of the 200,000+ female servicemembers, Operation Courage is Beautiful care packages sends high-quality female-oriented personal care products and reading materials to servicemembers deployed abroad. Requests for these free care packages are made by the servicewoman herself, a colleague, friend or family member by simply making a request via our online form.
We ask the public to help us with donations of products and funds to support this program. Our program is 100% volunteer and donation-based. Donations may be made online or via mail. We also encourage you to spread the word about our program so that we can reach as many servicewomen as possible.
Whether you are an individual wanting to volunteer, a school club wanting to do a community service project or a corporation trying to fulfill your corporate social responsibility/employee volunteer program, we can use your help. Our organization needs a balance of fundraising money, product donations and volunteer hours to construct care packages. See our how to help page and contact us!
