About Boots, Birds and Birdies


About Boots, Birds and Birdies
“I have always felt guilty that so many men and women were sacrificing for my freedom, facing the enemy all over the world. I’m too old and slow to fight, but I could take the time to offer support and financial assistance. When my wife Pam and I committed to support our service heroes, we wanted to find an organization that was not just focused on themselves. Boot Campaign met all our criteria, including veteran support internally and externally, volunteer founders, openness to help other charities with like interests and most importantly, giving to deserving veterans that are vetted.

I know south Texas, especially Atascosa County, is going to be so proud of the Boots, Birds and Birdies event. South Texas residents are extremely self-sufficient and amazingly giving of their hearts and their wallets. Patriotism is very much in the hearts of south Texans and has always been since. So many people want to give back but are not sure how or are not sure where their hard-earned money will be spent the most wisely. I personally stand beside Boot Campaign and their ethics in issuing funds to heroes in need. We cannot wait to be a small part with so many others that will join together to serve those who have served us.” John Hughes


There’s a way for everyone to help make Boots, Birds & Birdies a success!

Boot Campaign is dedicated to promoting patriotism for America and our military community; raising awareness of the unique challenges service members face during and post-service; and providing assistance to military personnel, past and present, and their families. Retail sales of combat boots, apparel and mission-focused merchandise, general public donations and corporate sponsorships fund programs that support military families. These efforts extend to all generations of military personnel who endure significant physical, emotional and circumstantial hardships resulting from their service and sacrifice.
