About The Boot Campaign

The Boot Campaign is a 501c3 non-profit military appreciation and veteran awareness campaign based in Texas.  Launched in 2009 by a group of women known as The Boot Girls, the Boot Campaign’s mission is to express gratitude to the troops, spread awareness of the needs of military personnel and support their transition home.  Through the sale of signature military combat boots, the Boot Campaign donates proceeds to a group of partner charities that work directly with military personnel, past and present, healing from a variety of physical and emotional combat wounds, embodying the campaign motto that, “When They Come Back, We Give Back”.  www.BootCampaign.com
