Mark Steines Is Inspiring Americans to Express Patriotism, Gratitude for Troops!
Television Host Mark Steines is lacing up his Boot Campaign combat boots to express his gratitude for the 1.4 million men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Mark’s official “boot shoot” can now be seen on http://BootCampaign.com. By posing in combat boots, Mark’s photo awakens Americans to the necessity of honoring the service and sacrifice of our nation’s military. The Boot Campaign is a national 501c3 nonprofit based in Texas that is dedicated to cultivating awareness, promoting patriotism, and providing assistance to military, past and present, and their families.
Mark was introduced to the Boot Campaign in 2013 when he and his “Home and Family” co-host Cristina Ferrare did their first “boot shoot” along with Boot Campaign Hero Ambassador Johnny “Joey” Jones (USMC Ret.). He has also lent his voice to a video highlighting the partnership of Boot Campaign and Veterans United.
With the release of his official “When They Come Back, We Give Back” boot photo, Mark joins a growing chorus of more than 400 actors, musicians, professional athletes, politicians and other news makers in lacing up boots to awaken the patriot in all Americans. The Boot Campaign encourages Americans to purchase and wear a pair of its signature combat boots as a tangible expression of gratitude for U.S. military personnel. Proceeds from the sale of these signature combat boots are used to fund the Boot Campaign’s mission of awareness, patriotism and assistance.
