The Ramsey Family Foundation is showing support for United States military personnel. Today it was announced that the Foundation will donate 10,000 copies of Dave Ramsey's Complete Guide to Money, to Operation Troop Aid (OTA). The non-profit organization will include the book in bundled care packages that will be shipped to our men and women in uniform serving overseas and our wounded at Walter Reed Medical Center, as well as chaplains around the nation that present financial workshops. The Ramsey Family Foundation was created by radio talk show host and best-selling author Dave Ramsey and his family.
"We are extremely grateful for Dave's show of support to Troop Aid," says OTA CEO Mark Woods. "His generosity has just touched the lives of 10,000 troops. I am humbled by his exemplary effort to help our cause."
Ramsey's donation equates to more than $215,00.00 in product.
"Thank you for your service to our country. Military life isn't easy, that's for sure. More than half of enlisted personnel report difficulty with their finances," Ramsey said. "As a way of saying thank you, and in an effort to help military members and their families, we are pleased to donate 10,000 copies of The Complete Guide to Money. We hope it will be a blessing to all the brave men and women of America's armed forces."
On Friday, OTA's Mark Woods appeared live on the Fox Business Network's Varney & Co. View the full segment HERE.
To date, OTA has sent nearly $11 million dollars in care package products to the troops. To donate to the cause, visit operationtroopaid.org and "like" the organization's official Facebook Page.
About Operation Troop Aid
Operation Troop Aid is an IRS-certified non-profit 501c3 and Combined Federal Campaign member CFC#26493. Founded in 2004 by 21-year military veteran, Mark Woods, OTA partners with entertainment initiatives and provides care packages for U.S. service members with revenue generated through professional event promotions and public financial generosity. OTA strives to make a positive difference and inspire the armed forces by letting them know Americans stand with them. As an entertainment based charity, each year OTA selects and presents The Operation Troop Aid Patriot Award to an entertainer / artist that best exemplifies the spirit of patriotic service to our troops and Americanism in their art. It does not necessarily reflect events in that year, as it may be a historical grouping of their achievements to promote our troops and American patriotism. It is an award that embodies a sense of service, supporting our American troops and an overall outlook of honoring our constitution and promoting the freedom that our troops provide.
