About Operation Give:
Operation Give began when Paul, a member of the Utah Army National Guard, was activated and sent to Iraq in early spring, 2003. He began to send back emails, detailing his time and activities, to a friend back in Salt Lake City, who then created a Weblog (Blog) so that others could read Paul’s journal.
Paul’s family and some friends and co-workers began sending packages to Paul with items to make life in the desert, in the summer, more bearable. Paul began to share these with other GI’s in his group, and then even with the POW’s and townspeople of the area.
The genesis of Operation Give, Joys through Toys, began when Paul posted a story on his Blog about a little Iraqi girl he encountered. This story was also published in the bestselling book, “Collateral Kindness: The True Story of an Army Interrogator in Iraq.” This book can be ordered on Amazon and other major bookstores.
Operation Give participates in multiple mission on a yearly basis. Currently, they are raising 1 Million pounds of humanitarian supplies to ship to the Yazidi and Christian Refugees in Northern Iraq. You can learn more about this mission by visiting https://www.plumfund.com/charity-fundraising/OperationGive or www.operationgive.org
