TurboTax Reaches Goal To Help US Troops
Intuit TurboTax recently announced that they have exceeded their $2 million goal to support US troops. This campaign was launched in part with Mission2Match and Operation Homefront and raised over $1 million from direct donations alone. The money will be used to support U.S. troops and their families.
Operation Homefront is a countrywide non-profit association. Since its humble beginnings in 2002, this organization has helped more than 590,000 military families. With 94 percent of donated revenue going directly to help service members and their families, this charity has a four-star rating with Charity Navigator, a charity watchdog.
Monies were raised each time a donation was made to Mission2Match through online TurboTax. However, donations went even further with the help of social media. Each time donors tweeted #mission2match, their donation was matched.
TurboTax has a long been a financial supporter of military members and their families. They are proud of their partnership with their customers as well as Operation Homefront. Money raised goes to help families of troops who have been wounded or otherwise unable to work after returning home, such as Air Force Sgt. Angelo Rodriguez who lost his memory after his time serving and could no longer walk or talk. Thanks to generous donations, Rodriguez and his family now have a place to live and a fresh beginning. Many other military members and families will directly benefit from the generous donations of Turbo Tax users. These donations are a very tangible way to express thanks and support to U.S. troops.
