Tell us more about why you support The Boot Campaign?

Boot Campaign doesn’t just raise money or tell heart wrenching stories. This organization does fun and exciting things to support our military and veterans and get all Americans involved. When celebrities don a pair of combats boots for a photoshoot or event they join a movement felt coast to coast.

What is the most annoying thing about people that don’t help charities and why?

I don’t know that this is annoying; the whole point of giving time or money is to buy into the idea. If there are people who don’t see this as a relevant thing to do, it truly is their loss, as we will keep reaching those that do participate!

And how important do you think it is for celebrities to get involved in charity?

Through their talents, celebrities have a unique opportunity to reach their audience with a message. Many celebrities have fan bases which are incredibly unique; having those celebrities join our cause means we will reach Americans who have no other connection to our Heroes but will now consider them, and hopefully support them.

What plans do you have to make an impact on society this year?

Boot Campaign has a full calendar this year with events and campaigns designed to awaken the patriot in every American we reach. Our message is simple, “this country is uniquely free and full of opportunity and we appreciate the men and women who have fought to keep it that way.”
