As part of her effort to thank the troops who are fighting for America at home or abroad, Dolly Parton is lending her star power to the Boot Campaign.
The Boot Campaign was started by 5 texas women known as The Boot Girls, who are urging Americans to purchase a pair of army combat boots to wear in support of our troops.
The proceeds from the campaign’s signature boots go towards military charities supporting the needs of Veterans.
Dolly expressed her appreciation to America's troops in a statement, saying:
“So many people, regular folks and celebrities, send out love and sincere thanks to you for keeping us safe and fighting for our freedom. Let me add to that loving list. Thank you from the bottom of my country heart. I will always love you.”
Dolly and the Boot Girls are asking Americans to put their boots on during their day-to-day routine to symbolically walk in the shoes of our military men and women to remember their service and sacrifice.
We think this is an awesome idea for a charity and if you do too, click here to get yourself a pair of boots!
