A ONE OF A KIND APPRECIATION EVENT.
Closing the gap between Community and First Responders.
Back The Badge Giving Tree Foundation: a unique event that provides community members the opportunity to show their local First Responders appreciation and support. Simply put, an event for a community to say “Thank You” to the men & women that dedicate their lives to keeping their communities safe.
Back The Badge Giving Tree Foundation is a start-up non-profit that was founded in 2020, in the heart of Payne County in Stillwater, Oklahoma. We received an overwhelming amount of positive attention from California to North Carolina, from Michigan to Houston, and almost everywhere in between. We knew we were onto something special and moved quickly to get everything in order with the state of Oklahoma and the IRS to form a non-profit 501(c)3. The State of Oklahoma has recognized us as an official foundation and our 501(c)3 status is still currently pending with the IRS.
We are an Electronic Christmas Angel Tree event.....
In our first year, we served over 311 Stillwater First Responders including Stillwater PD & FD, PCSO, OSU PD, Lifenet, Stillwater residents with the OHP, & Payne County’s only Oklahoma Game Warden. In a time that the media and nation are calling for everything but support for First Responders we provided a way for the community to “hold the line” and “silence the hate” even for one day. To stand up and shout our motto “We love you, We respect you, and if need to be WE WILL protect you”
By nominating your town or city to bring the Back The Badge Giving Tree Foundation into your community you will help your community “hold the line” and “silence the hate” for YOUR First Responders. By nominating and being selected, you will also be playing a good role in supporting unity for all within your community.
