ShipThrifty was founded in 2017 by American Legion Family members Rob and Michelle Williamson, who simplified the process of shipping for individuals and businesses by allowing shippers a cost-saving and hassle-free way to create, purchase and print their own shipping labels online with major carriers. A year later, they provided those same ShipThrifty benefits with military families to make shipping care packages to servicemembers overseas and stateside easy. Since then, hundreds of thousands of care packages have been delivered to America’s military men and women to boost morale and bring those away from home a piece of home.

The American Legion and ShipThrifty have formed a partnership to continue caring for servicemembers through the shipping of care packages and the Legion’s Be the One suicide prevention initiative.
