We started Shipthrifty to simplify shipping. To provide convenience, value and ease for people who aren’t shipping gurus. We set out to work with partners with an insight into the needs of the different audiences they serve, the challenges they face, and a desire to help. We are not a charity but wanted to give back to organizations who supported us through donations that came from our proceeds to help support their initiatives.
During a casual conversation between friends out golfing, one of our co-founders was asked if we could help a group of military soldiers and their families who were being deployed. What an honor to be asked… The request was to make shipping easier for him, his family and the others in the group who were being deployed. It started out small with this group, grew to be a larger opportunity within a state and is now moving across the country.
Since that day we found a passion to help not only military families, but those who support them as well. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to help people and organizations do more for those who serve our country. We feel so strongly about this we automatically donate a portion of our proceeds to help military families in need as well.
Each of our founders has had a close family member and friends who served in the military. They have had a big influence on shaping who we are as individuals and what we believe. Thank you to those who have served our country and protected our freedoms. We hope to have an impact in your lives and do something to give back.
