Here's a history lesson for you. Did you know that we coined the term "care package" when 22 American charities came together to form CARE? We got our start by delivering CARE packages to war-torn Europe in 1946. 

Many CARE package recipients became long-time supporters of CARE, like Marta Edie (left) who received a CARE package from her future husband while she was living in Germany. To this day, she still enjoys the same brand of cream crackers (Jacob's) that she received in her package!
