Happy New Year

Dear Friends & Supporters of Total Courage:

Happy 2024!

Thank you for allowing me to take a few moments of your time on New Year’s Day.

2024 promises to be a year of Hope and Renewal.

Hope is the confident expectation that something good is going to happen in your life or in the lives of others.

Renewal is about resuming our work in the face of adversity with positivity, enthusiasm and character, above all.

We are strengthened by Faith, encouraged by Hope and motivated by Love.

Our work serving the displaced and indigent citizens of Ukraine, Maui and Israel under austere and challenging conditions has been both humbling and rewarding.

We are grateful that we are able to improve our service to others and be good stewards of your resources by leveraging emerging supply chain solutions and developing secure networks of selfless servants.

I would be remiss if I did not recognize our International Relief Coordinator, George Jinjalia. We are so blessed to have George, his wife, Lile and their fine boys as part of our family and team. They have a ‘no mission too difficult, no sacrifice too great’ attitude and they inspire us daily.

As always, we appreciate your feedback and your ownership in our organization. The only dumb question is the one that you fail to ask as we strive to be the best at what we do.

Again, thank you.

Serving with Character!




Total Courage volunteers brave indiscriminate rocket fire to help displaced Israeli citizens.

Israel remains under attack from multiple fronts. Please help us provide immediate disaster relief to displaced families that have lost their homes due to rocket attacks and fire. We are specifically delivering food, bedding, medicines, clothing and sundry items to victims and host families.

Pray For Israel

Dear Friends:

Our mission in Kherson, Ukraine continues. Operation Hearth is placing woodstoves in hasty shelters for displaced flood victims. We are blessed to have a wonderful Christian missionary who is a former West Point grad distributing these stoves for us. The families are so grateful!

In light of the despicable and unthinkable attacks on the citizens of Israel, Total Courage finds itself at the tip of the spear once again. Due to our network of former military officers and, ironically, West Point graduates we have a reliable supply chain capability in Tel Aviv.

We have already identified 83 families that have been displaced by rocket fire and house fires. Our team on the ground will locally procure bedding, clothes, food, meds and sundry items to serve them and their host families throughout Israel.

As volunteers, we pride ourselves on maximizing every donated dollar to serve the displaced, indigent and infirmed wherever we are called to serve. Please help us establish an enduring footprint in Israel.

Our initial requirement is $200,000 and every dollar counts.

Serving with Character,


Maui Fire Victims In Need Of Humanitarian Assistance

This past week one of our Total Courage teammates, Jay Ayala, was contacted by Pele Chong who is a citizen of Maui, to see if we could serve the victims of the Lahaina fire.  Out of the goodness of her heart Pele has opened her home to nine homeless victims of the Lahaina fire. Yes, the government is providing some support but there is no way it can replace all that was lost.

As all of you know we drive out the cost of the supply chain by purchasing locally as best we can and then placing the right items at the right time into the hands of those who need it the most.

Please help us help these families! Mahalo!

ps. – If you would like to know more about these families please reach out to me personally. Their stories of survival are both daunting and heroic.

Below are pictures of the families that Pele is housing.

Our Total Courage Team Was Pleased To Deliver These Generators To Multiple Families In The Chernihiv Region In Northern Ukraine. Russian Missiles Have Completely Destroyed The Power Grid But Now These Families Can Have Electric Heat At Night, They Can Prep Hot Water For Bathing, And Cook Meals Inside Rather Than On A Fire Outside In The Elements. We Were Also Pleased To Provide Art Supplies And Toys For The Little Ones To Distract Them From The Violence And Hardship That They Have Experienced. Our Team Is Comprised Of Former Military Officers And I Can Tell You That It Brought Tears Their Eyes. Thank You To Our Generous Donors. We Love You!

None of our work in the Ukraine could be done without the selfless leadership of George Jinjalia. George is a husband and father of three children and a former West Point graduate. His family remains in the Republic of Georgia waiting for his safe return as he provides humanitarian assistance to those most in need in Ukraine. We love you, George!

2022 Recap And Current Goals For 2023

Dear friends of Total Courage:

I hope that 2023 has started off in your favor. Thanks for your continued love, prayers and support.

2022 was a very productive year for our team. We wrapped up operations in the Republic of Georgia with a real bang by hosting the largest STEM Summer Camp for Girls in the country! A huge success!

Also, thanks to you, we provided individual first aid kits to first responders in Lviv and Kyiv, Ukraine. Our supply chain was supported by former Georgian Army officers, retired French Foreign Legion officers and the Protestant Church in Poland! What a success!

Additionally, we were able to re-open a small, partially damaged Ukrainian textile factory and manufacture Teddy Bears, coats, hats and gloves for children and distribute them to needy families often under fire and experiencing hazardous conditions in and around Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine.
Very proud of that courageous team effort.

I promised all of you that I would never reach out to you without a fully prepared and vetted humanitarian assistance plan. We pride ourselves on a 97% operating ratio. Less than 3% of your donated funds are used for administrative costs.

This next mission is our biggest to date. We are providing one hundred 5000 Watt to 7500 Watt generators to Ukraine. Supply Chain custody at each node and mode is watertight.

Over 90% of the eastern region has no electric power to heat medical clinics, sleeping areas or kitchens. Families are literally freezing with sustained below-zero temperatures.

One generator can provide enough heat for 30 to 40 displaced people to sleep in subterranean basements and hallways, etc. Fuel availability is not a problem but electric power is nonexistent.

Generators fill the gap.
Power generation means life or death in such brutal winter conditions.

Please, spread the word and support this crisis response in the face of Russian aggression.

Again, thank you.
