On June 25th, Move America Forward will be holding our 2nd annual “Troop-a-thon” titled “Honor their Service.”
This cutting edge live webcast event brings together talk radio hosts, megastars of film and television, musical guests, journalists, military and Gold-star families, pro-troop groups and many more.
The goal of this charity fundraiser is to send the largest ever shipment of care packages to our brave men and women of the armed forces serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay.
Viewers are encouraged to sponsor care packages (donations are tax deductible) for the troops and each one includes a personalized message and items that our troops have requested that make their life a little easier while they are far from home, such as sun-screen, Gatorade, deodorant, coffee, cookies and much more.
The star-studded line-up joining Melanie Morgan will include Vice President Cheney, Rush Limbaugh, Andrew Breitbart, Mark Levin, John Ondrasik, Laura Ingraham, etc., etc. etc.
p.s. you can donate now in advance of the web-a-thon!
Update: Blackfive has mailing info on how to send support to the families of Pvt. Long and Pvt. Ezeagwula, our America soldiers targeted by suspected jihadi Abdulhakim Muhammad.
Reader Naarah writes that the funeral home where Pvt. Long’s service will be held has advised callers that the family requests that donations be made to www.WoundedWarriorproject.org in lieu of flowers.
