Advocating on Behalf of the American Military and Defense on the War on Terror

The competition for a blog team to send the largest amount of care packages to our troops is beginning to heat up, and we’ve still got over a week to go!

Ed Morrissey’s Hot Air Steamers team continues to hold first place with $4,844.48 for care packages and Robert Spencer’s Anti-Jihadists team is in second with $2,574.66.

In the last 24 hours we’ve added many new blogs to the team rosters, proving that this competition will continue to shake-up!

Tomorrow we’re going to award a special prize to the team that brings in the most contributions between 12:01 pm PST NOON 6/18/09 and 11:59 am PST NOON 6/19/09—that’s right, a DAILY PRIZE. The prize for tomorrow will be a $10 Starbucks card for every blog on the winning team (note: you can still join an existing blog team—but only those teams already listed on the roster at the time of this email will be eligible for tomorrow’s prize).

Anybody can win—it’s an absolutely clean slate for the daily prize! And remember, in this competition we’re all winners—especially the troops!

If you haven’t signed up already—get involved now! There is still plenty of time to start your own team or join an existing one. Check out the latest roster on the competition home page here.

Also, we’ve added a special button option for smaller contributions, if you would like to give your readers that option please let me know and I can send you the code for that button.

And remember to monitor the TroopAThon website page for the latest program updates. We just confirmed Ann Coulter!
