What is Troopathon?
Our Troopathon is groundbreaking and innovative in that we bring together famous celebrities from radio, television, the movie, musicians, journalists, and more to create a one-of-a-kind event with one purpose - to support our troops on the front lines in the war on terror and honor their service and sacrifice for our nation. It’s like a “Jerry Lewis-style” telethon but on the web for a most worthy cause.As has been the case for the last two years, I'm proud to be affiliated with this cause by being a part of the blogger competition. I'm a part of "Team COINS" (Counter Insurgency), along with fellow blogs American Thinker, Liberty Chick and Ladies Logic.
The goal of Troopathon is simple: Send care packages to our troops, as many as we can get sponsored in a single 8-hour show. In our first year (2008) our inaugural program brought in over $1.5 million for care packages for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was the single largest shipment of care packages ever recorded. Over the succeeding two years, our innovative webcasts have raised over $2 Million for our troops. Since our organization began sending care packages in 2006, we've sent over 168 TONS of high quality beef jerky, Gatorade, Oreo cookies and gourmet coffee to our troops, and that's just the beginning!
What makes Troopathon such a success, and an exciting event for our troops and our supporters, is the star power we bring out! In our Troopathons we've been proud to have such participants as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Mark Levin, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Laura Ingraham, Gary Sinise, Jon Voight, Kevin Farley, John Ondrasik of the band Five for Fighting, Oliver North, President George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Dr. David Horowitz, Carrie Prejean and many, many more!
Between now and June 23rd, you can click on the Troopathon logo at the top of the sidebar and choose any the type of care package you'd like to send our troops as a "Thank You" for their service.
Thank you in advance...and most importantly, you'll be thanking the troops.
