Background information here, for more about Troopathon.
Troopathon is a once-a-year event held by Move America Forward (MAF) which is a non-profit charity dedicated to serving those who protect us: our brave troops. Troopathon 6 is a month-long care package drive that culminates in a star-studded 8-hour web-a-thon broadcast. This year’s broadcast will go live on June 27th from the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA.
Some Useful Facts About Troopathon:
Troopathon is a non-partisan non-political effort. We work with celebrities from Hollywood, television, the music industry, sports heroes and athletes, bloggers, journalists, radio personalities, academics, experts in the field, and elected officials to bring together a wide variety of guests to support our troops.
Past Troopathon events have raised over $3.5 million for our troops. Last year, Troopathon 5 raised over $420,000 but we’d like to break that total this year!
Last year’s Troopathon was hosted by Melanie Morgan who continues to be a voice for our troops through her career behind the microphone at KSFO radio in San Francisco. She was joined by former Congressman J.D. Hayworth, radio host and Fox News contributor Dana Loesch, and Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee. Until his sad passing, Andrew Breitbart was a close member of the Troopathon family and co-hosted every year.Some of the names who will take part in this year's Troopathon include two good friends of this blog, Melanie Morgan and Larry O'Connor, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Gary Sinise, S.E. Cupp, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and (just announced) Gene Simmons of the rock band KISS.
