A quick plug for a wonderful event, the "Honor their Service" Annual Troopathon 2009 is currently raising money and care packages to honor and support our troops. Move America Forward (MAF) is a 501(c)(3) organization whose focus is on Honoring and Supporting our Troops currently serving our country overseas.
In the first Troopathon last year, MAF raised over $1.5 million dollars and shipped more than 10,000 care packages to service men and women serving in the Middle East. In addition to the troopathon, they send offer care packages to troops throughout the year during several holiday seasons. This year, they expect this second troopathon to be even more successful.
If you want to show the troops your support and are looking for a way to Honor them for their sacrifice and service, visit their website today, Move America Forward, and purchase a care package of any size. You can personalize a message to be included with your package for the person who receives it.
Let's all take a moment to say Thank You for our freedom and safety. They deserve it, and so much more.
*Update* Even if you missed donating during the Troopathon, they are always accepting donations for care packages! Visit their website now to let the troops know you care.
