Standing for our Soldiers – Troopathon 2010 begins!

The eight hour live Troopathon 2010 event begins at 4 p.m. ET on July 1, but you can join in and show your support by purchasing a care package or two – or 25 – today! Last year, the Troopathon raised more than $600,000 in donations. Are you up to the challenge? Our troops are, so let’s not let them down.

Ron Winter

You can help make the daily routine of our troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq a little more bearable and thank them for their services all at the same time. Once again this year, Radio Vice Online has joined up with Ron Winter to form the cornerstone of Team Greyhawk.

Sure, the Troopathon live event begins on July 1, but our special effort for this event runs for the next 10 days … so our drive for care packages starts today!

Why Send Care Packages?
We’ve heard from countless members of the Armed Forces serving in the Middle East about items that the military does not provide, are hard to come by and they really appreciate getting . That’s why Move America Forward has responded and compiled care packages that contain these goods as a way of saying “thank you” for their sacrifices and courage. Care packages are packed full of gourmet coffee, Oreo cookies, Jelly Belly jelly beans, high-quality beef jerky, trial mix, Gatorade, deodorant, Chap Stick, sun block, CDs and much more.

Most importantly, each care package will include a personal message written by you where you can express your gratitude to our military. This is done through the order form by putting your message in the Comments box. Along with your message will be included a “self-addressed” envelope for the troops to send you a Thank You note if, and when, they have time. This is done through the order form by putting your address in the Ship To field. Rest assured that all care packages are sent to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Move America Forward is a 501(C)3 so all care package donations are tax deductible.

Care Packages include mostly Coffee, Oreo Cookies, lip balm, beef jerky, deodorant, trail mix, Gatorade, CDs and Jelly Beans but could include any or all of the following:

    Thanks Steve for making this so easy to donate. I regret that I procrastinate too much. The troops deserve better. I wish them all the best.
