Troopathon 2013 – Two days to support our troops overseas

During the last few years, we’ve done our small part to support Move America Forward’s Troopathon donation drive. The one-day live event is tomorrow, but the official donation drive started a couple of weeks ago. We’re way behind – will you help today?

In 2011, our online team – the Greyhawks – peaked with more than $19,000 in donations collected during a one month period. Since the 2009 event, I calculate Radio Vice Online readers and listeners to Jim’s show helped contribute more than $40,000 for Troopathon. Help again this year – click here to get to our secure donation page.

You can help make the daily routine of our troops serving in Afghanistan a little more bearable and thank them for their services all at the same time.
