I’m a little late with this follow-up to the Troop-a-thon on June 25, organized by our friends at Move America Forward, but we’re pleased to announce that almost $700,000 was raised for our troops, including over $55,000 by several teams of bloggers, with whom we were proud to participate. We’d like to issue a special “Thank You” to all those who donated. At the time of this writing, the 8 hour Troop-a-thon broadcast, which took place at the Ronald Reagon Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, is available at the Troop-a-thon website.
Please keep in mind that you can still contribute and send care packages to our troops by clicking on the banner at the top of this post. They are filled with goodies that will boost morale and give our hard fighting military men and women a refreshing break during their difficult deployments. Best of all, each care package comes with your personal note of encouragement or thanks to the serviceman or servicewoman who receives your care package. Thanks again for supporting our troops.
