The annual Troopathon 2012 to benefit our brave men and women who are serving starts today at 4 pm. [eastern] The goal of Troopathon 2012 is to raise money in order to send care packages to these heroes.
From their website:
Never Forget about our Troops!
Want to do something that will REALLY help our troops? Join is us in sending support to America’s bravest!
There are currently over 130,000 troops still serving in Afghanistan, mostly US troops and some from other nations of the 50-member NATO coalition.
Our troops are serving in some of the most dangerous places to be in the world, where the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies continue to try and destabilize a nation to bring back a safe haven for radical Islamist extremists can train, plot, and launch attacks against the nations of the Western world, primarily the United States.
Our mission is to send care packages to support those brave troops! For as little as $25 you can send support to a Soldier, Marine, Airman, Sailor, or Guardsman serving overseas. Each package contains lots of goodies and helpful items that our troops appreciate, such as coffee, cookies, beef jerky, deodorant, wet wipes and more!
This is a wonderful cause that makes sure our brave men and women have some of the niceties that we take for granted. A little taste of normal on the battlefield.
You can help by visiting their website and making a donation today.
As Americans, we enjoy Liberties and Freedoms that most of the world only dreams of. We have those Liberties and Freedoms because brave men and women make huge sacrifices to protect them. They deserve some love from home.
