Take a look at it at This Link and get your blog out on the www even more than it is now!
Oh, and it doesn't technically have to be a "blog", it can be a website.
Won't cost you anything, but will get you hits!
I don’t have a blog or a website, but love the idea of a Troopathon. Made my donation for the Free Republic Team!
Okay, I donated to the Free Republic team by buying one of the care packages. Why doesn’t the Free Republic team show the amount raised?
They update it everyday at 4pm
It's Sacto and California so they may be in their own “time” zone
I think they work Saturdays, so it should show up soon I imagine.
I'll keep watch and rattle some cages if it doesn't show up a little later.
Oh, OK. I thought it was one of those automatic thingies that would show immediately. Thanks!
Thank you very much, jellybean!!
Thank you very much, seekthetruth!!
You’re welcome! But I still don’t see FR given any credit for money raised. Perhaps I did something wrong?
I’ll check it out and get back to you.
Must be a glitch!
Do I need to join a team for my donation to count? I’m willing to do that and purchase another pack if that’s what’s required.
I have an email out to the one coordinating that, and should hear from them today.
We WILL get all amounts coming from FR posted on their competition page one way or another!

Good intentions, bad execution. :-(
Ok. I wanted to help with coffee, but I will see what I can do with my other pocket.
Thank you very much!

God Bless Our Troops!!!!!!!!
Go to the competition page and buy a Care packages for the Troops and/or contact Syncro to sign up your blog. There's only a couple of days left.
Bloggers will split into teams, and each team will have a team captain who will formulate their team's strategy for outselling the competition.C'mon Freepers! I know we can beat the competition! The Hot Air Steamers may have a big head start, but I think we can take 'em!
The competition will end on June 25th at 7 pm PST--during the Troopathon webcast! We will select the winner based upon which team raised the most money for care packages, and we will announce the winner LIVE during the Troopathon.
New day...let’s go FReepers!!!!

THE LIVE STREAM IS HERE:
It is time to prove our mettle as troop supporters and give it our all. This is the moment when we can choose to make history and inspire the men and women of our military with our love for them.
Today from 4pm to midnight EST Melanie Morgan, Mark Williams and Andrew Breitbart will lead the web event of the year, bringing together top celebrities and troops on the ground to make our big final push to send the largest shipment of care packages to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
None of the celebrities will matter unless Americans like you step up and support our troops by sponsoring a care package today so we can break the record and make a strong statement in support of our troops.
On todays webcast, made possible by Ustream.tv, youll see the outpouring of support were experiencing from the top talkers on radio like Rush Limbaugh, major TV personalities like Greg Gutfeld, bloggers like Hot Airs Ed Morrissey, actors like Jon Voight, authors like Walid Phares, and pro-troop leaders like Pete Hegseth. Youll also get word from the battlefield as guests join us from Iraq and Afghanistan to give you the real stories that we dont hear enough of and attest to the meaningfulness of a package from home.
Our lineup of guests for this landmark event is truly unparalleled. Nowhere else can you find such a top-notch, broad and inclusive powerhouse of luminaries coming together on one day for one important cause, and that means we have a unique opportunity.
So join us and be a part of this momentous event. See all the details at Troopathon.org, watch the stream live from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library from 1pm to 9pm Pacific/4pm to midnight Eastern here, spread the word by telling a friend and please send care packages to our troops today.
Together, we can send the largest-ever shipment of goodies to our friends and neighbors serving in the military and fight Americas enemies around the world. We can do it, and they more than deserve it.
So help us make history and shower our troops with the largest shipment of love and care packages in history. There are a number of different sized care packages you can sponsor - whether you want to show your support for just a couple of our troops or a full Battalion or Company
