OK, it will look much better than that, I couldn't grab all the source!

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?

Thanks jellybean!

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.

You’re welcome! But I still don’t see FR given any credit for money raised. Perhaps I did something wrong?

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 don't know whats up with the amounts not being shown as a $ amount for our team on their shootout page.

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!

I'm not sure if I understand your post or not, and the link is kinda crazy.

What we are doing here is having FR members click on the graphics in This Thread to purchase goodies for the troops through Move America Forward's Annual Troopathon.

Go to that thread and help out the troops fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan by sending a package or two to them!

Mega ping to all my ping lists.

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE 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.

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.

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!

SHOWTIME!

Our Troops Are Fighting to Protect Us
The Time is NOW to Support our Troops


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.


Our troops count on your support at critical moments like these.

On today’s webcast, made possible by Ustream.tv, you’ll see the outpouring of support we’re experiencing from the top talkers on radio like Rush Limbaugh, major TV personalities like Greg Gutfeld, bloggers like Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey, actors like Jon Voight, authors like Walid Phares, and pro-troop leaders like Pete Hegseth. You’ll also get word from the battlefield as guests join us from Iraq and Afghanistan to give you the real stories that we don’t 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.
 


Our All-Star lineup will give us a shot at making history today.


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 America’s 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

The hotlinks in the post above that go directly to the donation page will give credit to Free Republic in the Blogger Shootout Competition.

Great pictures, D1! I will look at the rest of them later, gotta hit the road soon.
The final tabulation of the Blogger Shootout!

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE HOT AIR STEAMERS!

Our leaders from the very beginning pulled off an inspiring win in our very first blogger shootout-congratulations to Ed Morrisey and his Hot Air Steamers team!  After completing our final tabulation, the Hot Air Steamers brought in $24,704.36 for care packages!

Ron Winter and his Greyhawks pulled off second, bringing in an amazing $17,146.06-most in the final hours of the competition. Robert Spencer's Anti-Jihadists came in third with $9,298.72 for care packages.

It was a fantastic competition, thank you for your participation-your hard work will go far in sending care packages to our brave troops overseas.

Mr. Captn Syncro and Free Republic came in fourth with a total of $1,249.78 for care packages.
And Ms. Nancy with Family Security Matters finished fifth, bringing in $849.91. And, Marc Danziger and his Team COINS finished in sixth with $124.98. But remember, everyone was a winner in this competition-and we're so grateful for all your help! Thank you!

Cheers!

Erica Anderson
Move America Forward

A big THANK YOU to all the FR people that donated to the Troops!
