If you click on any of the links below to donate for a package for the troops, it will count for Free Republic as the "blog" that donated. Last year Free Republic came in fourth with a total of $1,249.78 for care packages.

We have 8 days, let's see if we can do better this year!

DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER AND LARS LARSON JOIN TROOPATHON CAMPAIGN

We at Move America Forward have more terrific news to share with all of you!  Two more stars are joining the July 1st Third Annual Troopathon at the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library in California.

Radio talk show hosts Dr. Laura Schlessinger and Lars Larson have BOTH joined our campaign to send the largest single shipment of care packages to U.S. troops in history!

Please help our campaign succeed by helping us reach our goal of sending the largest shipment of care packages in history – send some care packages right now!

 

There are only nine days left before the historic Troopathon begins – an 8 hour webathon that proves to our troops that
the American people stand behind them – even if the politicians are letting them down.  Please tell everyone on your email list of this important event and why they have to be Standing for Our Troops.

Dr. Laura
 Dr. Laura is has one of the most popular radio talk shows around and reaches out to a very diverse group of audiences. Her unique show blends social and political commentary with listeners calling in with problems and seeking Dr. Laura’s advice.

She reaches an amazing 9 million listeners weekly. Dr. Laura is also an accomplished author, having published 11 books.
 Lars Larson has been in radio since he was 16 years old, starting in a small station in Tillamook County, Oregon and eventually rising to become the top show in the Pacific Northwest. Lars dominates Oregon through his Portland home station and 18 satellites throughout the state.

Right after his Northeastern show ends, he starts up his SECOND show, where he is nationally syndicated! That’s seven hours a day on the radio – Lars Larson works hard!
 
Lars Larson

Dr. Laura and Lars Larson are joining an already impressive cast of talk radio hosts, TV personalities, and Hollywood celebrities who have all pledged their support for the Troopathon campaign to send the largest shipment of care packages to our troops.

Look at the names of individuals who have already signed up.  This is beyond All-Star – it’s unprecedented.  And it’s all because these leaders are united supporting our troops in this historic effort. 

The question is – will you help answer their leadership with this drive?

Please, look at the list below, and then answer the call – sponsor care packages for our troops.
* Melanie Morgan –Host
* Andrew Breitbart – Co-Host
* Sean Hannity
* Dr. Laura Schlessinger
* Mark Levin
* Laura Ingraham

* Lars Larson
* Michael Graham   
* Rusty Humphries
* Dennis Miller
* Mancow Muller
* Martha Zoller
* Former Ambassador John Bolton
* Frank Gaffney, Center for Security Policy
* Noel Sheppard

The troops are out there in Iraq and Afghanistan still fighting for our safety, let’s send them a care package to show our gratitude: You can choose from one of many sizes listed below.
Send Some Care and Comfort to
a Small Group or a Whole Platoon

Mark Levin will Join Troopathon 2010 “Standing for Our Soldiers”


MARK LEVIN JOINS TROOPATHON

CAMPAIGN TO SEND CARE PACKAGES TO THE TROOPS

Celebrities are lining up for Move America Forward’s third Troopathon, which is now barely two weeks away and the excitement is growing every day.  We just nailed down talk radio legend Mark Levin who will be joining the effort to send history’s largest care package to our troops serving overseas.

MAF has already kicked off the presales event to boost the number of care packages sponsored for our troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay. Radio hosts like Mark Levin, Dennis Miller, Sean Hannity, Rusty Humphries, Mike Gallagher, Mancow Muller and more, have teamed up to assist us in raising the money for these care packages.

Join Mark in supporting our troops by sending
a care package to Afghanistan or Iraq.



Radio hosts, especially Levin, Miller and other conservative talkers like him, have always stood by our troops. Mark Levin has been a voracious defender of our troops, and their missions in the war from the beginning. He has always understood and communicated the reasons why America must be resolute in supporting our troops because our troops are defending us from attack by radical Islamic jihadists.

 “When you [ MSNBC Host Keith Olberman ] attack the American soldier who is on the battlefield, facing down this enemy, while you’re in your air conditioned office demanding caffine-free coffee getting your shoes polished …. Then you pick a fight with all of us, all of us who believe in the American G.I., regardless of party affiliation.”

-Mark Levin on his Radio Show

  Mark Levin took his first prime-time radio slot in 2003 and quickly exploded in popularity, syndicated now on hundreds of stations across the country.

He gained massive popularity last year when he released his book “Liberty and Tyranny” which shot up to the number one spot on Amazon’s best sellers list of all books.

Over a year later, Levin’s “Conservative Manifesto” remains at #1 in political books, on Amazon.com beating out dozens of more recently released books. The hardcover version of the book is still the #3 bestseller, meaning one book is 2 out of the top 3!

We are so lucky to have the support of leaders such as Mark Levin lending their voice to support our troops and to make our July 1st Troopathon a huge success. He knows why our troops are so important. They are doing a dangerous job, putting their own lives on the line to protect us. Don’t forget about them, make a contribution today.

Send Some Care and Comfort to
a Small Group or a Whole Platoon

Laura Ingraham and Michael Graham Join Troopathon Cast

Laura Ingraham, and Michael Graham to
Join Effort to Raise Funds for the Troops


Popular conservative talk radio and TV host Laura Ingraham is joining the growing list of supporters for the Troopathon campaign to raise money to send care packages to the troops. Move America Forward is also announcing that Michael Graham, another successful talk radio host will be joining as well.

The Troopathon is a huge campaign ending July 1st to send care packages to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan who continue to fight the war on terror, sacrificing all just to keep America safe. By participating in the Troopathon effort and lending their voices to support the troops and encourage Americans to sponsor care packages, celebrities like Laura Ingraham and Michael Graham are using their fame to bring more awareness to the Troopathon and our mission of supporting the troops.

Laura is helping the troops by assisting our campaign to send care packages. You can help by sponsortin a care package now

Laura Ingraham is one of the most successful and famous talk radio hosts in America. She has been a champion for our troops, their missions and for many other conservative causes as well. She started out as a speech writer for Ronald Reagan’s white house and went on to serve as law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. In 2001 she launched her radio career with her first show, aptly titled “The Laura Ingraham Show”. Since then she has become one of the top-rated conservative talkers in the country.

In addition to her radio success, Laura is an accomplished author, her first book “The Hillary Trap” was published in 2000. She has written several successful books since, but her greatest achievement in writing came on September 11, 2007 when she released “Power to the People” a wildly successful treatise on American culture that topped Amazon’s bestseller list on September 14th.


Laura Ingraham with Troops in Iraq

Laura Ingraham is a huge supporter of our troops, and has visited Iraq to show her support. She has helped make previous Troopathons successful by participating and promoting the Troopathon because she belives in the mission of our troops and is thankful for their sacrifice. The troops are fighting a tough war to keep America safe, a war on two fronts, in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The war in Afghanistan is tougher than it’s ever been, but our troops continue to persevere. Show your support for their sacrifice and send a care package to show your gratitude.


Michael Graham is a radio talk show host on Boston’s 96.9 and was part of Move America Forward’s delegation to Iraq in 2005 for the “Voices of Soldier’s Tour”. A life-long comedian, he’s appeared on the same comedy stage as Robin Williams and Jerry Seinfeld. In addition to being a great comedian and talk radio host, Michael Graham has political savvy. He has actually run political campaigns from the state to local level. He is also a huge supporter of our troops and has helped Move America Forward on several projects.


Michael Graham with MAF in Iraq, meets Iraqi officials

There are several great talk show hosts, from Laura Ingraham and Michael Graham to Martha Zoller, Rusty Humphries, Mike Gallagher, Mancow Muller and many more, are helping support the troops by lending their celebrity and helping spread awareness about the need to support our troops.

The men and women in America’s armed forces are sacrificing so much to protect America. Temperatures are now in triple digits every day in Iraq an Afghanistan, and June is already looking to be one of the bloodiest months of the war, but our troops continue to fight despite the hardships.

Join Laura Ingraham, Michael Graham, and the rest of the celebrities participating in our Troopathon campaign to send care packages to the troops. You can sponsor a care package right now that will provide comfort to a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Please show the troops you support and appreciate their service, sponsor care packages today.

It's pretty simple

If you want to participate ...

What are you asking for participation in?

Your headline said:
MAF Blogger Competition Has Begun!

What is an MAF blogger competition?

Are you competing for silliest name?

Is it for the most arcane contest announcement?

I see your comment about packages for the troops. Finally you've given a clue!

You may want to flesh out that information the next time you post for a more coherent announcement.

Also, what does MAF stand for?

OK, after reading down the whole thread I think what you are soliciting for is Bloggers to post links on their blogs back to your site to entice their regulars to send money to purchase care packages for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan with a contest held to determine which Blog is able to solicit the most care packages for your organization called “Move America Forward”.

I think I finally got it. Don't you think it would save peoples time if you said that at the top of the tread next time?
