Today, starting at 4pm Eastern, Move America Forward is holding Troopathon, a major event held each year to benefit the men and women who are serving on active duty by sending them care packages from home. To contribute, please visit Troopathon.org, and see below for more information.
Fun Fact: One of the items in the care package is a special Ronald Reagan Jelly Belly product made just for this purpose. It's covered in pro America messages in the languages of the Middle East and the idea is to hand them out for hearts and minds. Keep reading for more facts and updates!
You can help make the daily routine of our troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq a little more bearable and thank them for their services all at the same time.
We've heard from countless members of the Armed Forces serving in the Middle East about items that the military does not provide, are hard to come by and they really appreciate getting . That's why Move America Forward has responded and compiled care packages that contain these goods as a way of saying "thank you" for their sacrifices and courage.
Most importantly, each care package will include a personal message written by you where you can express your gratitude to our military.
Move America Forward is a 501(C)3 so all care package donations are tax deductible.
