Some Useful Facts About Troopathon
Troopathon is an annual month long Care Package drive held by Move America Forward (MAF) that culminates in a 7-hour long T.V. and web broadcast with the sole goal of sending the largest single shipment of care packages to our troops for the year! MAF is a non-profit dedicated to supporting our Troops!
Troop and K9 Care Packages sponsored through Troopathon are the best and easiest way to donate to the troops. No running to the store, no confusing customs forms and postal regulations. Simply donate online, by phone or via check and MAF’s dedicated volunteers will send the care packages full of the absolute very best items with a personal message on your behalf. Every gift is tax-deductible!
A Few More Facts to Know:
• Troopathon will be broadcast live on Newsmax TV, which is available to over 40 million households across the nation, on June 29th from the Newsmax Studios in Boca Raton, FL.
• While there are many admirable groups supporting our veterans, we are one of the few organizations supporting active-duty troops deployed on the front lines of Afghanistan/Iraq, and in harm’s way around the world. Troopathon is the only telethon fundraiser to support the troops in the country.
• Troopathon is hosted by Rita Cosby, an Emmy winning TV host and best-selling author, our founder Melanie Morgan, a published author and radio host who has spent an entire career advocating for the troops behind the microphone, and John Bachman, TV journalist, NewsmaxTV host and military supporter. They will be joined on air by many other Pro-Troop Supporters!
