TROOPATHON 2013: Help #TeamCOINS in Supporting our Troops!

Posted: June 19, 2013 in Uncategorized


Help #TeamCOINS raise money for care packages for our troops!  DONATE HERE.

Troopathon is a once-a-year event held by Move America Forward (MAF) which is a non-profit charity dedicated to serving those who protect us: our brave troops. Troopathon 6 is a month-long care package drive that culminates in a star-studded 8-hour web-a-thon broadcast. This year’s broadcast will go live on June 27th from the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA.

Leading up to the live broadcast, Troopathon runs a blogger competition to help in the fundraising activities.  Teams of bloggers compete to see which can raise the most.  I am the team captain this year for Team COINS, and am joined by several other excellent bloggers, including:

Marooned in Marin, on Twitter: @MaroonedInMarin
