Some Useful Facts About Troopathon:
Troopathon is a non-partisan non-political effort. We work with celebrities from Hollywood, television, the music industry, sports heroes and athletes, bloggers, journalists, radio personalities, academics, experts in the field, and elected officials to bring together a wide variety of guests to support our troops.
Past Troopathon events have raised over $3.5 million for our troops. Last year, Troopathon 5 raised over $420,000 but we’d like to break that total this year!
Last year’s Troopathon was hosted by Melanie Morgan who continues to be a voice for our troops through her career behind the microphone at KSFO radio in San Francisco. She was joined by former Congressman J.D. Hayworth, radio host and Fox News contributor Dana Loesch, and Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee. Until his sad passing, Andrew Breitbart was a close member of the Troopathon family and co-hosted every year.
Past Troopathons have included an amazing array of guests from every type of industry. Some of our notable past guests have included:
|Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee
Current Navy SEALs
Andrea Shea King
Dr. Laura Schlessinger
|Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski
Ambassador John Bolton
Care Packages sponsored through Troopathon are the easiest way to donate to the troops. No running to the store, no confusing customs forms and postal regulations. Simply donate with your credit card and MAF’s team of dedicated volunteers will send the care packages on your behalf. Remember, all donations are tax-deductible!
Each care package includes a special note written by the donor expressing their appreciation for the sacrifice our troops make. Packages can be sponsored for as low as $25 for a single serviceman, up to $1,000 for a Battalion Pack which will serve up to 60 soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen.
