Last Thursday an impressive $507,000- was raised during an eight hour period at the annual event known as Troopathon. Troopathon- which was webcast here on ‘The BIG’s’- brings together celebrities from Hollywood, radio, TV and the media for the purpose of creating the single largest care package drive in America in support of our deployed troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Raising a half million dollars in eight hours is a tall feat anytime but in this economic climate it is quite remarkable.
Yours truly had the opportunity to participate as a speaker and also by broadcasting my radio show during the TV webcast seen by many of you right here.
While raising money in support of our troops is a serious subject it doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. I thought you might enjoy this behind the scenes look at patriots Andrew Breitbart, SNL’s Victoria Jackson, Jon Kahn (‘My Weekly Date With a Liberal’), BreitbartTV’s Larry O’Conner and others in what I call: Breitbart Unplugged, Jon Kahn Exposed, Victoria Jackson Unhinged. There is a lot of fun and very entertaining good natured needling going on.
By the way should you care to send in a belated donation to Troopathon you can do so here. Every $25 donation sends one care package overseas.
