    Tuesday, May 28, 2013, 2:30 pm Eastern Time

    A HUGE Netroots For The Troops® Challenge Diary will be posted on Tuesday, May 28th at 2:30 pm EDT/11:30 am PDT. An anonymous NFTT ANGEL is offering $5000 for matching funds. We're hoping that this angel's generosity is emulated by others inspired to add their funds to the challenge.

    Please join us. And bring your wallet! If you'd like to do so in advance, do make a donation HERE. Thank you from the entire 2013 NFTT Team.

    Why should you contribute to NFTT? The below diary by former Governor and Chairman of the Democratic National Committee Howard Dean (D-VT) gives a few persuasive reasons to do so.

    Support Their Sacrifice

    by Gov Howard Dean MD

    In 2008, Netroots For the Troops® began raising money to send specially designed care packages to our soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sending our troops practical items like socks, gloves, and LED flashlights, as well as welcome reminders of home like DVD's and CD's, let them know that their sacrifice and personal heroism are not taken for granted.

    Netroots For the Troops® originated with the Daily Kos community which, much like my campaign for the presidency, had its genesis in opposition to the preemptive war in Iraq. Netroots For the Troops® is also a way to show that while we disagree with what our brave soldiers are asked to do without failing to recognize their valor, patriotism, and service to the country.
