Netroots For The Troops is an organization that fundraises year round to send Care Packages to our Oversea Troops. The packages are filled and shipped at Netroots Nation each August.
There are a couple of ways to donate, this year. You can make a one time donation by clicking the donate button, or register to be a Personal Fundraiser by clicking the register button to the left.
We're ready to help you get started by creating your own Personal Fundraising Page! Once you've signed up, we will email (within 72 hrs.)to you a Fundraising Kit that includes sample solicitation letters, how to order business cards, and tips for how to ask people to support your cause.
Use your imagination to raise funds. Last year we had a kossack and her daughters raise funds at a neighborhood event by selling lemonade. Talk your grocery stores, schools, church, neighbors, go through the stuff you never use and have a rummage sale, go Caroling For The Troops, or pass a 'Troop Tip Jar' around at your local St. Patrick's Day Parade. The possibilities are endless!
Each Care Package costs $220.00, with postage included(per TexDem). Create a Personal Web Page or sponsor one. If money is tight, use your imagination. It is within your power to make a difference in our Soldier's lives. You are the key!
We're asking you not to post a diary for your personal pages on Daily Kos. Daily Kos is NFTT's home base and we'll still be posting general diaries for fundraising on Daily Kos. We're also asking that you refrain from posting comments within the general NFTT diaries promoting your personal page.
What you can do is post a comment in Open Thread and other open forums requesting someone to go through your personal page to make a donation. You can also make your sig. line your donation page link. If you need any help with this, send me a message and I can talk you through it.
Create a Personal/ Team Fundraising page to support our oversea Troops.
If you signed up for monthly amounts to be taken out and gifted to NFTT, we have changed companies we are doing business with. These amounts are no longer being taken out.
