The short answer,
We raised $45,139.56 in cash last year. From the corporate side in either straight out donation or discounted merchandise totaled $30,900.00. So the grand total of all of our efforts was $76,039.56. Congratulations Daily Kos!
You made a lot of our deployed members of the military happy and thankful.
More members of the USMC 1/3.
To achieve our objective this year we need to do a little better. We need to hit the $50,000.00 mark for the cash donations as well as increasing or corporate participation to $50,000.00. This will bring our grand total to $100,000.00. This is a very achievable goal. You guys did better than that in December supporting each other. And you have continued to support other Kossacks. Netroots For The Troops® (NFTT) presents us all with the opportunity to show the nation and the world the words; Support the Troops! isn't just a slogan to us. It isn't rhetoric we throw around. It's action we take by donating our money to providing a Care Package to our deployed military and for the first time this year, some of our wounded Veterans in VA hospitals.
It's time to show our active duty personnel we have their backs. And to our wounded Veterans, we can show them We Still Have Their Backs too.
And if you're going to be at Netroots Nation in Providence, RI come June. Come help us pack a box like Christine Pelosi did with her daughter last year in Minneapolis.
