NFTT- Who Will You Buy4 This Christmas?

As many of you know, I have been involved with Netroots for Troops for several years. Each year at the national Netroots Nation conference, a bunch of us liberal hippies assemble hundreds of CARE packages to send to our troops stationed overseas. (Previous posts HERE and HERE, for example.) I have recently joined the Board of Directors for NFTT and am thrilled to continue my work with them.

With Black Friday only days away, and Cyber Monday right after, if your thoughts aren’t already on Christmas shopping, chances are they soon will be. After the turkey (or in my case, Vegetable Wellington) and trimmings are cleared, and before the decorations are up, while you’re browsing online for gift ideas, take five minutes to learn how you can shop your favorite online stores AND make a small donation to Netroots For The Troops, Inc.!

Details after the jump.

Netroots for the Troops 2012 recap – blood was spilled (PHOTOS)

It’s what we do The Netroots for the Troops 2012 went off almost entirely without a hitch. Although, due to a lack of donations this year, we were only able to pack 150 boxes, half of what we’ve done previously, it was still a wonderful thing to behold. [Photos by Anne C.

Netroots for the Troops — Progressives turning out to help out our military men and women

Yes, I’m asking for your money again

Yes, yes, yes. It’s that time again. Time for the awesomeness that is Netroots for the Troops®. Wait, you don’t know what NFTT is? NFTT is a what I call “The 33-Minute Miracle”. I’ll tell you why in a minute.

Every year at the annual Netroots Nation conference, the largest event of the year for progressive blogggers, writers and activists, a group of dedicated individuals pull of an major service event where hundreds of CARE packages are assembled and then shipped to our troops over seas. This year, we’re including some vets that are in U.S. hospitals, returned from war.
