Look, There are only Five Days Left and its true that my team, the Steamers  has a big lead, but this is not just for the win… this is to give our hero troops a thank you and a little taste of home.

I have been asking very nicely all-week long but not all of you have come through so maybe a change in approach is needed. Lets make a deal ! You guys come through and buy a care package for folks overseas protecting us, Rover here gets a brand new bag of kibbles.  If not enough of you do….Well, let’s just say the kibbles will not be necessary.

For those of you who are horrified, Don’t worry I am joking, Unlike the commander-in-chief, I would never hurt a fly. But if you are horrified and have not bought a care package, let me put it this way. Our heroes overseas have a gun to their heads 24 hours a day. If you felt for the dog, please feel for the people fighting for your families, Read on and see how:

We need your help!  The Lid is participating an a “blogisphere-wide program run by Move America Forward, who’s purpose is getting as many care packages as possible sent to the troops before  a June 25th Troopathon event that features Michelle Malkin, El Rushbo, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Kelsey Grammer, Gary Sinise,and Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey. Please consider clicking on this link or on the picture above to order a care package to be sent to the heroes serving our nation and protecting your family in the toughest theaters of conflict.  (My wife the CPA wants me to remind you that Move America Forward is a 501(C)3 so all care package donations are tax deductible.)

Most importantly, each care package will include a personal message written by you where you can express your gratitude to our military. This is done through the order form by putting your message in the Comments box. Along with your message will be included a “self-addressed” envelope for the troops to send you a Thank You note if, and when, they have time. This is done through the order form by putting your address in the Ship To field. Rest assured that all care packages are sent to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Oh one more thing  Move America Forward has asked four bloggers to captain teams to compete to see who can get the most care packages bought for the men and women overseas. I am part of the Hot AirSteamers led by Ed Morrissey of Hot Air. We are competing against some of the biggest and best blogs in the net. So please buy a few care packages through the Steamers’ page, Help us win and even, more importatnly bring some cheer to those who have dedicated themselves to protecting you and your families. Its a great way to say “Thank You”
