The Move America Forward challenge!

While watching the ground-breaking live Internet broadcast of Move America Forward today, you can keep track of the progress we make towards our goal of $500,000 in donations for supplies to our troops.  This handy widget will update constantly during the day today, showing the amount we’ve raised and how far we have to go:

This is brought to us by our good friend Rob Nepell at Kithbridge, the consulting firm that assists corporate entities in building their Internet presence.

Michelle notes that we already have some significant progress on fundraising, from an unsurprising source:

Sean Hannity announced yesterday that he’s personally donating $15,000 to the From the Frontlines effort. Awesome. Here’s my challenge to regular readers and commenters of this site and Hot Air. At the end of the web-a-thon, I’d like to see you collectively match that donation. Can you take up the challenge and make a pledge? Can you all help me walk the troop-supporting walk and raise $15,000 by the end of the night? Can we do it? Yes, you can.

You can sponsor a care package right here, with items ranging from $15.99 to $899.99.

The First Mate and I have already sent our $149 care package to the troops.   That’s 1% of the Hot Air/MM goal already!  I know we can push that past 100% by the end of the broadcast at midnight tonight.  Let’s get it started early today — and be back here at 4 pm ET for the Move America Forward broadcast, right here at Hot Air.
