Move America Forward, the nation’s largest pro-troop organization, has partnered with blogger and political analyst Michelle Malkin in an unprecedented, high-tech telethon to benefit United States troops.
The 8-hour telethon, “From the Front Lines” – Honoring America’s Military Men and Women,” blends technological wizardry and top-tier media personalities, such as Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Hollywood actors and other special guests.
The world will also hear from Gold Star families, those whose loved ones have laid down their lives for America’s freedom. The premiere guests will be our U.S. Troops, who will appear from the Front Lines in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This project aims to ship the largest number of care packages to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan in American history, with the help of viewers and listeners of Internet TV and Radio during a live stream across America.
Our troops need to know that Americans are fighting for them here at home, while they are sacrificing for us on the frontlines overseas.
This special live programming will debut on Malkin’s Internet television platform at HotAir at a date soon-to-be released. “From the Front Lines” will encourage Internet users to sponsor care packages to show support for our military men and women serving abroad.
Melanie Morgan (radio and television talk show host, and Chairman of Move America Forward) and Michelle Malkin will share the honor of hosting this ground-breaking event.
Malkin and Morgan have both traveled to Iraq to see for themselves the incredible stories of heroism by our troops, and the amazing humanitarian efforts still underway.
The American public needs to hear their stories of success on the battlefield and off, from the men and women actually waging this critical fight against Islamic Jihadists.
The technology provider for this historic event is UStream (website: http://www.ustream.tv/ ) - a Silicon-Valley based company that does live video streaming to millions of people. In addition to the content stream, Ustream also moderates chat rooms during the live feed, and allows people to ‘see’ through their computer a single or multi-source event, comment and donate while they are watching.
Ustream has a proven track record of success with this kind of mass audience live streaming – having already worked with Ann Coulter from CPAC, Senator Barack Obama, Senator John McCain, Senator Chris Dodd, and Congressman Ron Paul. They have also produced large concert events, and specialized programs.
Throughout the show, viewers will be asked to make donations to MAF’s 501c3 charitable organization to sponsor the largest number of care packages to our troops in history.
The production will be streamed to millions on the Internet via thousands of websites, operated by individuals who support our military men and women.
In addition, we will work to arrange simulcast of the audio of the event over the radio airwaves at dozens of talk radio stations across the country.
