Support the troops by supporting their kids

Posted: April 28, 2009 in charity, children, colbert report, military

On last night’s Colbert Report, host Steven Colbert unveiled his new children’s charity.  It’s called, and it is a place where schools whose populations include a high number of military families can go to request donations of money for supplies and special projects.  Usually these are cash-strapped or in some cases downright poverty-stricken districts that need all the help they can get.  You can search the site for schools near you and find out what the classrooms and students there are in need of.

All of the schools listed are, as I’ve said, in areas with high military populations.  These kids have it pretty tough already, dealing with the constant stress of deployment.  Please surf there and give what you can so the children of our nation’s best 1% can get a break.

Support the troops by supporting their kids!

    One of the things that I’ve always loved about Colbert is that no matter how much of an abrasive host he pretends to be, the show supports some wonderful causes and great works.

    Yes, I’ve always liked that about him. He did a podcast for recently where he talked about his upcoming deployment to an undisclosed location in the Persian Gulf region:

    Now, there’s a celebrity who really supports the troops.

    It’s really nice to see how the Left is supporting the troops. This is great progress from where we once were. I think our treatment of the members of the military and their families is shameful, really. They deserve much more than they receive for what they have gone through for us. Many people in the military seem poor to me–those who live on base and off.
