This will be Topspin’s last blog post of 2013 as we sign off a bit for the holidays.
And speaking of the holidays, we wanted to leave the year behind with a particularly heartwarming story. For the past few weeks, Topspin has helped Kid Rock and his fans pledge money and donations to send care packages to troops overseas through a donations campaign running on KidRock.com. Initially, we were hoping to send 50 packages… but we far exceeded that goal, with over $28,000 raised and over 500 care packages pledged to soldiers far from home this Holiday.
Packages will include toiletries, cookies, candies, and Kid Rock CDs, as well as merchandise from Kid Rock, Made in Detroit, Badass American Lager, Jim Beam, Harley-Davidson and FEA/Live Nation (most of which has been donated by Kid Rock and his generous partners).
Each person who donated had the opportunity to add a special message to the troops which we’ll be sending oversees along with our care packages. You can read these messages here: kidrock.com/carepackage.
We are so humbled by the outpouring of donations we received and excited to share the results of this promotion with fans via photos and responses from the soldiers receiving our care packages.
