Jake Tapper auctions off posters for veterans

Fresh off of retweeting pictures of fallen servicemembers over the Memorial Day weekend, Jake Tapper initiated a Twitter-auction with the proceeds to be donated to Defenders of Freedom.

The bidding started at $100 for a Pitch Perfect 1 and 2 poster, autographed by the film’s producer, Elizabeth Banks.

As it turned out, Maggie Pearson bid $600, and another donor offered on an additional $550, but permitting her to get the autographed posters.

So Tapper’s Twitter-auction raised an impressive $1150.

The Defenders of Freedom is “a 501c3 Non Profit Organization committed to supporting deployed Troops around the world with personalized care packages, aid wounded Troops in their transition to civilian life and empowering all Veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation New Dawn with life & career mentoring, job search assistance and general transitioning to the civilian sector.”
