"We are seeing lots of brands and individuals embrace the Moontoast platform as a way to monetize their knowledge, experience and expertise, but Vince is the first to use Moontoast for philanthropy. We think he's going to raise a lot of money for Challenge America, and at the same time show other artists, athletes and celebrities that Moontoast can be an efficient and effective vehicle for good," said Moontoast Chief Marketing Officer, Michael Haje.
"The funds raised through this innovative, online auction will help Challenge America continue to 'connect the dots' for our country's returning injured military and their families to resources for a successful transition from battlefield to home front," said Houston Cowan, Challenge America founder and executive director.
