A conservative pro-military group has arranged for what it claims is the largest single shipment of care packages to the troops overseas.

Move America Forward showed off more than a $1.5 million worth of aid for the men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan in Sacramento Wednesday.

The packages contain a mix of goodies, personal comfort items and specially packaged bags of Jelly Belly beans for the troops to hand out to children.

Most of the money for the packages came from an eight hour Internet telethon held in June.
