Website tour!

Welcome to our new website! We know change is tough, so we've put together a list of some of the things you might be looking for, and how/where to find them now. Our site is streamlined, with a lot of content now living on our blog, so we hope this little tour will help. There's a video here (a low tech tour, created while the site was in development!) as well as a text list below of some of the major items. Enjoy!


Homepage
The basics! We hope the info is short, sweet, and to the point about the basics of what we do.
  • A few highlighted videos will rotate as we produce more; you can subscribe to our YouTube channel to see more.
  • Quick links to places you can find us are on the column on the right, as well as our donate and email buttons.
  • Current total # of cards, as well as deadlines for cards will be listed on the left, as always.
  • Top tips right in the middle! Each one will have a link to a post on the blog about those topics.
  • About us is at the bottom of the homepage now.
Hero Blog: Same great letters as always! Tags added so you can sort by letters from soldiers, families, etc; and the robust search feature that Blogger now has works wonders if you're looking for a hero letter you saw a long time back and only remembered a key word.

Homefront Blog: Here's where some big changes are! We're returning to our previous model - posting regularly updated content on the blog.
  • Mailroom Mondays: reports on what was mailed the past week, as well as current shipper needs, nearing deadlines, and Hero waiting list.
  • Thankful Thursdays: reports on what's been received the past week.
  • Any other time: lots of other content — inspirational, events, bloghops, links to sales, etc. 
  • Bloghops will be organized through our blog in the future.
