Say “Thank You” to a Soldier this Holiday Season
November and the National Military Family Appreciation month have wound down, but a startup company called Evergram has announced an outreach program that will extend the encouragement and gratitude from now until Christmas Day.
Evergram is a “future messaging” platform, which means families and friends can leave messages for recipients to view on special occasions: birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, family gatherings, or living memorials. Think digital wedding guestbook-meets-youtube with a little bit of Facebook mixed in, and you’ve got the idea behind Evergram. Co-founder Duncan Seay envisioned the service in 2010, when he was diagnosed with cancer, and began to think about what he would want to share with his loved ones. Thankfully, his cancer is now in remission, and his idea was the seed of what is now Evergram.
Evergram ‘s military outreach program will collect messages of encouragement and gratitude to deployed troops overseas through ThankOurTroops.Evergram.com. Step-by-step instructions guide you through creating and sending video, audio or text messages to troops. Messages will be delivered on Christmas Day.
If you wish to send messages to a specific soldier, rather than add to a collective message that will go to multiple troops, join Evergram (the beta is free) and follow the steps.
