I have really enjoyed sending the boxes to my soldier. Just knowing that I helped a little bit makes me feel good. they are so far away from home and need all the help we can send.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the emails and flag that I recieved.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

just doing good.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help every soldier call home.

I have been attempting to volunteer with HeroBox for about nine months. I have contacted HeroBox multiple times via their website, using their specific links, to volunteer my services, and to inquire about how to participate. Every inquiry went unanswered. I never heard from HeroBox until about two days ago when I seem to have suddenly made their mailing list. I know this sounds harsh, but the instructions directly to the right of this data field specifically tell me to "be honest and candid." It prompts me to "provide details and specific examples." If HeroBox needs someone to volunteer to answer emails, I am willing to do that. I'm just not sure how long I should knock on the door. Thank you for this opportunity to share.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I've never met any, but I bet they are awesome people.

I HEARD A RADIO ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT HEROBOX, I DECIDED TO VISIT THE WEBSITE, MY FAMILY LIKED WHAT WE SAW ABOUT HELPING OUR SOLDIERS SO TOGETHER WE DECIDED ON A FEMALE SOLDIER AND THE LENGTH OF OUR ADOPTION...AFTER WE SENT A FEW PACKAGES TO OUR CRYSTAL WE DECIDED TO ADOPT HER FOR AN EXTENDED TIME.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

MEETING A GREAT SOLDIER WHO IS OVER SEAS SERVING OUR COUNTRY

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

N/A

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

MEETING CRYSTAL AND READING HER BLOGS/NEWSLETTERS ABOUT IRAQ

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

STAFF IS SO FRIENDLY, THEY WERE SO HAPPY THAT WE DECIDED TO EXTEND OUR ADOPTION OF CRYSTAL

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

SEND CARE PACKAGES TO EVERY SOLDIER AND ENLIGHTEN THEIR LIVES TO SHOW THEM HOW MUCH PEOPLE DO CARE

Ways to make it better...

N/A

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

FINDING MORE PEOPLE WILLING TO ADOPT A SOLDIER AND SPEND A LITTLE MONEY, WE AVERAGE SPENDING $20 PER MONTH ON OUR CRYSTAL

One thing I'd also say is that...

THE PEOPLE AT HEROBOX WERE SO NICE WHEN I ASKED IF WE COULD EXTEND OUR ADOPTION WITH CRYSTAL...I HAVE ENJOYED SENDING EMAILS TO HER AND READING HER BLOGS/NEWSLETTERS..WE HAVE HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH HEROBOX

I've only been sending boxes for two months now and the only thing I don't enjoy is Saturday at the post office! The solider I have adopted is wonderful. He's told be all about his wife and family and how they came to be and I feel prevledged to know him. This is an excellent program and people who see me sending a Hero Box in the post office ask about what I am doing and I happily share, so there should be more people joining. I'm in the process of trying to get my office and my mother's school involved. I would sugeest more advertising to get more volunteers. I can so just so much with workd of mouth, but if you come up with some car magnets, I would proudly display them.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I get to communicate with someone who defends our country and show my support.

Good Afternoon, I worked with Herobox in late 2009 in Tyrone, GA to raise funds and awareness of the mission of the charity. Each person I dealt with at Herobox was a true professional and always put the mission of the organization first. Beyond that, all the family and friends associated with Herobox were genuinely great people and great Americans. I hope others will check out HEROBOX today, they are doing great things for our troops.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing from troops that have received mail from Herobox.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the great people with the organization and helping to contribute.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

genuine, kind hearted, passionate, driven.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Bring more and more of our troops a much needed moment of enjoyment while deployed by receiving mail from home.

Have enjoyed sharing a little bit of home with the soldiers. They do so much to provide us with the freedom we take for granted.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Knowing our soldiers receive some comforts from home.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help support our soliders and make time spent away from home a bit nicer.
