Contributor alert: 29% of their expenses is fund raising and 14% is administrative costs. So if you give $100, $43 goes to them.

I was a general member of the public as well. I heard about Herobox in the news following the MLB AllStar game. I liked sending the package each month. I didn't get a response from the soldier, but like the others who have reviewed the organization, its not about me, its about them.

I tried several ways to verify the mailing label was filled out correct, but couldn't get verification. I went to the post office, the local recruiting office & a mother that has a son over seas. The copy that is with the instructions on the web site is outdated. I would love to be able to support a soldier through this orginazation, but had no way of knowing that the packages were getting to the soldier or sitting in a post office warehouse somewhere.

I could have gotten a more up to date example of the mailing label that had better instruction for completing it. The one on the site is from 2007.

I found out about HeroBox while watching the MLB All Star game. When former US President Jimmy Carter explained what Ryan Housley was doing for our deployed soldiers, I was moved. What a wonderful way to show our soldiers that we care and make their deployment a little better. The HeroBox website was very helpful in giving me instructions and answering my questions. I would like to thank Jennifer from the HeroBox office for getting back to me so quickly when I emailed her with some questions. I have sent out 5 boxes so far. The last one just an extra Easter box with enough jelly beans and "Peeps" for all 18 guys in Rob's security detail on his base in Tikrit, Iraq. Some of the guys get very little from home and love to get packages. I have been fortunate that I have been in contact with Rob a great deal. I had to guess what to send early,but now I think I know exactly what to send. He is a great kid who shares with his buddies alot. I absolutely love helping him out.

The Great!

I have received personal satisfaction knowing I am helping our troops overseas. I have family members in the military and know that sometimes the "little luxuries" are hard to come by, and sometimes just the basics!

I found out about this organization through a Facebook post, which I also reposted for others to see/join. I was able to send care packages to a female soldier stationed in Iraq over the holidays. Sending a HeroBox is a wonderful way to show your appreciation for the people serving our country overseas. I did have email contact with my adopted solider and was able to send her various things that she wanted as well as general items that are always needed.

Being able to make a soldier's tour a little easier by sending them the comforts of home. I also liked having personal contact with my adopted Hero.

My mom and I have wanted to help out our soldiers in some way for a while now, she stumbled upon Herobox.org one day and we both decided to join. She had the opportunity to help out 2 female soldiers and I have had the opportunity to help out 2 male soldiers. What an awesome experience it is. The first one I had, I had no contact with and there were no items listed to send to him so I wasn't sure what to do but send over what I could for a couple months to help him out..Any little bit helps them! The next soldier I have had, I have been able to stay in contact with through email. It's really neat to hear the impact the boxes and letters made on him. Its about the neatest thing I have ever had the opportunity to be involved in. During Christmas is their hardest time over in Iraq so I sent over a herobox full of christmas gifts wrapped and some in a stocking. Christmas C.D.,Santa Hat, Card Games, Christmas LED Lights, all sorts of other things, They appreciated someone would really want to take the time to do that..I'm so thankful to Herobox for letting people like my mom and I help out the soldiers. There is no greater feeling when you hear back from them on how much of an impact you made on them!

How awesome it is to help out our soldiers, a simple care package, letter or email can mean so much to them over there! It's so awesome to finally have a place where you can adopt a soldier for a few months and help them out! Thank God for Herobox!!

I had email or contact with some of the soldiers, to make sure I could send them the right things that they need.
