Can I give to a family that I know in the military?
No. In order to protect the privacy and security of the military families, all donations are anonymous.
Why is this better than some of the free sites available on the Internet?
Many of the free sites on the Internet do not provide a secure and private way for families to communicate. By giving this gift families will be able to share their words, hearts, and lives in a very candid manner without the fear of outside eyes.
I do not feel comfortable using my credit card, what should I do?
If you would like to sponsor a family and do not want to use your credit card, make your check payable to: Websites for Heroes and mail to:
Is the site password protected?
Websites for Heroes is a password protected Internet site allowing military personnel, who are separated from family, to privately share their thoughts, lives, and special moments in an incredible way.
How long is this commitment?
Your gift /sponsorship provides a Military Family with an annual website subscription. This is a one time gift and you have no further obligations.
What if my military family comes home?
This is an annual subscription given to the Military Family, made possible by your generosity. The website is theirs for twelve consecutive months.
