eMOM's Latest News and Updates

Good Afternoon!

We've got about a month to go before we kick off eMOM's annual Holiday Love™ campaign so be sure to start buying your holiday cards and drafting those fantastic holiday letters our troops love so much. You won't believe what a morale boost your holiday cards and letters can be.

Last year in addition to holiday cards and letters we shipped care packages to our troops. We had such a great time shopping for all the goodies that went into them and even more fun putting the care packages together. We'd really love for you to be a part of our Holiday Love™ project this year. As we get closer to the launch date, we'll give you all the details on how you can participate. There are several levels of participation and something for everyone to get involved in.

You can see some of the photos from last year's Holiday Love™ project on our flickr photo account.

From time to time we're fortunate to get honorable mentions on other people's websites or blogs. Other times, we're featured on company sites about the work we do using new media.

This week eMail Our Military has been featured on the Remarkable Parents website in their article titled "eMail Our Military On Twitter - Twitter For A Social Cause". We hope you'll stop by, show your support and thanks for them featuring us and leave you comments on the article.

Military Chronicles - A New Partnership

We're pleased to announce our partnership with PlaceAndTime.com. The launch of their Military Chronical Program extends the good work done by the Washington Post Faces of the Fallen.

The goals of our partnership are twofold:

1) To invite and encourage those who knew these fallen heroes to create a "Place and Time" chronicle of their lives for the world to see so there's an enduring record of how they lived - not just how they died.

2) To encourage the military service members' family, friends and community to create on-going chronicles of loved ones and home town activities in support of these men and women serving their country.

Be sure to stop by and create a chronicle of your own today.

We'll be represented at Blog World Expo and the Milblogging conference this year by our partners at Place and Time (PlaceandTime.com).
