HEROES WAY LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE
Monday, July 18, 2011
Gordonville, MO -- Today, Heroes Way, a Missouri-based non-profit organization devoted to erecting highway memorial signs honoring soldiers lost in combat during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, launched a new website, www.heroesway.org.
"With the overwhelming support and recognition Heroes Way continues to receive, we needed to adjust our online presence to better serve those that want to help our organization honor the sacrifice of the soldiers who lost their lives in combat," said Ross Gartman, President of Heroes Way.
The new site includes extensive information on the Heroes Way Interstate Interchange Designation Program, which allows for friends and family of the fallen to erect a highway memorial sign in their local community. Additionally, the site includes frequent blog updates, biographies on fallen soldiers, resources for families of the fallen, and the ability to accept online donations.
The site was built using the latest Nation Builder platform and integrates with common social media services such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.
Gartman said he and the Heroes Way board members hope this integration will enable site visitors to spread the word about Heroes Way. "Our long-term goal is to continue to expand Heroes Way and get more communities involved in our efforts to honor those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom," said Gartman. "I encourage everyone to visit our new site, share it with others using the social media links, and if able, make an online contribution."
