Evertalk and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Partner to Create Online Tribute & Memorial Wall this Veterans Day
November 01, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle NewsSAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. AND KANSAS CITY, MO – November 1, 2012 – This Veterans Day (November 11, 2012), Evertalk and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) are partnering to create a digital memorial & tribute wall for veterans of the armed forces who have bravely and selflessly served our country. This partnership lets members of the VFW create free tribute pages and memorial sites for veterans and servicemen and women they wish to recognize for serving our country. Over 1.6 million VFW members will be able to leverage this partnership with Evertalk using their app on Facebook and also available through the Evertalk iPhone app. Anyone can recognize a veteran and build a free tribute or memorial page by going to: http://www.everta.lk.
With each completed page, a special Evertalk memorial & tribute wall is being dynamically built. Each Evertalk page offers visitors to the page the opportunity to share their own photos, post memories in the guestbook, donate to special causes, and learn about the lives of our nation's heroes. These pages can then be easily shared via Facebook, email, and Twitter through the Evertalk application. Evertalk is providing this service to VFW members at no cost. The VFW tribute and memorial wall can be found on Evertalk here: https://www.everta.lk/evertalk/partners/view/1
"Our nation's heroes should never be forgotten. That's the driving belief behind our new partnership with Evertalk. We're excited that together, we're able to provide our members with the opportunity to honor the lives and legacies of their brothers and sisters in arms," says Randi Law, Manager, VFW Communications and Public Affairs.
Creators of Evertalk memorial and tribute pages may also enable Evertalk's crowdfunding capabilities on their Evertalk page to raise money to donate to special causes or to assist families with hospital bills.
"The Evertalk team passionately believes that everyone deserves to be remembered. We strongly feel that our nation's heroes must be recognized and celebrated for their service. This is why we are excited to join forces with the VFW on this great initiative." said Russ Hearl, CEO and co-founder of Evertalk. "Millions of servicemen and women aren't represented on physical memorial walls or statues. So, we think it's exceptionally important to give the families of our brave heroes the ability to create their own space online using Evertalk so they can ensure their memory lives on."
Launched in July, 2012 and based in San Francisco, California, Evertalk combines beautiful memorial & tribute pages with fundraising features that let users easily tell the life stories of their loved ones, friends, and heroes. Evertalk is also the only native Facebook application for remembering your loved ones. It's free to create an Evertalk page or fundraising campaign. Users can easily send notifications, share photos and videos, donate to help families raise money for hospital bills, and post memories to guestbooks. To learn more go to: www.everta.lk
