    How about posting this on social media sites and making it a huge effort?

    Oh my goodness YES! That would be absolutely AMAZING! If you're on Facebook you could post what we're doing on there; I could do it on a few websites. And maybe we could even go on this website and ask on popular posts and the really popular peoples threads and tell them what we're trying to do and if they agree we could have them tell us on this thread if they are willing to do it. And see how many people we could get.

    I have no idea if that made any sense or not but I hope you get what I'm saying.

    Oh and when we do post on social media, how should we word it? Could you tell me what we should say?

    Could you imagine that if this goes viral (which I doubt would happen) but at least popular or something how many officers this will affect?!?!?!?! I always wanted to do something really special for them and being a part of this is really amazing!!!!

    You started it! ;)

    First, we need to decide on a firm date to shoot for. We need enough time to get the word out.

    Then we need to make a list of sites to post on and who will do that.

    I think it's a great idea! Anyone can honor hometown heroes. That would include police, fire, highway patrol, etc.

    Ok then... let's do it :)... I'm soooo excited. So let's see... you are right Wondergirl we need time to get the word out so we could do either March 7 or sometime in early to mid May. I would think that over a month would be good, but if we really want to get this thing going I think May would give us plenty of time too. Let me know what you guys think.

    Also, Teacherjenn, will you help us too? Getting this organized and help post and stuff? If you want to help that is.

    As far as websites go, I think we should all post on the webs we choose. We could use the following sites:

    Twitter -- My brother is pretty popular on twitter and I can let him know
    What we are doing and see if he would help out. I'm 100% sure he
    Would help us.

    This web-- Like I said before, We could let popular posters on here know what we
    Are doing.

    Facebook--Maybe one of you are on Facebook can do it because I don't have an account there.

    Pinterest--I can get in touch with some of my followers.

    Tumblr-- I have no idea what that is but if one you do know maybe you can post there.

    Youtube-- Ok I know that might sound a little crazy, but if one of you have or know of someone who has an account and does videos on there, maybe you could ask for them to include what we are doing at the end of the vid or in a description box. I don't know if it its a good idea, but hey I didn't think theres any harm in asking you guys if it would work. Right? ;)

    Right now I can't think of any more, but maybe you guys can. And let me know if these sites work for you too, please.

    And one more thing: Can one of you come up with a paragraph or so stating what we are doing. I would but I'm not exactly sure how to word it you know what I mean?

    I'm not on social media like Facebook, etc. but I can easily put the word out for my school district. Word of good things is spread easily in society. I had a parent returning from military deployment. I sent a letter to every major television station and newspaper in Southern California. The day before he returned, my phone rang off the hook. Every major TV station, including national stations picked up the story. It showed me that people want a "feel good" story. So, if enough people spread the word, it could make national news and every police, fire, state troopers, hometown heroes, etc. would be bombarded with home baked goods all from the thankful public.

    Can we use your letter and tweak it?

    For me, Facebook, Quora, Answermug, various writing websites and blogs, dailycoyote.net, the two Chicago newspapers, area local papers, possibly Illinois schols and colleges.

    Yes!!! That would be perfect the more people know about this the better!!!! That would really get the word out. Thanks for suggesting that.
    Oh and one thing don't forget the Paramedics and EMTs they do so much for us too, but you are probably including them when you say hometown heroes.

    Um yeah I guess if you really want to use my letter, then I guess that should be fine.

    Ok those would work

    Also what I meant when I asked you guys to write a paragraph or something I meant like state exactly what we are doing. Like what you would put in the Chicago paper to let everyone know what we are doing? You know what I mean?
