How can you use buncee to stay in touch? Here are some examples. Let’s say, your husband is overseas and is going to miss your son’s first T-ball game…you can record the game, load it on your YouTube account and post it into buncee along with a fun background, a couple pictures of the game, a personal message, and a few clip art images. On the days you wake up and you’re really missing your family member who is deployed, you could put together a collage of pictures, add in a video of your favorite song, or a song that is happy and would make his or her day, and a personal message…there’s no way that wouldn’t put a smile on someone’s face!
