buncee Helps Send Love and Support to Our Troops!

Do you have a family member or loved one in the military currently deployed? buncee.com is a great, quick, easy, way to send your love, greetings, and support with interactive digital notes sure to bring a smile to any service member’s day! buncee’s Courtney Mitterando had the opportunity to share her story in an interview with the Army Wives Radio Network on March 18th. We were thrilled to be listed as a ‘resource’ for families and are grateful for the opportunity, as several members of the buncee team know first hand what it means to have family in the service.

Here are some examples and tips on how you can stay in touch with our Troops using buncee!

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!

Does This DIY Buncee Count as a Back to School Gift?

As we’re in the midst of shopping and sharing our finds on Buncee.com, a gift for the college-goers is on the to-do list!  Today, we’ll share with you how someone send a gift in a Buncee at Buncee.com!

The creator of this Buncee (“Buncee-er”) found a fantastic DIY tutorial on the internet how to create a custom laptop (or tablet) case from some home goods, and decided to make it into a Buncee!  They compiled the images from the tutorial onto a crisp Buncee background, added a fun frame, a materials list, text, and links, and then sent it out as a gift to their DIY-enthusiast buddy and college suite-mate.

Whether it’s a “best of success” greeting card, or a mini photo album, or video collage, Buncee.com isn’t just a great place for self-expression in multi-media creations, it’s also a place of sharing!  In this case, sending a gift!

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post!  We’ll be shopping and making Buncees for back to school electronics and gadgets!

Share a Buncee, Share a Smile: Endless Summer

This is just a preview, click on the buncee above to see the full buncee!
We love Summer, and found that we can share the summer love year round when we create and share a buncee at Buncee.com!
Buncee Story: Share A Smile
The buncee you see above was created as a surprise for someone’s sister.  She adores all things summer.
So the buncee.com-user (aka buncee-er) decided to find some beach and summer-y animated gifs and create a buncee to give to the sister. When the buncee was emailed out, the buncee-er shortly after received a thank you note from the sister saying that the animated summer photos in the buncee brought a smile to her face. Later, the sister then wanted to share more smiles and shared the same buncee to her friends who also love all things summer!

We’re having a week of the endless summer here at the Buncee Blog, so stay tuned for more summer-ific buncee fun!
