Grasket App Helps Deployed Troops Share Wish Lists With Loved Ones Overseas
A new online app aims to help deployed troops send wish lists to friends and family overseas.
Grasket describes itself as a “modern-day care package creation tool.”
Targeted to deployed soldiers, sailors and airmen, users sign up for the service with their military-linked Facebook accounts or email addresses. They then place items that are sold online from any website into their “grasket,” and share the list over Twitter, Facebook or email. To see the process in detail, check out the video above.
“We…make it easy for others to purchase the things that you have earmarked,” creator Tim Fisher said in a Q&A.
Fisher, who served in the United States Army, developed Grasket as a way to “give back” to the military.
“I built a tool that I would have found useful when I was deployed overseas,” he said. “It is also a great tool for wounded warriors/care givers to connect with supporters and create lists of products they need to aid in the recovery process.
Military personnel, would you use this app while deployed overseas? Tell us in the comments below.
