It is often a good idea to build a chapel at a war memorial site. You have to keep it in mind that many of the people who visit war memorial sites are folks whose relatives were buried there. So they visit with the intention of commemorating and celebrating the lives of the heroes buried there. And many people like to have some sort of religious service, as part of the commemoration and celebration of lives of their departed kin. Some also like to have an opportunity to pray for the souls of the departed. Furthermore, many people visit war memorial sites on Sundays. Therefore if you have a chapel on the war memorial site, you can cater for the needs of those people who visit the war memorial sites on Sundays.
In building a chapel at a war memorial site, you need to:
- Identify where exactly the chapel is to be located: so you need to survey the entire war memorial site, to identify the spot that would be most ideal for the chapel.
- Obtain funds to build the chapel: you can do this through traditional fundraising campaigns. You can also do this through the increasingly popular online fundraising campaigns – including crowd-funding. You can’t afford to underestimate the power of web-based fundraising campaigns, especially in an age where most of the people receive their paychecks online. See, we are in an age when even conservative government departments have embraced the power of the Internet. That is why we have portals like the one accessible at www.liteblue.usps.gov. The said portal is meant to serve folks who work for the postal service, and it is commonly referred to as the liteblue extranet. So, yes, there is real potential for you to raise the funds you need for the chapel online.
- Get a contractor to do the actual construction: this should ideally be a reputable contractor, who will be able to deliver the project on time and at a reasonable cost.
- Launch the chapel officially: the objective here is to get people to know that there is actually a chapel at the war memorial site. This way, the folks who donated funds towards the chapel’s construction also get to know that their funds were well spent.
