Q. Why do I sometimes get more than one milestone postcard emails in a day, and other days get none?

A. It depends on when your team reaches the place on the route where the postcard email is generated. This depends on how fast your team makes progress.  In addition, the milestones are closer together in Port-au-Prince than they are out in the countryside.

Q. Can I forward the postcards to others?

A. Yes! Please do! In this way, we might get more people to contribute.

Q. My smart device seems to miss my exercises, or it doublecounts my exercises.

A. I've had this problem with Google Fit. Sometimes it will post entries a day late. If it misses an exercise, you can add it manually on your smartphone or laptop at myvirtualmission.com.  If there are duplicate entries and you want to get rid of one, there's an X in the upper right you can use to delete an entry (circled in red below).
