The Hero app provides a placeholder so schools can add an image and link to a special sponsorship section on school notices/newsletter page. For example, a local business may wish to buy this space from the school for a period of time knowing that parents in the school will access this information frequently. Schools can update these messages as often as they want, and can use this as an ongoing fundraising platform!
