Pass It Down reinvents the greeting card to help capture family memories
greetingStory™ makes it simple and fun to capture family stories one greeting card at a time.
Chattanooga, Tenn. (July 18th, 2017) – Pass It Down, an award-winning storytelling platform that makes it easy to digitally record and preserve family memories, announced today the launch of its first physical product, greetingStory™. greetingStory™ reinvents the greeting card, making it easy to capture family memories and handwriting, reconnect with loved ones and preserve family stories.
“Our goal at Pass It Down is to create innovative and affordable ways for every family to capture their treasured memories,” said Pass It Down CEO and Founder Chris Cummings. “Today’s technology allows us to simplify everything we do, and we think capturing and sharing family memories should be no different. [CC1] With the launch of greetingStory™, families have an effortless, interactive and effective way to capture each of their special memories, one question at a time.”
greetingStory™ is great in its simplicity. Each greetingStory™ card features a question on the cover, with included tips and instructions from top biographers, to help guide loved one in sharing their memories. The cards feature two prominent spaces to share memories and to capture loved one’s handwriting. Every card includes a URL on the back, allowing the user to upload a loved one’s story into the Pass It Down platform. The platform can also host additional video, audio, text and photos, completing the story. A complete story can be shared with the entire family, serving as a permanent, digital memory book for everyone.
“Imagine being able to send your mom or dad 24 cards a year, in a personalized envelope, asking about their life and their legacy. We automate the process for families and our pre-paid return envelopes ensure that it is extremely simple for your relative to get the cards back to you” said Cummings.
