Celebrations — from graduations to milestone birthday parties to retirements — are different in 2020. Most of us can't have large gatherings. Tens of thousands of in-person graduations and celebrations have been cancelled.
And yet, people deserve celebration, toasts, testimonials and messages of support from friends and family.
We're trying to help make these honorees feel a little more recognized and special.
I'm a software entrepreneur, and have been working in technology for four decades, at companies like Microsoft, Expedia, and my own startups. In the Spring of 2020, I was following the discussion in the parents' Facebook group of my son's university, and started thinking that there had to be a better way for parents gather videos, photos, stories to help celebrate their childrens' graduations. I've made a few milestone birthday videos myself, and, if you're ever tried to pull one of these together, you know about the hassles involved walking everyone through how to upload videos to YouTube, collect media in various formats, or send/receive files via this or that sharing platform.
I wanted to make it simple and fun.
