Last month, Lauren sat down with us to share her experiences using CircleIt and what it means to her and her family. Lauren is born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and an avid believer in the importance of preserving family history. She uses CircleIt to preserve special moments in her children’s lives and encourages her extended family to capture historic moments and candid stories to be saved for future generations.
Sharing a 21st birthday beer with your father is a rite of passage for most American youth. But what if your father has passed away before your 21st birthday arrives? For Matt Goodman, the rite of passage seemed impossible. His father passed away in 2014, when Matt was only 15 years old.
Art Shaikh, CircleIt Founder, shares “today is truly a day for celebration; the technology that was inspired by my father’s gift of handmade cards left behind after his passing is now in the hands of families around the world.” Shaikh’s father passed away in 2012 and left letters, cards and gifts for him to deliver to family members on future holidays and occasions. It’s this unique sentiment that inspired Shaikh to launch CircleIt.
Imagine getting a Christmas card from your father who’d passed 10 years ago, or maybe a birthday gift from your mom who recently passed away.
Serving as a central communication platform for families, the app is designed to preserve your legacy and store memories to be enjoyed by future generations.
