Early on in his life, my father developed a passion for seeing the world through the lens of a camera. He spent countless hours capturing our childhood – it’s because of him my extended family has amazing memories captured on film to share with our future generations.
My father started digitizing and organizing these memories to ensure they were preserved for his entire family. Before he passed away, he asked me and my brothers to do things for him in the future like delivering specific cards to mom on birthdays and flowers on their anniversary. He crafted a handmade card for my young niece for us to deliver when she gets married.
One day this question popped in my head – what if I’m not here tomorrow? How will these memories get delivered? There has to be a better way. A modern way. A secure way to preserve these memories for generations.
After speaking to friends, coworkers, neighbors – everyone has their own solution that works for their family. The more people I spoke with the more stories I heard and it helped inspire me to build a technology that can solve this problem for not just my family, but for the entire world.
We wanted to build a generational platform that would allow users to communicate across time. With CircleIt, you can send cards to any future date and time. For example I can have CircleIt deliver a card full of wisdom and well wishes to my 2-year-old nephew on his future wedding day – possibly decades from now. All I have to do is set the occasion, even if I don’t know the actual date, and our smart technology will take care of the rest.
On CircleIt you can also build and nurture your digital family tree, send old home movies, record voice messages, share vintage family photos and even order physical gifts – all to be delivered at just the right time in the future.
Delivering letters, photographs, and gifts for family members who are no longer with us is nothing new. But the way we’ve done it hasn’t changed for the last 100 years. It’s time to take that same old methodology and bring it into the 21st century. That is what CircleIt was built for.
