Starting a VidDay

What's VidDay?

VidDay is a collaborative video maker for anyone who wants to give a unique gift. With VidDay, you can collect video messages and photos from friends to compile a beautiful video.

The best part is that VidDay makes the video for you!

How do I invite people?

You can invite as many people as you'd like to participate in the video — the more, the more fun!

All you need to do to invite others to contribute their videos and photos is to share the Event Page link.

There is no app to download. Instead, you share a link to the Event Page via email, text message, Messenger, WhatsApp, or whichever way works best for you.

Is my video gift private?

Yes, only the video creator can see the video when logged in to their VidDay account. In your VidDay account, you’ll have full control of the privacy of the video you created.

To change the privacy setting, look for the privacy toggle below the video. This toggle controls whether the video is Private or Public.

Note: The cover photo and invite message are public-facing. It’s used to ask contributors to submit their videos and pictures.

Can I download my video?

Yes, you can download the final video and keep it as a keepsake.

When logged into your VidDay account, you'll see the download button underneath the final video on the right.

Note: Smartphones and tablets cannot download large files from internet browsers. The download button won't appear on smartphones or tablets, only on desktop computers and laptops.

Can I add text or music to my video?

Yes, we have a selection of background music for you to choose from.

You can create custom messages throughout your video. Once on your Event Page, click on the plus sign, then the "T" icon. Here you can write your custom messages.

How much is a video?

You can start a video at any time, free! You can create an event and send out invitations to collect videos and photos.

You’ll only have to pay when you’re ready to finish your video.

Business Inquiries

What’s VidDays mission?

Our mission is to make a billion people smile.
Yup, that’s a lot of smiles, but we’re well on our way! Making people happy is at the core of our company.

How do you give back?

Giving back is baked into our business ideology. We want to be a positive force for people, communities, and the planet.

We’ve been giving back since the beginning of our company. Currently, VidDay is supporting global reforestation efforts by donating a portion of net proceeds to planting trees — with over 100,000 trees already planted.

Previously, VidDay donated a portion of every video sold to help build a school for children who are in critical need of an adequate learning environment. VidDay was able to impact the lives of the children in rural regions of Laos in a more significant way.

We contributed to building new classrooms, giving access to clean water and an electrical supply. School furniture including desks, textbooks, pencils, paper, etc. As well as sanitation facilities. Learn more about our partnership with S.K.L here.

What’s your current charitable initiative?

We've partnered with One Tree Planted, a 501C3 non-profit based in Vermont. Local partner organizations and community volunteers plant trees in areas where there has been deforestation.

So far, VidDay has planted over 100,000 trees in four regions, including the Amazon Rainforest, British Columbia, California, and Australia.
