How do I invite people?

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

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

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

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.

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.
