Spread Some Goodness This July

With VidDay’s mission to make a billion people smile, we are a start-up with a heart. We are harnessing the power of video to spread goodness across the globe.


spreading their goodness with a dose of goodness

VidDay brings people together by creating a meaningful gift that brings people together all while staying eco-friendly. VidDay allows you to crowdsource video clips, photos, and text cards. So you can create a beautiful video gift that the recipient will cherish forever.

“ ‘By far the best birthday present I've ever gotten!’ said my husband after viewing the video...for his 50th birthday. The process of making it was fun and easy... for such an impactful and meaningful gift! — Charley Thompson

Not only is creating a VidDay more eco-friendly than purchasing a paper greeting card, but sustainability is at the core of our business. This is why for every video purchased, a portion of the profits goes to planting trees. With over 100,000 trees planted already, we are on our way to growing a forest.



We also understand how important words of encouragement can be during a difficult time. This is why we wanted to help people during their time in need, so we decided to offer Get Well videos for free. That’s right, 100% free.
