Spread Some Goodness This May
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.
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.
“I was so very impressed by VidDay. My video turned out perfect and everyone LOVED it!!!” — Stacey Robertson-Coward
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.
