September’s Monthly Dose of Goodness 

September is waving hello to autumn. 🍂🍁🌱


It's the time of the year when the sun starts becoming less intense and trees start losing their leaves.

Spread Some Goodness This September

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.


dose of goodness september

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 initially intimidated by undertaking this project, but it couldn't have been easier. So user friendly, and the tech support was actually helpful! The end result was even better than I had imagined.” — Allison Buford

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.
