VidDay allows you to crowdsource video clips, photos, and text cards to include in a beautiful video theme of your choice — unlike our competitors, who only enable video clips.

You can get started for free with full access to our easy-to-use features:
Invite as many people as you want.
Upload and collect video clips and photos, and add text cards.
View, edit, and manage all your media.
Choose a video theme and background music.
Create previews of your video montage.
Access to our world-class customer support.
When you're happy and ready to finalize your video, you can continue to pay and receive your high-quality, 1080p HD video gift that's ready to share online with the recipient and download as a cherished keepsake.
Lastly, we donate a portion of our net proceeds to planting trees. So far, we've planted over 100,000 trees around the world.
Plus, our Get Well videos are free to help people support those who need it most.
Let's dive deeper into why VidDay is an excellent option for you:

You'll never lose or misplace your videos.

Less is more.
We know that people from all walks of life use VidDay, so we keep it simple and easy to use.

Add Various Kinds of Media
With VidDay, you can mix and match a variety of media to create a one-of-a-kind video.
Videos and Photos
You can upload video greetings, old video clips, and photos.
Finding old photos is easy because you can connect to your Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive, or Dropbox account to import your images directly into your event page.
People can submit audio messages because we get it; some folks are camera shy.
You can also add text cards throughout your video. They're perfect for adding context to videos or photos. And they can be pretty handy if you want to mark sections within your video gift.
Animated GIFs and Stock Photos
And since it's a celebration, you can have fun importing animated GIFs from a free GIPHY library. Or import fun photos from a free image gallery. It's all integrated, so you can do it without leaving your event page.
Simple Editing Tools
Not a graphic designer or video editor? No problem. We offer easy-to-use editing tools. But you don't need to edit your media if you don't want to. It's just a little extra to help make your videos and photos look their best.

On the other end of the spectrum, you can use our Collage themes to build background scenes with your uploaded photos so that a collage of memories compliments your media. It can be very stunning.

Inviting People to Participate
Quickly sending invitations from one place is easy with Smart Invites.
Do a bulk email invite by quickly connecting to your Google contacts, uploading a spreadsheet of email contacts, or simply entering individual email addresses.
And, of course, you always have the option to send invites using your favorite messaging platform, like text messaging, Messenger, or WhatsApp, to name a few.
It's entirely up to you to invite people in the way that feels most comfortable to you.
Invite List: Tracking Participation
You can see if the people you invite through Smart Invites open and click their email invitation. You'll also get a status update once they RSVP and submit a piece of media.
The reality is that people are busy. So even though they're excited to submit a video greeting or photo, they often procrastinate.
So, leading up to the submission deadline, VidDay sends friendly auto-reminders to your invite list. That way, no one will forget to submit and feel left out.
Those you invite outside Smart Invites can RSVP to join your invite list.
Need to send a quick update or note to everyone? That's easy with broadcasting. You can send a message to your invite list with the click of a button. They'll receive an email from VidDay on your behalf with your announcement.
Group Gift Cards
Like the cherry on top, you can send a digital gift card with your video gift. You can even let invitees chip in.
Collected gift card funds get sent with the video gift, and the recipient claims funds for a gift card of their liking.
With lots of popular brands to choose from, you can trust they'll find something perfect for them.
Gift Wrap Effect
Is it really a gift if it's not wrapped?
We know how important the presentation of a gift can be. The excitement of unwrapping a gift adds to the experience.
Choose from over a dozen beautiful digital wrapping papers for your video gift.
Order Keepsakes: USB and DVD
A beautiful way to preserve your video — order a custom-made USB or DVD that you can proudly display on a shelf.
The USB cover, DVD cover, and disc come with stunning personalized artwork.
Recipient Thank You Video
The best part of giving a gift is seeing the reaction. VidDay recipients are overcome with love and appreciation.
The recipient's thank you video message is posted under the video gift. So all those who participated can watch it and feel the love.
It's a beautiful way to end the most meaningful gift they've ever received.
World-Class Customer Service
If you need a little help along the way, we have some world-class customer service superstars here to help guide you. We here at VidDay strive to make a positive customer experience a staple of our business.
You are important to us.
That's why every time you use our customer service Live Chat, you speak with a real human being — there are no robots behind the bot! Instead, it's actual real humans who want to help.
We're always available to help.
We don't mean to toot our own horn, but our customer service team is so friendly and helpful that you'll want to be friends with them.
Privacy is important to us, just like it is to you.
As the owner of your video, you have complete control over the privacy settings of your published video. You can choose whether or not you want it private, just for you and the recipient, or if you want to make it public for all the contributors to see.
When contributors submit their media to you, they cannot see anything. All that contributors see is a submission page where it's asking them to submit their media. There is no way for contributors to see any media submitted or access your account.
We Plant Trees
VidDay is an environmentally friendly gift.
We're proud to support global reforestation efforts by donating a portion of the proceeds to planting trees.
Sustainability is at the core of our business. So while we help people reduce their carbon footprint by offering an eco-friendly gift, it's essential to have another way to help the environment.
So let's grow a forest together!
Free Get Well Videos
That's right, Get Well Videos are free because love and support make a difference when in need.
That's why all Get Well Videos are 100% free.
