Skypod’s innovative platform empowers people to share messages in the form of photos, videos and other files with loved ones on a specific date in the future. Messages delivered on your terms, even if you might not be there to deliver them in person
During a time of unprecedented uncertainty, Skypod is doing its part by donating up to $1 million in free credits to first responders including police, doctors, nurses, healthcare workers and their patients. Skypod is a safe, secure, encrypted digital time capsule that can deliver memories and messages to loved ones both during, and after life. The time-released videos and photos are a way for those facing the challenges ahead to ensure their loved ones will receive personal messages no matter what happens amid the global COVID-19 crisis.
Skypod is offering 20,000 first responders, healthcare workers and their patients an opportunity to sign up for a new account at www.skypod.com/together. Each account will receive $50 to be used to create Skypods for their family and friends (Skypods start at $2.99). No credit card is needed, no strings attached. The free credits will allow the recipient of the donation to send multiple Skypod messages to loved ones.
The donation is the company’s way of giving back and offering hope to the dedicated men and women who are putting their lives on the line every day and providing some peace of mind that their loved ones will hear from them.
“We wanted to do our part by being there for the brave men and women who are risking their lives to keep families together, including their patients in the hospital,” said Skypod Founder and CEO Richard Jardine. “People need compassion and a sense of relief during these uncertain times. My co-founders and I are proud to offer $1 million in Skypod credits for frontline workers and their patients as our contribution in the fight against COVID-19. We want to ensure precious messages and memories are shared, especially during these difficult times.”
Skypod was inspired by the many routine flights Jardine has taken over the years, looking out above the clouds and wondering, “What if today was my last day? What would happen to my family, my friends? How would I be remembered? I have so many life lessons, stories and memories to share with loved ones.” From there, the idea struck him to create a cloud platform that could store all the “things that matter” and make them “viewable” on specific times and dates in the future. This way he would never risk missing a birthday, holiday, or special occasion.
Skypod’s cloud-based platform offers users multiple size options with flexible delivery dates and times suited for each user’s needs. Skypod can be accessed from any smartphone, tablet, or computer anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
