It’s the holiday season, which means it’s time to share what you’re thankful for, and spread love and cheer to loved ones near and far. This year, technology is giving us new ways to connect virtually, including new apps such as Congrats and social media platforms like Facebook’s Say Thanks or Instagram video.
Congrats, a first-of-its-kind video greeting and gifting app, launched recently to shake up the greeting card industry. Designed to connect friends and loved ones in the most authentic way, Congrats allows it users to record a short video, personalize it with greeting card-like themes, and even send a gift in the form of cash. With the click of a button, the greeting is delivered instantly via text message or email, and the gift can be redeemed immediately.
Speaking of shaking up the greeting card industry, this video explains how very committed Congrats is to making sure you don’t send more cards. They are planting a tree every time you send a gift through the app. They’ve teamed up with the PATT Foundation to help restore trees in one of the most deforestation challenged regions of the world.
Congrats even has a feature to vastly improve the mass group texts you get every holiday: Start a group Congrats, and let people add their own message. Now that’s gorgeous. You can even have everyone’s video snippet sliced into one greeting so that all the cousins can say hello to Gramma at once.
So, save some trees, help the planet, reduce waste, spread some festive cheer, make Gramma happy, and claim your title as the best holiday greeting sender. What’s not to love?
