Do you remember your graduation? Back when I graduated, we sent out paper invites to all my family and friends. Facebook events were around, but hardly anyone used it. None of my family members used it, that’s for sure. Even now, people don’t really respond to anything on Facebook like that.

Retirement is one of the most important events of our life cycle. Till the day of the retirement every one pushes themselves to work more and more and will lead a demanding and busy life. Retirement ceremonies are at times emotionally challenging for the person who is retiring and for their family members as well. I wonder why there are not many retirement planners like wedding planners.

Couple of years before, I was invited to my friends father’s retirement ceremony. I didn’t realize that retirement ceremony needs so much of planning till I attended it. According to my friend, compiling the information of the retiree, preparing retiree’s biography speech is the biggest challenge followed by inviting people for such a big surprise party. Number of his colleagues attended and gave speeches in the ceremony along with the family members. I could see that the other attendees were bored of colleagues and relatives long speeches.

If a person is working in the same location for long time, there will be a lot to share from friends and family members. Inwiter helps the colleagues and family members with Custom Video Greetings feature, which will be attractive and less boring, as it is full of images, videos and with the back ground music. Like in the birth day parties where kids open the birthday gifts, the retiree can have fun opening each of the Video Greeting in front of the attendees on a projector or now a days on the TV.

Using Inwiter’s video greeting feature, family members can compile all the images, videos available into a nice greeting. Collect all the photos from child hood, school life, if he changed number of jobs, include at least one photo from each Job and add details on each image or video as captions. You can also add a nice background music which goes well for the occasion. In the same way, colleagues can create video greetings from their image or video collection and make the retirement party memorable for everyone.

More than any one, it will be less painful for the retiree and will be very exciting and memorable retirement party for everyone who attended. It is the best tribute to the person who worked hard and supported the family and friends for decades. Inwiter helps you to capture the personal feelings and emotions in the form of Video Greetings. Let’s greet and make the next retirement party memorable using Inwiter’s Video Greetings.

I was researching about how many Mothers Day Greeting Cards and Father’s Day Greeting cards are being sent every year to estimate the upcoming work load on our Inwiter’s team. I came across a wonderful Info-graph which explains and compares both the occasions with eye catching visuals.

Infograph Credited by Daily-infographic.

Undoubtedly Mothers day is more popular than Father’s day. In fact if you see the numbers, there are 13 million more number of mothers than fathers. As per American Greeting Card Association, Mother’s Day uses 133 million greeting cards where as Father’s day uses 90 million. Around 40 countries celebrate Mothers day. Father’s day started little late as well getting inspired from Mother’s day celebrations.

I believe it is better to keep it simple and Celebrate both. Create a memorable Video Greeting using Inwiter for Mother’s day and Father’s Day. Collect your Moms and Dads memorable images, videos and create a personalized video greeting. Add flavor by adding funny captions, message on each image or video. We added number of music tracks this week. Add soothing background music and send it to your Mom and Dad.

Graduation Day is one proud moment in any student’s life. It is a majestic moment for their parents, teachers, friends and for people who care and value them. It is the day when they complete their education and are free to step into the world and make their own career decisions. It is one of the important occasions that is often described as a “Rite of Passage” in the life of any student.

If you attend any graduation ceremony, it is full of energy and filled with emotional moments, happiness, laughter, hats thrown in the sky and tears of joy and sadness of departing with their friends. It is a moment of pride for a student as well as the parents with a sense of achievement.

Graduation-Day

In United States alone, about 3.4 million students are expected to graduate from high school in 2012-13. It is expected that the average number of college graduates per year in US is around 1,750,000. Graduation is the fifth most important occasion to buy greeting cards. As per American Greeting Card association, 67 million units are purchased for Graduation ceremonies in USA every year.

Last year I attended one of my friends graduation party in Virginia. I spent around 2 hours searching for a greeting card in couple of shops. Couldn’t find the one I wanted. Finally bought one, but I was not happy with the message they have on the card. It is printed and couldn’t change the message. It was very difficult to find the card you want. Most of the cards are repeated and stereo type in nature.

If you are planning to attend any of your family members or friends Graduation party, you don’t need to go through the same pain I went through last year. Inwiter provides you a web application where you can create your own Video Greeting congratulating the Grad in minutes. You can use your images, videos and images or videos of the person who is graduating. Arrange and shuffle them around the way you want, add your own message on the image or video, add nice back ground music provided and send it. To make it more personalized, you can also record your own personal video message as part of the Video Greeting.

Graduation Day is a glorious movement in any student’s life. It is the first step of the new journey in his/her life. Congratulate the new Grad with a very personalized and thought provoking Video Greeting.

Our siblings are our best friends and family members. They know us better than anyone and understand our quirky ways. At least that’s the case with most brothers and sisters. So how do you step outside the box and show them you care? Traditional birthday cards just don’t seem to cut it anymore. They’re boring and so impersonal.

According to Earth Day Network, 192 countries and over one billion people are participating in Earth Day celebrations this year. What is Carbon Foot Print to start with? Here is the simple explanation I found to understand the carbon footprint myself and I would like to share it with you all. You leave footprints when you walk in the sand, the mud and when you’ve got wet feet. You also leave something called a carbon footprint. You can’t see your carbon footprint, but it impacts the earth and leaves a mark just like the ones in the sand and the mud do.

When you use fossil fuels, like heating oil to keep your house warm or gasoline for your family’s car, these things create carbon dioxide, also called CO2. Carbon dioxide is called a greenhouse gas. Many scientists believe that greenhouse gases are making the earth too warm. Your carbon footprint is the total amount of CO2 you create. A big carbon footprint is bad for the planet.

We can calculate our own foot print on the planet using Carbon Foot Print Calculator. You will be surprised to see the results. Because it is Earthy Day today, when time permits, check it out. It is estimated that, the cumulative global total of 420 billion tonnes of CO2 has been emitted between 2000 and 2011 due to human activities.

What can we do to reduce our own Carbon Foot Print on this planet? Here is the list of 101 suggestions from Green Wiki which will reduce the foot print and save you money. Let’s try to adopt 1 of the 101 suggestions today and help our planet.

Here is a video greeting I have created using Inwiter about Earth Day.

Videos and Images are more powerful than words and thus became effective way of communication. One of the reasons we can process videos and images faster than words is because of how the brain handles the information. According to Discovery health, It processes data from pictures all at once but processes text in a linear manner.

Let’s say if you write or print an invitation or greeting for any occasion,  it is less likely that the recipients will read it completely and remember it. It is proven that brain processes images faster and remembers longer than the text and words. For your next event or occasion, try to use our Video Invitation or Video Greeting feature in which you can merge multiple images and make it a video, or multiple videos into one video and add some flavor by adding text, music and send it as an Invitation or Greeting in few minutes.

It is a cool and effective way to greet your loved ones and better way to invite more guests for any event. A simple video message from the couple who is getting married, a birthday boy or from a just graduated aspirant would be much more touching and lively than sending a printed or an online typical invitation.  You can be more creative by adding event venue as part of the video invitation or video greeting. Inwiter helps you to do the video invitations or video greetings online in few minutes.

Oops… I am writing too many words for you to process, check out the below Video greeting created using Inwiter and try it out, let us know your experience and more importantly your guests response.

Add life to your invitations and greetings using Inwiter.
