How We Remember to Say Thanks to Our Long Distance Family

Living on the opposite side of the country from our entire family comes with a whole lot of obstacles, especially during birthdays and holidays. It use to be so simple to thank grandparents, aunts and uncles when they would gift the kids presents. Every time one of my three kids birthdays comes around and presents start showing up at the door, I am so determined to make sure thank you cards go back out. Unfortunately life always seems to happen and it once again completely slips my mind. Thankfully I have found the perfect solution for a simple and fun way to always remember to thank our long distance family members.

Thankr is a “thank you” app available on iOS and Android that uses a video platform to help make thanking people easier. You can choose to create a video or picture, personalize a note, pick a fun background and stamp, and send a Thankr via text/e-mail. The hope is to make thanking easy and most importantly… fun! You can use this app as a thank you for birthday gifts, birthday parties, graduation, baby shower, etc.

How We Remember to Say Thanks to Our Long Distance Family Take a video, choose a theme, send to friends via text, email or FaceBook.

It’s fun, fast and easy.

Personalizing your thank you pictures and videos is so easy and you can even add a message at the bottom. You also have the option of adjusting the picture so it fits perfectly in the frame (i gave an example in the picture down below, image on the right I zoomed in more.) Once you are done creating the perfect thank you message, simply click the little “choose recipient” bubble at the bottom of the screen and choose where the Thankr message will go.

We spend so much time on our phones capturing special moments and the majority of the photos I share with family are through text messaging anyways. So what better way to utilize those photos than to send them to friends and family with a special message? I love that I can get pictures and videos of my kids opening their gifts and send them to family with a fun picture or video… within minutes of it happening… I never forget anymore!

If you are looking for a fun and simple way to thank the special people in your life, then I highly recommend you download the Thankr app today!
