There has been a movement on Facebook urging people to post their senior pictures from high school as a measure of support for the Class of 2020, who, more likely than not, will be without their senior year traditions including prom and graduation. I’m not sure seeing pictures of others will help at all, but something that could be of benefit is a video tribute.
The company Tribute estimates that during COVID there will be 50 million birthdays, 2 million graduations, 400K births and 400K weddings that will be impacted. Their contribution to lessening the blow of these missed events is to offer a free video tribute to anyone who has been affected by the quarantine. They offer a simple process to solicit email messages from friends, string them together and share the final product.
Even post-virus, think of how you could use this type of tribute for many occasions: welcoming a remote employee to the team, offering a lasting farewell to those departing the organization, congratulating a teammate on a great performance or having presenters set the stage for attendees before a virtual conference.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, just think of the impact from a video tribute (especially if it’s free). Who can you honor today?
