While each of us does our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 by social distancing, life marches on! Birthdays and anniversaries simply cannot be cancelled or postponed. The earth still spins, the sun still rises and special gift giving occasions take place every day. The human spirit is being tested and people are coming through with flying colors. The vivid and countless examples of incredible creativity, heartwarming surprises and ways people are showing their love are inspiring. Here at eGifter.com, we are seeing an uptick in digital gift card deliveries by email and by text. We’re seeing the sandwich generation turn their elderly parents onto enjoying streaming tv gift cards. We’re seeing workers at organizations chipping in for group gifts to help feed children of co-workers who have fallen ill to the corona virus. And we’re seeing parents making their children feel uber special on birthdays even when the party had to be cancelled. We are bolstered by the boundless human spirit exemplified by our customers. We are inspired to continue inventing new ways to help people celebrate life and take care of each other.
In fact, at this very moment it is 7pm in my own suburban neighborhood here on Long Island. For the first time during this crisis, our local firehouse alarms are sounding. My neighbors are clapping and whoo-hooing. It’s a moving moment that underscores the entire point.
