A Public Memorial for a Stanford Fellow

When a community loses a public figure, the grief is shared and public. The deceased person touched many lives and will continue to impact loved ones and community members well into the future. In our digital world it simply isn't enough to have a public memorial service managed by the family, and an obituary for out-of-towners to read.

For well-loved public figures, it's best practice to create a public memorial page or online memorial for community members to see, contribute to, and share via social media. An accessible memorial website allows people from all locations and walks of life to honor the life and death of a significant person, and to offer their condolences.

Why is a Kudoboard great for online memorials? ❤️

It’s a thoughtful and heartfelt way to bring family members, friends, and colleagues together to honor the life of a loved one. Everyone can add messages, photos, and videos of tribute. Learn more.

Graduation Group Card with Kudoboard

It's graduation season, everyone! From universities to high school to adorable pretend-playing preschools—when spring is in swing, it's time to don the cap and gown, grab some flowers, and prepare to celebrate. Graduation is more than just a formality signaling the successful completion of a course of education. Graduation is a celebration of the graduate and all they've become. It's a chance to share love and admiration, and a chance to come together.

When you start to receive graduation announcements in the early spring months, you might start hoarding cash or write down a reminder to withdraw some fresh bills from the ATM or bank to send along with your graduation wishes. (We've also got great non-cash graduation gift ideas!) Slipping a cash gift into a graduation card is a tradition, meant to help them fund their next great adventure (such as their next degree, a trip, a wedding, or a house downpayment). But when you get a graduation announcement or invitation from someone you love, take it to the next level with a group greeting card from Kudoboard.

Why is a Kudoboard a great way to say congratulations? 👩‍🎓

It’s a thoughtful and heartfelt way to show a loved one how much they’re cared about and appreciated! Learn more

Online Photo Contests Made Easy with Kudoboard

If you're like me, you will drop everything to see cute pet pictures. It's even more fun if you get to cast a vote!

There are so many fantastic reasons to create an online photo contest. During the pandemic, we saw Halloween Costume Photo Contests for workplaces that had gone remote. Large organizations like universities or corporations might use a special event board to share photos or memories for a particular event. It doesn't have to be National Geographic to make a great photography contest. The winning images might only enjoy bragging rights as a main prize (or perhaps a cash prize if you're serious!). Photography contests are still a great way to bring your organization together and to create an impressive photo gallery.

Planning an organization event? ❤️

Kudoboard is the perfect tool to collect messages, photos, videos, and more. Learn more about our company event offerings here.

Our personal favorite might be this Cutest Pet Photo Contest put on by Washtenaw Community College. Students and faculty were invited to upload a photo submission of their pets of all types for this lighthearted contest.

With Kudoboard, it's easy to create an online bulletin board, shout-out wall, photo contest, or any other custom event board to meet the needs of your organization. A huge thanks to Washtenaw Community College for letting us share this adorable photography contest board, and keep those cute pets coming our way!

The Ultimate Get Well Group Card

Injuries.

Illness. 

Surgery. 

Medical Procedures. 

Quarantine.

Or just a mutant version of the common cold. 

There are many reasons why a coworker, friend, family member, or loved one is missing from regular activity. Healing takes time, and courteous people keep their germs to themselves. (Especially in this post-pandemic world.)

Kudoboard is the perfect get well soon card 🤒

A Kudoboard business plan makes group cards, birthdays, shout-outs, and retirements SO much easier. Check out our business plans.

No matter the reason, when someone is stuck at home missing the action, sending a group get well soon card can be a thoughtful way to let them know they’re missed and to send happy, healing wishes for a speedy recovery. Get well soon cards are a little different from a birthday card, sympathy card, or other types of group greeting card, as they can be both an empathetic AND optimistic message, but they’re still a perfect way to say “We’re thinking of you.” 

An Injury in Indiana

One of our favorite group get well soon cards was a Kudoboard created by the Indiana Pacers’ marketing team, when NBA all-star Victor Oladipo suffered a season-ending injury after rupturing the quad tendon on his right knee in a win over Toronto on January 23rd, 2019.  

As anyone who has spent time in Indiana knows—that state loves its basketball.  While they were heartbroken that their star would be out, they also wanted to let him know that they were behind him 100% in his recovery and eventual return. 

Once the Pacers marketing team created Olidapo an online group greeting card, they put it on their website and let the fans take it from there. Nearly 1000 (!!!!) posts and well wishes later, Olidapo has one of the larger Kudoboards that’s ever been created.

Group Get Well Soon Cards from Kudoboard

If you’re missing a team member out with an illness, or your sister just underwent surgery, a group get well soon card is a quick and easy way to show them you care and to send them the positive message of hope and wishes they need to heal. 

With Kudoboard, a virtual get well soon card takes only moments to set up. Create your board by selecting a custom card design or card template, invite others to contribute a personal message via email or with the link, and then schedule the delivery to the healing recipient. It really is that easy. It really is that easy to send a photo card and message that makes them smile. (Seriously. Try it for birthday cards, anniversary cards, and any occasion cards you can think of!) Bonus points are given if you pair your speedy recovery card with flowers or a chicken noodle soup delivery. 

Don’t hesitate to share the love—even if you don’t want to share any germs. Start your virtual get well soon card today! 

Honoring an All-Star with Kudoboard

Joan Joyce is a legend by any standard. As an athlete, Joan Joyce was a 15 time All-American, played on 4 World Series teams, boasted 150 no-hitters, and even struck out Ted Williams and Hank Aaron (ever heard of 'em?). Her legacy continued as a coach at Florida Atlantic University, where she recently celebrated her 1,000th win as an NCAA softball coach.

Joan's path left an impact on countless athletes and sports fans, so her passing this week brought leagues of people together to share sympathy messages in her memory.

“Joan’s legacy will live on at the university and across the country through the generations of young women she inspired to play – and excel at – softball and golf.”

John Kelly, FAU President

Check out Joan's impressive Memorial website here, including photos, videos, and memories from her epic career. Thank you, Joan, for inspiring generations of athletes and your dedication to sports—and thank you FAU for sharing this inspiring board.

Thanking Health Care Providers

This past week has marked 2 years since the worldwide shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time, we had no idea what was in store for us, but looking back we stand amazed at the dedication and sacrifice displayed by healthcare workers throughout this trial.

The University of Virginia hospital (UVA) knew their providers deserved some thanks, so they created a "Reflections and Hope" Virtual Gratitude Wall. It includes messages, images, and even a video of thanks from patients and staff.

I'm humbled to be a part of UVA Health and proud to stand with our physicians, APPs and care teams no matter what lies ahead. You are what makes UVA special. Thank you for your incredible work.

Art Saavedra, MD, President, UVA Physicians Group

Thank you to all of our Medical Center team members for bringing their very best every day over the last two years. It has truly taken all of us to keep our doors open to patients and provide them with the best care possible in the middle of a pandemic. I'm incredibly proud of your teamwork, courage, skill, and dedication to caring for both your patients and each other.

Wendy Horton

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those in health care who have given so much over the past two years, and to thank UVA Health for letting us share your stories of gratitude and success.

Saying Thank You & Farewell as a Team

When a valued team member leaves, whether for a new adventure or retirement (the greatest adventure of all), a simple "thank you" or "goodbye" never seems to be enough.

When D'Arcy left his workplace, his colleagues filled an entire farewell group card with messages, funny memories, photos, and expressions of gratitude.

D'Arcy, my friend, you will be so tremendously missed at our PFAC meetings. I have saved this image of you on my desktop so that when I'm missing you a lot I can pop up this reminder of how I mostly saw you the last two years. haha! I know this isn't goodbye so I'm not going to get too sentimental. I expect to still have our valuable phone chats when we need them.

Lisa

Being so open with your story has changed hearts and minds for the better. You are such an inspiration. I know that our paths will continue to cross along this journey.

Sue

It has been an absolute privilege and honor to work with you over these past 2 years. Your bravery and dedication to upholding our health system to be better has been an inspiration to many, and your voice will be forever heard in the HQCA's work.

Bringing Birds of a Feather Together with Kudoboard

Today we're excited to tell you about one of the most unique Kudoboard uses we've ever seen—uniting a community of bird-watchers across the globe.

Steller's Sea Eagle is a very large and very rare bird, so once it was sighted in Maine, people started coming from all over the country to see "Stella." Maine Audubon started hearing incredible stories from passionate birders about their lifelong quest to see the eagle, but the accounts and photographs were scattered across social media platforms, GroupMe texts, and oral anecdotes.
