BROOKLYN, New York — Birthdays, weddings, graduations, and holidays are just a few of the memorable moments being put on hold by the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Now a simple online service called Tribute is here to help everyone connect during this difficult time.

They're short video montages that you can put together for someone special, with or without the help of other people you know, and the finished product is then sent in the mail in a video card, uploaded to a flash drive, or shared via a web link.

You start by saying who the Tribute is for, selecting what the occasion is, then choose the date for when you need the videos sent to you by (giving yourself time to edit it together), and then enter your email address.

Once that's all done, you send out invites to any contributors you may have, like family, friends. classmates, or colleagues.

Andrew Horn, the Co-Founder and CEO of Tribute said, "Just drop in some emails, you could just hit record, they can drop in the video from any device, and then it’s just a simple drag and drop editor, so you can put videos wherever you want."

If you're not very tech-savvy, you can just pay someone else to help you too.

"We even have a concierge service, so if you don’t want to do anything, you can just pay one of our people and someone will take care of the entire video and edit for you," said Horn.

Truth be told, if someone of the older generation can figure it out, maybe you can too.

Horn said, "We’ve had more than a few octogenarians creating their own tributes this year."

Tribute is offering free D.I.Y. Tributes through the end of 2020 so that you can celebrate the people that matter most to you.
