Purchase LifeOnRecord

"I thought this gift idea had potential, but at the beginning I thought it might end up kind of cheesy. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it was far from cheesy, and, in fact, was appreciated by not only the recipient, but also the people doing the recordings. They appreciated the opportunity to say what they had always wanted to say, but were never really given the opportunity to follow through until Life on Record."

Got Questions? We have Answers...

Here are the top 5 frequently asked questions we receive from our customers.

You can create one of the most memorable gifts in the world in as little as 1-2 days.  We've had people purchase LifeOnRecord one afternoon, email everyone (and post on Facebook) that same evening asking them to call in within the next 24 hours, and present the recordings to the recipient the very next evening. On the other hand, people that love to plan things ahead will sign-up months before an event. LifeOnRecord is flexible to your timeline. Here are some helpful tips if you are short on time:
  • You will receive your account instructions email within just a few minutes after ordering online (if you don't see it right away, make sure to check your spam or junk folder). We provide a sample communication that you can copy and paste to send to people. That communication asks others to forward the email on, so that you can cast the net wide.
  • People really don't need that much time to call in. Just make sure you give them a deadline (we give you some helpful tips in your account instructions email).
  • Even if you order a keepsake, you can deliver the recordings electronically to the recipient on the day of the event, and tell them the nice keepsake will arrive later. That way the recipient has something to play on their birthday or anniversary, and can still look forward to receiving a keepsake.
  • If the recipient lives far away you can send them a link to a special public web page just for them that has the recordings. You can label the recordings so they are meaningful (e.g. "Bob Smith's Birthday Wish"), and sequence them in a way that makes sense to make it more meaningful.
  • You can request the keepsake at any point within a year after ordering. As long as you request the keepsake by 3PM Central time, we ship it out the next business day. Keepsakes take 3-6 days to arrive with the free shipping option, although delivery time is not guaranteed.  We also have options to ship via USPS Priority Mail (2-3 days), FedEx 2-Day, and FedEx Overnight.
LifeOnRecord is available from every country on the planet! Callers from the US, Canada, and Caribbean can call toll-free: 1-800-437-3009. Callers from outside the US, Canada, and Caribbean have six free options to contribute recordings:
  1. Use Skype - Callers can phone-in by dialing 1-800-437-3009 using Skype (this is treated as a free call in most countries). If you are in a country that does not allow free Skype calling to toll free numbers, you can instead make a free call to the Skype name "LifeOnRecord1" which will route you to the same place as the toll-free number. Note: The Skype User LifeOnRecord1 may not show as online in Skype, but you will still be able to connect to it. You may need to wait a few seconds for the connection to be made.
  2. Use one of our "local" global numbers. Callers can dial one of the local country phone numbers listed below which route directly to LifeOnRecord.

My younger sister Jane was a 47 year old lawyer, college professor, and the single mother of a seven year old son when, about 11 years ago, she first developed symptoms of muscle weakness and incoordination. Ultimately, it was determined that Jane had that most horrifying disease – ALS – also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, an progressive and invariably fatal motor neuron disease. Due to the young age of her son at diagnosis, Jane opted to live as a paralyzed and ventilator-dependent person in order to continue participation in raising her son and to see him grow to adulthood, if possible. Time went on and Jane was forced to medically retire from her faculty position when she could no longer walk or drive safely to work. She eventually became a resident at an assisted living facility for neurologically ill/impaired individuals. This past December, I was struggling to come up with a Christmas gift idea for Jane. What do you give a totally paralyzed, and ventilator dependent person, but who’s mind is still as sharp and alert as ever? I googled, “Christmas gifts for hospice patients”, and found Life on Record. Jane received several calls from her former colleagues, friends, and family to her Life on Record 800 message line. Jane died March 4, 2015. In the week prior to her death, on her last day of consciousness, she listened to her messages. I could tell that they pleased her enormously, and I was so thankful to have found Life on Record for her. I am so happy and grateful for your service! I believe my sister died just a little happier due to her messages from Life on Record.
Cynthia P. Mathews MS, APRN
What a great way to celebrate our parents 63rd Wedding Anniversary. The recordings from our family and friends to our parents made this gift so unique and truly a time capsule! What a great idea and you guys were so easy to work with. Any questions we had you answered quickly and efficiently. Thank you!
Linda Hoffman
I received a Life on Record cd for my 40th birthday last week. When I was handed the cd, I had no idea what it was. What a fantastic idea – heartwarming, personal and something to cherish for a long time. If you are looking for a way to commemorate a special date, this is perfect!
Jennifer K. Fortune
Love LifeOnRecor”! I did this for my husband’s 50th Birthday. It was easy to do, the sight is well put together and the CD turned out wonderful! I also had trouble recieving my first copy which I am sure got lost in mail. I voiced my concerns to the staff and they sent me out a new copy free of charge!!!

I ordered a C.D. for my husband’s 50th birthday and he loved it. It was a perfect touch for his surprise party. Even people who weren’t able to make his party called and left a message. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
