Storing your history in the style of the 21st century. A personal story from the co-founder of MyHeartwill.com fuels the passion behind the project of protecting your personal legacy.

MyHeartwill.com is a new kind of time capsule, the perfect shoebox to store and share your memories, photos, and other memorabilia with your loved ones.

I was overwhelmed emotionally but I also thought, well – I have to do this now and I want to do this for my son…Instead of writing one letter, I can create a snapshot of my life - my whole life.

Do you remember when memories were stored in shoeboxes? Ever handy, these boxes lent themselves as perfect vessels for photos and mementos in the interim of sitting down to build family scrapbooks. Of course, most families ended up with far more shoeboxes than family albums. The digital age has since stepped in to organize, preserve and share our memories much better than any shoebox. MyHeartwill.com is at the forefront of this revolution.

MyHeartwill.com is a new kind of time capsule – the perfect “shoebox.” Enabled with top-notch security and huge stores of space for your personal page, keepsakes, family biography, online photo albums and other memorabilia. Myheartwill.com hosts 10-year subscriptions at very competitive prices. The concept of a “Heartwill” is not to house something in a box. It’s a decision to preserve, protect and pass on the essence of your yesterday, today and tomorrow.

The premise of a living “Heartwill” particularly touched media expert, Chris Adams – who came to champion the My Heartwill product. In various interviews, Adams has bravely shared his own story, having lost his father in a car accident at the tender age of 10. Though the memories always lingered, time progressed - items were boxed and things were misplaced. It wasn’t until Adams’ 40th birthday that a long lost letter resurfaced – and was made a gift by his mother. Written by his father, it was addressed to a then 6-year old Adams.
Adams explains his reaction, “I was overwhelmed emotionally but I also thought, well – I have to do this now and I want to do this for my son…Instead of writing one letter, I can create a snapshot of my life - my whole life. My son will not just have a letter, but a whole look at me over time.” MyHeartwill.com works to empower this holistic take on family legacy.

Log on to Myheartwill.com today to learn more about setting up your time capsule and taking control of the stories you leave behind. It’s not just the big moments that make up life; it’s the little moments of everyday – ineffable memorabilia items that could never be contained in the clutter of a dusty shoebox.
