FuneralFlowers.com is pleased to announce the launch of HonorALife.com, a free online consumer service that enables users to create free online memorial sites that can be shared via social media with friends and family. HonorALife.com was created to give consumers the tools and content to celebrate life – past and present.
As the online voice for FuneralFlowers.com’s Honor|Save|Change “shared value” program, HonorALife.com donates 10% of the company’s gross profits to recognized charitable organizations. HonorALife.com also offers a free obituary service that contains over 90% of the nation’s obituaries. It is updated daily and adds over 4500 new records each week.
Company president Peter McBride says the HonorALife.com platform provides a social voice for FuneralFlowers.com’s audience and gives exceptional tools and content at no cost. “We have a long-standing goal to connect with our customers in a meaningful way and create real relationships that are authentic and endure. We have a great story that is worthy of being told and we are delighted to create a site that allows people to tell their stories just as effectively,” says McBride.
McBride says he was recently struck by the poor user experience created on other websites in the industry and decided to create something different for his own audience. He says many of his colleagues rely on revenue from ads that shout for attention and are often inappropriate in a bereavement environment. By contrast, HonorALife.com is a free service and is ad-free aside from Funeralflowers.com's images.
