People have been joining PodKeeper and on their own have created Pods to organize family gatherings this holiday season.

PodKeeper, the online communication tool that keeps parents organized like never before (, is excited to share the news that our members have created a new use for – easy planning for gatherings with family and friends this holiday season.

"It's been exciting to see how parents have been using PodKeeper in so many ways beyond coordinating their kids' group activities," said Steven Sacks, PodKeeper Co-Founder. "People have been joining PodKeeper and on their own have created Pods to organize family gatherings this holiday season. This time of year is typically filled with get-togethers, and coordinating them can be stressful and time consuming. Starting this year, the millions of families in the U.S. and around the world who are planning holiday events can use PodKeeper to make it easier than ever. And it's 100% free."

PodKeeper helps parents organize these events with ease:

  • Christmas Party or Holiday Party with friends and family
  • Holiday Party for a small company or startup
  • Christmas Eve Dinner
  • Christmas Day with extended family
  • Holiday Weekend at grandparents
  • Football Watching Party
  • New Year’s Eve Party
  • Vacation at Ski House or Beach House

Rather than having an online party invitation or email chain to try to coordinate all these activities this holiday season, by using a family or group of friends has a private online group (called a Pod) to keep organized. This includes hosting an event where people can RSVP and receive reminders as the event gets closer. Everyone can also keep track of various discussion topics, such as Gift Giving, Meal Planning, and Flight Information. In addition, Pod members can create a sign up list to bring food items or participate in a Secret Santa, Yankee Swap or White Elephant Gift Exchange.

"The first item on every parent’s holiday party planning checklist should be to go to and create a Pod," continued Sacks, an online product management veteran who is based in Charlotte, North Carolina but is originally from New York City. "Parents can then easily invite guests using their email addresses and an email invitation is sent out to let everyone know the details about the festive event. Within the Pod it’s easy to keep track of RSVPs, view directions to the event, and see who is bringing what. PodKeeper keeps people significantly more organized than using an Evite or an email chain."

To start getting organized today, parents and group leaders can simply go to from their desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone and create a Pod.
