Each week, StoryWorth sends a question you’d never have thought to ask to a relative of your choosing, either through email or the app. They respond with a story, which they can either write or record using the StoryWorth app, and that is sent to you and selected family members.
StoryWorth’s collection of over 500 questions has now prompted over 80,000 stories from families around the world. Customers have called it a “great way to stay in touch with their families, bridging geographic distances,” and a tool to “elicit entertaining, surprising, and sometimes moving responses.” Stories are shared privately between customer and their families, allowing them to feel comfortable sharing every memory - including tales of childhood misadventures, pranks in the military, and even parenting advice.
Stories can be illustrated with photos, and are saved both online and in the app. They are also easy to print in a beautiful keepsake book, which can be handed down as an heirloom or given as a meaningful gift for Mother’s Day, birthdays, and more.
Co-founder and CEO Nick Baum commented, “We’ve heard from customers that they’re using these stories to initiate new conversations. So every time they get a story back from their mom or dad, the stories prompt meaningful conversations. By keeping StoryWorth’s technology as simple and accessible as possible, we want to make it easy for everybody to deepen those family connections.”
StoryWorth brings the family together across generations by sharing weekly stories from your loved ones. Insightful questions like “What’s the bravest thing you’ve ever seen?” or “Have you ever pulled a great prank?” prompt unexpected stories that help members connect with relatives on a new level. Stories are private, shared only with designated family members, and can be saved digitally or collected into a hardcover book. Over 80,000 stories have been shared to date, even by customers over 100 years old. StoryWorth was founded in 2012 by former Google executive Nick Baum and his wife Krista to capture their own parents’ stories, and is now bringing families closer together all around the world.
