Many people you know feel isolated, forgotten, or alone.
Despite the incredible power of our smart phones, 90% of people report having felt socially isolated or lonely in the last year (according to a recent LoveBomb study).
This is not only impacting the happiness of our friends, family, colleagues, and selves, but according to Dr. Vivek Murthy - the 19th Surgeon General of the United States, is also effecting our short and long term physical health and emotional well-being.
Since staying connected can be tough, and it's still easy to fall out of touch with people we care about, we created a tool that makes it easier than ever to manage your relationships, celebrate your favorite people, and experience the joy and vitality of consistent (meaningful) connection.
How will we do it? By dropping LoveBombs.

TLDR: Mark Shapiro has sent over 10,000 personalized appreciation videos to those he cares about, gave the TEDx talk on human connection in the digital age, and is the founder of the LoveBomb app (coming Summer 2020).
“After my dad passed away 3 years ago, I realized I could show more appreciation for the people in my life, and started a daily ritual of sending personalized video messages to each of my 3,000 Facebook friends on their birthdays.
While I guessed it would be a nice gift to give people, be fun to do, and help me keep in touch with the people I have chosen "to be connected with" on social media, little did I know that sending appreciation videos would totally elevate my life, relationships, and inspire others to love up their favorite people digitally too.
You see, giving gratitude and spreading kindness is proven to stimulate positive emotions, improve our health, help build strong relationships, and is contagious, so giving our kind attention to the people we care about, even if it's just a 30 second appreciation video or a 'thinking of you' text, is often a bigger gift than we even realize.
10,000 videos, and a TEDx talk later, I've learned that the antidote to loneliness is connection, and the key to connection is through kindness. I've discovered there is an endless amount of love to go around, and so much more quality connection available to all of us.
Enter in the LoveBomb: Social Assistant - which makes keeping in touch and sending meaningful messages - fun, quick, and easier than ever.

I welcome you in joining me in helping make that a reality for the future of humanity, and all of us - by dropping daily LoveBombs on the people you care about."
