Memorable 50th birthday gift gives voice to a winning basketball team

October 11, 2009


When Philip Hall, a varsity basketball coach, bid farewell to his seniors at his team’s annual award celebration, it also happened to be his 50th birthday.  On that eventful day, he received a meaningful 50th birthday present that was far more memorable than any basketball plaque his players or fellow coaches could ever give him. He received a keepsake CD filled with the voices of his colleagues, his graduating players, and their parents, expressing their thanks and warm wishes.  The recordings ranged from funny to sentimental, and showed him what he had meant to his team.

“I go out there and urge my players to make me proud every day. I’ve always focused on the players, and when they gave me this gift it demonstrated how much my philosophy meant to them personally”.

The players and their parents wanted to give the coach a surprise present that was very personal.  However, with hectic schedules, the players and their parents knew that the group gift would have to be simple for everyone to contribute to.

The gift the coach received is called LifeOnRecord.

Team mom, Stacy Burson, got the idea when her husband gave her a LifeOnRecord CD as a memorable birthday gift.

The process is simple: family and friends call a toll-free number and are directed to record a favorite story, memory or wish. There’s no limit on the number of callers that can phone-in or on the total number of recordings you receive. You can download the recordings for free to your computer using iTunes so that you can make your own CD, or LifeOnRecord can create a keepsake CD with a personalized label and metal case. An unlimited plan with free download capability into iTunes costs $49.99, or an unlimited plan with a keepsake CD costs $74.98.

It is a unique, affordable service that allows you to create a highly personal gift with ease.

“My players mean the world to me, and this is the perfect way for me to remember them and their impact after my coaching days are over.  The mom who organized and put this together is my hero”.

If you’d like to be a hero to your loved one, you can purchase LifeOnRecord and give them a creative birthday .
