Unique 65th birthday gift gives voice to a winning soccer team

October 14, 2009


When varsity soccer coach Ronnie Walker bid farewell to his seniors at his team’s end of year award celebration, it also happened to be his 65th birthday. On that memorable day, he received a surprise 65th birthday group gift that was far more meaningful than any soccer trophy 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 demonstrated to him what he had meant to the Fighting Tigers.

“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 I saw how much my philosophy meant to them personally”.

The players and their parents wanted to give the coach a personalized 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 Keepsake CD the coach received is called LifeOnRecord.

Team mom, Samantha King, got the idea when her husband gave her a LifeOnRecord CD as a unique birthday gift.

The process is simple: friends and family call a toll-free number and are directed to record a favorite memory, story or wish. There’s no limit on the number of callers that can phone-in or on the total number of recordings you receive. The recordings can be downloaded for free using iTunes so that you can make your own compact disc, 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.

“These young men mean a lot 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 unique birthday.
