Hockey coach receives creative gift of players’ voices for 65th birthday

October 12, 2009


When varsity hockey coach Christopher Morris bid farewell to his seniors at his team’s annual award ceremony, it also happened to be his 65th birthday. On that eventful day, he received a creative 65th birthday keepsake that was far more meaningful than any hockey 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 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 team, 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 thoughtful present that was very personal. However, with frantic schedules, the players and their parents knew that the group gift would have to be easy for everyone to contribute to.

The gift the coach received is called LifeOnRecord.

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

The process is simple: friends and family 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. 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.

“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 unique birthday gift.
