If you’re in the Dixon, IL area and want to record a message to send to a loved one who’s serving out country at home or abroad you can at Culver’s tomorrow from 11am-6pm. You can record up to a 2 minute message and all you need is the person’s email address to send them this message.
You can even re-record your message if you don’t like the message you recorded the first time! See below a video sent at our last Viditalk event.
