"Always always answer the mail." When a subtle, easy to miss email titled, "Media Inquiry," popped up in the media inbox at Artifcts back in May, it nearly got skipped over. Junk email is pervasive and startup life is uniquely chaotic. But what was clear from a glance were the credentials of the journalist behind the email, veteran reporter Faiza Elmasry, and that of course of Voice of America (VOA), providing news and information in more than 40 languages to an estimated weekly audience of more than 326 million people.
As it turns out, after months of research into approaches to preserving family legacy, stories, and memories, Elmasry found that Artifcts emerged as a unique and powerful solution accessible to people worldwide to capture their histories and heritage. She wanted to learn more about the founding philosophy of the company, the founders themselves, and the means by which Artifcts helped its community members to unite the stories with the 'stuff.'
We're pleased to share with you today the Connects series video produced by VOA to celebrate the lives and legacies now so easily captured through Artifcts. Enjoy it now on VOA News.
We are grateful to Faiza Elmasry, and her colleague June Soh, Camera, Producer, and Editor, for this opportunity to bring the story of Artifcts to the VOA audience.
