Why We Do What We Do
I’ve been putting a lot of energy into Ultimo Gifts for a little over a year, which has not been easy to do in a relatively new area and new home for my wife and I, a now 16 month old son running around, and a challenging but rewarding job to stay on top of. But it has been a labor of love and a pursuit I knew I needed to see through and take a chance on.
As I’ll cover in other blog posts, this business is many things:
a dedication to the wonderful man my dad was
a way for me to give back to very worthy causes that he cared about, and
a way to connect with others and hopefully bring some peace of mind along the way
But at the end of the day, Ultimo Gifts is here to provide an avenue for people to give their loved ones a reminder of their love even after they have passed. So, when I saw the tweet below that had gone viral back in November of last year, it kicked me into high-gear to get the business off the ground.
This is exactly the mission of Ultimo Gifts! This father made sure he set up a way to keep in touch with his daughter even after he passed away. This girl shared his incredible thoughtfulness with the world and it exploded. That tells me there are lots of other people out there who want to do what this amazing father did.
I’m nervous about opening the doors because of how much time I and so many other amazingly generous people who gave their time and energy put in, the very personal driving reason behind the business, and most importantly, I want to make my dad proud. But the excitement is overwhelming and I’m happy to say “Welcome to Ultimo Gifts”!
