CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. – Legacybox, an innovative and secure, mail-in solution for digitizing invaluable home movies and photos, announced recently that it is donating $100,000 in digitizing kits to families in Southern California to save memories otherwise lost to natural disaster threats.

As part of the company’s natural disaster preparedness efforts, Legacybox will be donating 200 Legacybox kits with 20 items included to residents in at-risk wildfire communities to help preserve their family history, experiences and legacies. Legacybox has pioneered an industry standard for digitizing millions of VHS tapes, camcorder tapes, aging film reels, photos and slides, combining experiences of the past with the technology of today to make it easy and safe to preserve and share recorded moments for generations to come.

“When disaster strikes, loosing irreplaceable, cherished possessions and memories should be the last thing on family’s minds as they prepare for the uncertainty of natural disasters,” Adam Boeselager, founder of Legacybox, said. “Memories matter but are often trapped in our attics or storage closets and at risk of being lost forever. We want families to rest assure that those memories are insured by us and available on digital formats that are safe against natural disaster threats and for future generations.”

Southern California residents can register for a Legacybox digitizing kit online by visiting www.Legacybox.com/disaster-relief. Their Legacybox kit will be mailed to their doorstep immediately, to be packed with invaluable recorded moments and labeled with pioneered safety barcodes, so they can follow each item during the professional-grade digitizing process online. Residents will receive an email with a link to download digital version of their original media within 2-4 weeks. Legacybox digitizing kits will be donated on a first come first serve basis.

For those who are already impacted, if homeowners can access their non-digital media safely, Legacybox will hold this content securely at its facilities until the risk of return has passed – or alternatively work closely with individuals on identifying another convenient address for returns.

Interested families can visit www.Legacybox.com for more information on services provided or for immediate help, speak to a customer service team member at (800) 656-6032.

As the largest digitizing company in the world, Legacybox has been trusted by museums, universities, governments and over 600,000 families across America to convert their priceless aging tapes, film and pictures into digital keepsakes that are ready to watch, share and enjoy on-demand.
