The recipient can access their box anytime by going to their unique link, which we will email to them (see timeline below). But, you don't need to wait on this email because the unique link is also printed two places in the physical box:
- On an introductory card with the list of all contributors (in the bottom-left corner).
- On the last card in the deck.
TIMELINE: RECIPIENT ACCESS & THANK YOU
If you entered the recipient's email in setup when you originally set up the AwesomeBox, then here's what will happen:
- The recipient won't receive any communication from us before they get their AwesomeBox (we don't want to bust the surprise!)
- Eight days after the shipment is receive received, we will email the host asking if the AwesomeBox has been given to the recipient. If the box hasn't yet been given, click the link in the email to stop us from emailing the recipient. You will be taken to a calendar, and you can tell us the date you plan to give the AwesomeBox. We will email the recipient the next day.
- Two weeks after delivery, if the host hasn't told us to NOT email the recipient, we assume that the box has safely reached the recipient.
- The email that we send the recipient will:
- Give them their own link to access the digital version of their AwesomeBox.
- Give them a link to send a "thank you" message in one fell swoop to all participants. Each participant will get a digital copy of their card in the recipient's thank-you email.
HOST THANK YOU
Hosts wrangle a lot of people to participate, so they will also have the ability to thank everyone in a message, which participants like a lot. After the AwesomeBox is delivered, we will send hosts an email — subject line "[RecipientFirstName]'s AwesomeBox is Done!" — with button/link to thank everyone for conspiring to make such a great gift together.
CAN I GET THE RECIPIENT LINK IMMEDIATELY?
During the COVID-19 era, lots of people make a box that is digitally delivered on the occasion and the physical box arrive at a later date. The box is a lifetime keepsake after all, and recipients have said it's nice to receive the gift in waves — digital, then physical. If you chose to do this, then you can choose a delivery date that makes the deadline a day before the birthday, retirement, wedding, etc.
To get the link right away, contact us right after the deadline passes and we'll give it to you. This URL doesn't get created until the AwesomeBox is completed and ordered.
