The challenge is how to preserve irreplaceable family history—decades of precious nostalgia?

Last year, even our CEO got caught in an emergency evacuation text alert. He had 30 seconds to rush in and grab the pets. When disaster strikes, from storm surges to encroaching firestorms, there is no time to gather pictures.

At first, nobody believed pictures could be digitized this fast. Now, the top comment is “why are pictures scanned free?”

We tried everything to save families’ photo history from natural disasters.

So many advisories and shared stories from people who lost everything, yet there are still trillions of snapshots at risk from a summertime of hurricanes and wildfires.
