passingboxes aims to be the world’s most comprehensive website for dealing with death.
It will host six core services: a Memory Box Creator to collect, curate and pass on life’s most precious memories; The Vault, a secure place to store all end-of-life documents and create an updatable Will; an Obituary Maker; a community forum and a vibrant online magazine.
It’s about securing your digital legacy and passing on the things that really matter.
passingboxes began as a “red folder” given to Donna by her father when he was critically ill, and has since grown into a digital business with a mission to have 500,000 members and a vision to change the way we deal with death.
We believe passingboxes will have a positive, life-affirming impact on society. By preparing properly for our deaths we are taking care of the people we leave behind and making everything easier for them. We're passing on our love. This is an essential part of our vision.
We’ve raised £220k, launched our website in July '17, been mentioned in The Times and awarded a place on CMS Law Firm’s prestigious equIP programme which will provide us with legal advice and support for 3 years.
