Why we started Stamps

Stamps update voorpagina

How are you doing?

The simple question, "How are you?" is always well-intentioned. If you're going through a difficult time due to illness or loss, it can be burdensome to repeatedly tell the same story or to copy and paste it into different WhatsApp messages. This takes time and energy.
In the Stamps app, you can express how you're feeling in your own way and at your own pace. You can invite interested parties to follow your updates in Stamps.

Have an overview

By sharing your experiences in Stamps, you create an overview about your journey, including all highs and lows, for yourself. You can easily read how you experienced earlier treatments, and the aftermath of them. Pictures as well as reactions on your updates by friends, bring back valuable memories. This also helps in making it feel like the entire journey was a big blur.

Accessible for your dear ones

For loved ones, it's also nice if they regularly read how you're doing via Stamps. Without them having to ask. Because asking can be quite difficult. 
For your network as well, it's easy for them to read and support wherever they are and whenever it suits them. Showing empathy can also be done without words, by simply placing a heart or other emoticon.
When you share your story in Stamps, it will not disappear between other WhatsApp’s, holiday pictures, mails or advertisements.  

The power of a stamp

How lovely is it to receive a postcard with an actual stamp when you are going through a difficult journey. It is a sign of compassion, from somebody who cares about you. For the team of Stamps, this symbolizes the support we want to offer you with our app. You can easily send a postcard, some flowers or a small present to somebody who is keeping you up to date via Stamps.

Writing for someone else

Sometimes you just don't have the energy, time, or simply the desire to write about how you're doing. And not everyone is able to write. For example, in the case of brain injury or dementia. Through the settings button, you can grant someone who follows you in Stamps the rights to write on your behalf.

You can also give multiple people the rights to write for you. Do you want to share a journey for your grandma, or brother or sister? You can make one account and keep everybody updated together!

And to get a big misunderstanding out of the way, you do not need writing experience to share your story in Stamps.
