About Keeper:

Keeper is a social online memorial platform dedicated to memorializing the lives of the departed. Keeper Founder and CEO, Mandy Benoualid, realized at a young age that cemeteries and headstones don’t adequately capture and preserve lives; there’s much more to a person than date of birth, date of death, and the “dash” in between. Keeper’s mission is to give families the tools to fill in your loved one’s “dash” with memories, tributes, photos and more. You now have the ability to become the Keeper of your loved one’s legacy and preserve and share your entire family history with future generations. Keeper can help you preserve the stories that matter most to you. Learn how to keep memories alive with Keeper here:
