The Retirement Book

Invite colleagues to contribute to a keepsake retirement book.
✤ It's free to start, no card required ✤

Retirement is an opportunity to celebrate the impact of their life’s work — the challenges they overcame, the people they mentored, and the sacrifices they made. Honor their contributions and accomplishments with the best sendoff gift — an outpouring of gratitude and well wishes from friends and colleagues.
