COLORADO SPRINGS — One company, born from COVID's impact, is helping people send cards and gifts to loved ones during these times when people need to remain apart.

Gift Goat is a start-up company that allows people to send personalized greeting cards to loved ones online. The company uses robots to process your typed message and then "hand-writes" each card for you, using real ink pens.

Your friends and family will think that you wrote the card yourself! You can also include photos, and gift cards, just in case you didn't have time to pick out a gift.

"The posts on Facebook like Happy Birthday, where you can put it on the story line; That's nice but it really is nice to have a physical something from someone," explained Steve Jexen, Start-up Developer for the company. "That to us was important to continue," he said.

Gift goat was also founded by Denver Broncos Super Bowl Champion, Evan Mathias. For more information, click here.
