Text Me 


What stories and secrets are buried in your mobile?

What stories lie in your phone memory? Perhaps the last message you received from a relative who passed away, the first text your child sent you, a text that broke your heart, a text that fixed it, a text that bought you good news or bad...or simply a message you don't want to forget. Share a story you want to see grow, or one you want to let go...    will they be TEXT MESSAGE RIP or TEXT MESSAGE VIP?

Success! Message received.
