CaringBridge(R) Enhances Web Service by Adding Printable CaringBook Option

New Feature Allows Users to Create a Book on CaringBridge Sites Documenting

Their Journey Through Treatment or Recovery

EAGAN, Minn., July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- CaringBridge, a nonprofit Web service that connects families and friends when someone is facing a serious medical condition, treatment or recovery, now provides users with the ability to preserve their personal Web site content in a professionally-printed book format. Journal entries, guestbook messages, tributes, photos and a dedication can be captured in a full-color "CaringBook" for authors who wish to keep a remembrance of their journey after their CaringBridge Web site is no longer a necessity for day-to-day communication.

CaringBridge is able to offer this new feature through a partnership with SharedBook, a custom publishing platform provider. Using SharedBook's browser- based publishing platform, content automatically flows from any CaringBridge Web site into a professional book that can be previewed, personalized and ordered online.

Once a CaringBook is complete, CaringBridge members can share the book with their friends and family electronically. Those invited to view the book can also purchase a copy in its entirety.

"The CaringBridge experience and connection is very powerful," said CaringBridge founder Sona Mehring. "Many times friends and family want to have an ongoing remembrance of that connection. By offering this feature of creating a timeless book of a CaringBridge experience, that is possible."

CaringBridge is the largest charitable nonprofit Web site in the world, according to Nielsen//NetRatings' traffic rankings. Nearly 150,000 Web sites have been created, generating more than half a billion visits and 20 million messages of hope and encouragement. The free service is funded mainly by individual donations.

"CaringBridge is a tremendous resource for patients and their families," said Caroline Vanderlip, chief executive officer, SharedBook Inc. "We are delighted that SharedBook's platform can provide an easy way for CaringBridge members to chronicle their journeys in book format."
