Here at ‘The Four’ – we gathered our top four fun ways you can use tech to celebrate virtually.

VidHug is an exciting, new way to send well-wishes, birthday wishes, greetings, and any other friendly messages to loved ones. To use it, you simply sign up on their website, and for $15 you can create a bank of messages from your family and friends. You set a deadline, and once that hits, VidHug will edit all of the messages into a montage to be sent to that special person.

Last week 9 & 10’s Courtney Hunter and Matthew Doyle’s were supposed to be celebrating their wedding day. We did a fun shout out to them on this show – if you missed it click here – but a couple of our amazing co-workers got them a gift that will give them another way to remember that day.

They had a facetime photo session with Frankie Photography – who is a professional photographer in Detroit.

Frankie is still doing this – and is planning some more sessions in the near future – click here for more info.

From live streaming winemakers to winemaking, Wine.com offers wine-tasting with your pals while practicing safe social distancing. This is an excellent way to support local vineyards while still connecting with your friends. Click here for more info.

To celebrate with our pet pals, the Dennos Museum is opening up its first-ever totally virtual exhibit – all about pets. The opening reception is May 6th at 1 p-m.

The museum put out the call out for digital photos of kids pets – real, imaginary, or even stuffed. All of the entries were alongside digital versions of art from the Dennos Collection. Tomorrow, everyone is invited to interact with the young artists and community on Facebook live.
