Hello!

All you need to do to get started is edit the configuration.yml file with your information and
run:

emergent update generator my_generator!

Strategy:

- Create list of all special events
- Search through eCards and attach one to each birthday
- Write a message for everyone at the beginning of the year
- The day before their birthday, it will remind you of your settings
- Check settings, make message a little more personal and up to date, save
- Sends message!
