              "first_name" => $first_name,
              "last_name" => $last_name,  
              "email" => $email);

        $json_data = json_encode($data);   
 
    // set URL and other appropriate options
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "https://api.toky.co/v1/contacts/");
    curl_setopt( $ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
    curl_setopt( $ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "POST");
    curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $json_data);
    
    $curl_response = curl_exec($ch); // Send request
