Storybook Charities--and How to Donate

Heritage Makers believes--correctly--that everyone has a story.  Since publishing the {first personal storybook} well over a decade ago, Heritage Makers has recognized not only the need for a storybook in every home but the needs of two extra special groups of people.


Both of the programs I'll be telling you about today are managed by {My Story Matters.  Please visit their website for more information.

They provide sweet Heritage Makers (heirloom-quality) storybooks as needed keepsakes for families who face early infant loss.  These books are a treasured memory.



This cause is very personal to me.  You can read about how early infant loss has touched my family here:  {Healing From Grief through Family Stories}.  Unfortunately, many families lose little ones, so you may know one.  To nominate a family to receive a free book through this charitable program, or to donate to it, find more information at {this link}.

My Story Matters also provides personalized Heritage Makers storybooks for children living in homeless shelters.  In some cases, these books are the only photos the children have of themselves, and these storybooks raise self-esteem while providing positive reinforcement and hope.



To nominate a child to receive a free book through this charitable program, or to donate to it, find more information at {this link}.

You may donate unexpired Heritage Makes publishing points, cash, or your own time to create books for both of these causes.
