We want you to Tell Your Story (FAQ)
1) What should my story be?
The story that you donate is your personal creation and told from your own perspective. You, the storyteller, are sharing a memory that is linked to the object that you donate. Express any emotion that you wish. The story can be a single sentence or longer, but we recommend that it be less than one page.
The title can be simply the name of the object that you donate with the story, or something else you choose to reflect your story.
To protect their privacy, the full name or personal information of others cannot be included in your story. Stories cannot be morally offensive or discriminatory.
2) What kind of objects do you accept as donations?
There are few restrictions on objects that we accept. Some donations are irreplaceable and full of sentimental value. Others are ordinary everyday items. It is a symbol of your story and the choice is completely up to you. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us and we will be happy to discuss them with you.
