Frequently Asked Questions
Why did Heritage Makers create the Storybook in Every Home Charity?
Heritage Makers believes that everyone should benefit from the heritage-enriching potential of a personalized storybook. Because some lack financial or technical resources, HM has teamed up with its Consultant network and client base to provide storybooks for individuals who might otherwise not be able to receive them.
Who can get involved?
Anyone can nominate a deserving individual or family for participation in this program or make a donation to help with publishing and shipping costs. Additional opportunities for service include:
Tucked In -- Volunteer to work with a homeless shelter in your area (individually or as part of a group) to create a Tucked In storybook in Studio.
If you are a photographer, you can volunteer to help with the photo content. Go to the Tucked In page for more details.
NILMDTS -- Volunteer to work with a family that has experienced the loss of an infant to create a lasting tribute to their loved one. You will be notified when someone in your area is in need of this service. If you are a Heritage Makers Consultant you can volunteer here.
How can I donate cash?

How does the nomination process work?
Tucked In - If you are aware of a family in need, go to Nomination Form and provide the information requested. You should receive a response within 5 business days. If approved (and if you will be creating the storybook yourself in Studio) you will be given 30 days to complete the project. Premier access will be authorized, if needed. When you are ready to publish, please complete the Tucked In Coupon Request Form and a coupon for publishing the book will be placed in your account. These coupons have a 30-day expiration -- all projects must be published before the expiration date.
NILMDTS - If you know a family facing early infant loss, contact them and direct them to the Find a Photographer web page on the NILMDTS site so they can contact an affiliated photographer in their local area.
