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.
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.
