Connecting People with Their Pictures After the Tornado

I got this note from a fellow consultant on my team and wanted to share...

"I also wanted to share a remarkable story I heard from a contact I met at the Time Out For Women in Atlanta in October.  She called me out of the blue last week and I have been sharing her story every since. Her story truly touched my heart and I want to share it with EVERYONE.

My contact lives in Alabama and she was only 20 minutes from her dear friends who lost EVERYTHING in the tornadoes and 60 min away from the HUGE devastation we are all seeing and hearing about on the news. She said her friends 20 min away jumped in their car and outran the tornado, only to come back to there home completely gone. Everything including their photos, photo books, etc. She said people are finding photos 150 miles from their owners and reconnecting them on FACEBOOK. This is what pushed her over the edge to start Heritage Makers. She said she knew, if she used Heritage Makers she would never have to worry about having to find her babies photos in the ditches or woods of Alabama (which you would never recover them if they were in there). With Heritage Makers she would just have to go in, publish another book, and that would be that. All her books, projects and photos would be preserved for a lifetime!!!

I had tears in my eyes hearing this story. I told her that is why I am Heritage Makers consultant. I wanted to help others to not have to worry about their story not being told or their photos lost. I offered to bring my scanner to Alabama and help others get their pictures preserved. I'm going to remain in contact with her and see what else we might be able to do as a family.

So I just wanted to share this story with you. I thought it might make a difference in your life too and maybe you might decide today is the BEST time to start telling your story and preserve your photos. We really don't know what tomorrow will bring!"

~ I live outside of the Atlanta area and have access to a high speed scanner (30 pic per minute) and can help anyone that was affected, by scanning in their remaining pictures.
~ We are looking for consultants to help us spread the word about our mission to preserving photos and memories!  If you would like to help us, please call me: 404.729.0388 or send me an email to Betty@MyStoryBookLady.com
