Frequently Asked Questions

Why are we not offering FREE care packages to everyone?

After sending over 800 care packages as free gifts to anyone that asked, we were overwhelmed with requests. Donations to our cause were not keeping up with the demand for our care packages. We made the decision to provide a care package at a very reasonable price. We will continue to send care packages as gifts through our Ellie’s Way Giveaways, but cannot have an open request system. Please see our other Grief Gifts (Ellie’s Way Memorial Necklace, Grief Support Package, and FREE e-Care Package).

Does the picture need to be a specific size?

No. We will resize and crop the photos to fit for you. It looks better if you provide a high resolution photo.

Can I pick charms to put in the necklace?

We include (4) charms — “In Memory of”, “Daughter” (or other relationship), “Love”, and “Hope” charms. You can add your own charms to the necklace.

What does the necklace consist of?

You will receive a (4) charms, a 2-sided disc with a custom photo on one side and name on the other, chain, and TWIST Stainless Steel Silver CZ Big Round Locket. Shipping within the U.S. is included.

How long will it take to receive the package?

We try to ship as soon as possible, but it could take up to three weeks. The shipping time is dependent on number of packages to be shipped and our volunteer’s schedules.

How to open the necklace?

The necklaces are “twist-top.” Just rotate the top in reverse direction from the bottom part and it will unscrew. This will allow you access to add charms. Periodically check to make sure it is tight.
