The stuff you buy can be the start of a great story…

Tell us yours.

Alternately, email us your story.

3 Steps to telling your story…

  1. What is your name and where do you live?My name is (first) (last) and I live in (city), (state).
  2. What is your story about?This is a story about (describe your purchase — buying a pizza? Renting a limo?)
  3. Tell us your story. Where does it start? Don’t forget to tell us what you bought, where and for how much in your tale. Be reflective. Tell us about how you and the people you know were impacted by what happened to you. How did it make you feel? Why was it unexpected? The more detail the better. And don’t forget to UPLOAD YOUR PICTURE once you’ve clicked on “Record Your Story.”
