 Oprah Selects Heritage Makers Storybooks as one of her All-Time Favorite Gifts

Heritage Makers storybooks appear on December 2008 O List
Provo, Utah – November 5, 2008 – Heritage Makers, the leader in personal publishing, today announced it has been chosen for Oprah’s exclusive O List of great gifts under $100 in the December 2008 edition of O, the Oprah Magazine.  Appearing on the list below the headline “Oprah’s All-Time Favorite Gifts,” Heritage Makers storybooks are noted as a “beautiful” way to “Make History.”

Heritage Makers first received attention from Oprah Winfrey when one of its independent consultants, Brenda Kruse of Waterloo, Iowa, made a storybook celebrating the life of Oprah’s beloved dog, Gracie.  Upon receiving this gift, Oprah was so touched that she personally called Brenda to thank her for the book.  A few months later, magazine editors selected Heritage Makers as a featured gift for December.
“It’s an amazing honor to be featured in O Magazine,” said Chris Lee, CEO of Heritage Makers. “This recognition is a testament to the power of our personal publishing consultants.  With thousands of consultants helping consumers turn their digital memories into story books, Heritage Makers offers a product and business opportunity that is unrivaled.  In difficult economic times for families, a work-from-home opportunity to help others tell their stories is timely.  And as Oprah shows us, Heritage Makers’ affordable products have the power to touch lives.”
