HOW WE GOT OUR START
Our story begins in 1967 in Cleveland, Ohio, as an engrave-while-you-wait shop called “Can Do,” which paved the way for the Things Remembered brand known and loved today. Our business model is simple: The customer always comes first, offer only the highest quality products, and of course, bring a healthy dose of good-old-fashioned Cleveland know-how to everything we do. These values have allowed Things Remembered to grow into North America’s leading, and most successful, retailer of personalized gifts. We take pride in our Midwest roots and the opportunity we have had to grow, connect and play a part in the communities and lives of people across the United States. While looking back on our story is always fun, we’re excited for our next chapters and all the beautiful, one-of-a-kind gifts to come.
OUR COMMITMENT TO OUR COMMUNITIES
Celebrating all parts of life and those deep connections we make along the way is at the core of Things Remembered. That’s why our mission extends to taking care of the vibrant communities we are a part of. Things Remembered supports the American Cancer Association’s Relay For Life, Harvest for Hunger, the March of Dimes, the United Way, Domestic Violence Center, Fresh Air Camp, Rebuilding Together, the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure (Breast Cancer Foundation, Northeast Ohio), and local Pride events.
OUR SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE MAKE-A-WISH
Our partnership with Make-A-Wish began in 1997 with one child’s simple wish. Elysia, while facing a life-threatening disease, wished to give her friends and family customized gifts to remember her and let them know how special they were to her. What sprang from Elysia’s initial wish has grown into an annual program that has raised more than $7.4 million and granting more than 950 wishes. To honor Elysia’s memory, we continue to donate a portion of the proceeds of all Make-A-Wish gift sales to Make-A-Wish, which grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
In 2018 we proudly celebrated 20 years officially partnering with Make-A-Wish. We extend our sincerest appreciation to the thousands of customers who have purchased our beautiful Make-A-Wish items over the past years, or made a cash donation, to help make the contributions possible—and children’s wishes come true.
