Locket Program



Purchase a Locket as a Mother's Day Gift, and Another Locket will be Sent to a Bereaved Mom


CARMEL, NY, May 1, 2017 – The greatest love of all is said to be a mother’s love for her child. No matter where life may take her children, a mother will always carry that love wherever she goes. In honor of Mother’s Day, the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation is offering an exclusive “buy one/give one” locket that's adorned with lines from the E.E. Cummings poem, “I Carry Your Heart With Me.”


This charitable buy one/give one program enables buyers to purchase a locket as a gift for Mother’s Day, knowing that another locket will be sent to a mother somewhere in the U.S. who lost her child to cancer. The buyer’s recipient will receive a gorgeous locket as their gift, along with a beautiful note about the mother who will receive the “give one” locket.  At the same time, the bereaved parent will receive the beautiful heart-shaped locket, bearing a photo of her child already inside, accompanied by a copy of the full poem “I Carry Your Heart” by E. E. Cummings. The first line from that poem is also engraved in the heart-shaped locket, which is available in both silver and gold.


Seven children die of cancer every single day in the US alone. PRET*TY store founder, Cindy Campbell, knows this all too well. Since losing her son, Ty, this locket has adorned almost every outfit she wears so she can feel that she "carries his heart" with her wherever she goes.


“I hope this simple gesture will provide comfort to many more bereaved moms like me who have lost children to cancer. I know for me, personally, it is so important to know that my son is remembered. I believe this program will show these moms that their child is being honored by strangers across the country,” said Campbell. “Small gestures such as this provide comfort in knowing our child is gone but not forgotten.”


Buy one/give one lockets can be purchased at prettystore.org, or donors can purchase only the locket for a bereaved mom by making a $40 locket donation at prettystore.org, as well.  


Some program beneficiairies are selected at random via social media and word of mouth, however donors can also request a specific family to honor. Bereaved moms of childhood cancer are also invited to request a locket via the online form, free-of-charge. As long a mailing address is provided, the locket request can be fulfilled to any bereaved mom that has not already been a program recipient.
