Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How did you come up with the name "Laurelizabrown" & how the heck do you pronounce it?
A: Laurelizabrown comes from piecing my name Lauren Elizabeth Brown together.
Laur-eliza-brown is how you pronounce it.

Q: How did you come up with the 2 week design process?
A:
We actually didn't come up with the process. Lauren at Elle & Co brilliantly came up with it. We asked her if we could use it in our business, and adapt it to our business. If you are interested in implementing this process in your business, please ask her before you do so out of respect. Thanks!

Q: How do I book a 2 week design package?
A: Check the calendar under the services page for an open slot and then e-mail: hello@laurelizabrown.com with "Booking and the dates of your time slot" in the subject line. Thanks!

Q: Why are you donating a portion of your profits to charities & non-profits?
A: We want to mix our love of design & giving together. 

Q: How do I know the charities/non-profits on your list are honest & verified?
A:
We did extensive research on each charity/non-profit on our list through the website GuideStar and Charity Navigator
These websites allow the public to see where each charity/nonprofit's money goes to through
viewing their 990 Forms. We followed this guide on what to check for when researching non-profits & what to look out for to avoid scams.

Here is GuideStar's mission:

GuideStar's Nonprofit Profiles provide you with the information you need to make smart decisions, build connections, and learn from each other to achieve your missions."

Here is Charity Navigator's Mission:
"Charity Navigator works to guide intelligent giving. By guiding intelligent giving, we aim to advance a more efficient and responsive philanthropic marketplace, in which givers and the charities they support work in tandem to overcome our nation’s and the world’s most persistent challenges.

Charity Navigator is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization under the Internal Revenue Code and does not accept any contributions from any charities we evaluate."


Q: I don't see the charity/non-profit I want to donate to, can I donate to them?
A: At this time we only donate to the non-profits/charities on the list. We will be
adding more to the list as our company grows. For now choose a charity/non-profit
that is related to your cause. We promise the donation is going to an honest & verified
charity/non-profit.
