SHIPPING GUIDE 

 

  

To our dearest Supporters

Since the beginning of the pandemic, nationwide shipping delays and negligent handlings by parcel services have been detrimental to all businesses and especially small businesses. We are doing our very best to consider other options while keeping into consideration the cost of our goods to you the customer, and we ask that you extend the same consideration to us.  Below are the shipping schedules and instructions in the event that your package is delayed. We only have so much control over your package once it has left our facility. We ask for your patience during this time. We really appreciate all of your love and support as it’s not only for us, but for the children we support as well.

 Peace and Love,

Krystal and Chaka

Due to government defunding and staffing shortages, USPS has been hit hard by the pandemic, disrupting the shipping process nationwide. We do our best on our end to ensure your items are packaged correctly, and your shipping information is just as it has been received so that you receive your package seamlessly, however there are some instances where matters are out of our control and we do need your patience as we navigate through it.

USPS will currently only accept claim cases between the 2 week and 60 day window from the date your item shipped.  With that said, we do require at least a 2 week grace period from the date your package has shipped to allow it time to deliver to you before we can issue a refund or resend.  Once the grace period has been honored, we will be able to open a case on your behalf.

PLEASE NOTE THE FILEABLE CASES:

Damaged or Opened Packages

  -(you will be asked to provide a photo within 24 hours of receipt of package as per tracking)

Delays after 2 weeks and before 90 days from label created/shipped date

  -(will show as pending in transit, label created, or awaiting shipment)

Delivered to Wrong Address

  -(You will be asked to confirm the address you provided when you ordered.  If you provided an incorrect address, we are unable to issue a refund or resend.)
