Jewelers For Children Fundraising Day Returns
The annual event will be held Sept. 23.
The nonprofit, dedicated to helping children affected by illness, abuse, or neglect, hosts the fundraising day each year to celebrate its successes and unite retail jewelers to raise awareness and funds for its charitable causes.
Across the country, retailers hold promotions in their stores to benefit JFC charity partners including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Make-A-Wish America, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the National CASA/GAL Association, which recently awarded JFC for its positive impact.
JFC also supports Make-A-Wish International and the Organization for Autism Research.
Since its inception in 1999, JFC has donated more than $61 million through its partners.
Suppliers, retailers, and consumers are all welcome to participate in JFC Day. Monetary contributions are not required.
Participants can sign up online and access a participation guide with resources on how to support the charity, as well as a link to a video news release about JFC Day that can be shared on social media, as well as with local media markets.
The video, created in partnership with Elias World Media, highlights the positive impact the jewelry industry has had on children’s lives and how consumers can contribute when shopping on JFC Day.
The charity also offers retailers the option to personalize the video by adding their logo.
"We are thrilled to invite all jewelers to join us in celebrating Jewelers for Children Day on Sept. 23," said JFC Executive Director David Rocha.
"This event provides a powerful platform for the jewelry industry to come together and make a lasting difference in the lives of children in need. By leveraging the personalized video news release, retailers can share their commitment to philanthropy and inspire their communities to get involved."
