I got an email the other day from the the director of Jewelers for Children. He told me that we had raised over $16,000 in donations for their organization from our watch battery donation project. Since 2004, we have not charged for watch batteries. In lieu of payment, we ask for a donation for Jewelers for Children.
Since 1999, they have distributed more than $40 million to charities that benefit children. In that time, they helped grant 1,300 wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America, assisted 5,500 children in foster care through the CASA Association, and helped more than 150,000 women in Africa deliver HIV-free babies through the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. More than 1,000 children have received care at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital because of their efforts.
This offer has been well received by our customers who like to know that their donations go to such great causes! On behalf of Krombholz Jewelers, I would like to thank our generous customers!
