Mr. Pramod Kumar Agrawal said, “Jewelers for Hope” is a platform where gem & jewelry industry comes together to contribute for a common cause. As an industry, we have always contributed generously for the upliftment of the underprivileged. The gem & jewelry industry has been involved in large-scale philanthropic initiatives particularly in the field of primary education, health & hygiene since a long time. This year, we have chosen to support niche areas such as the Indian army welfare, tribal welfare, affordable healthcare and maternal care to the underprivileged. I thank all contributors for coming forward and supporting the Jewelers for Hope initiative.

A fund of Rs 1 Crore was raised from Jewelers for Hope Charity Dinner event and it was evenly distributed to Army Welfare, Tribal Integrated Development & Education Trust (TIDE) and Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care (SRLC) respectively.

Mr. Paul Rowley said, “Diamond does changes lives. Diamond is truly forever, and it reflects love. At De Beers we have always believed in helping in building the society. India is no different from the African nations, where there is abundance of talent and skillsets. Through this initiative we would like to make the society a better place to live.”

Mr. Colin Shah said, “The selection of the three NGOs Army Welfare, Tribal Integrated Development & Education Trust (TIDE) and Shrimad Rajchandra Love & Care (SRLC), was a unanimous choice by the GJEPC members. All the three NGOs have done outstanding work for the needy and underprivileged.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
