Jewelers for Children Announces 2019 Hope for the Holidays Program

(PRESS RELEASE) Jewelers for Children, the industry’s charity, has unveiled its 2019 Hope for the Holidays program. The program includes holiday greeting cards produced by Hallmark from the designs of children representing St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The program also includes an honor donation program, and contribution cards and inserts.

This is the third year that Hallmark has donated all the printing for the cards. The card designs feature original children’s artwork and include the Hallmark logo on back of every card and embossed on the envelope flaps.

In lieu of traditional holiday greetings, members of the jewelry industry can send holiday cards showing their support for the charity. There are also contribution recognition cards that can be purchased with a donation to JFC and sent to special contacts on everyone’s holiday list. Contribution card inserts are available as an option for use with any holiday card. This year there are three different designs to choose from, all drawn by children who were either patients at the hospital, or a sibling. JFC has supported St. Jude since 1999 with more than $ 12 million in donations that have been used to fund research projects, including a bone marrow transplant clinic.

Honor donation programs are conducted by a number of companies in the industry who send letters to their customers and suppliers asking that in lieu of holiday gifts, a donation be made in their honor to JFC. The honor donation program can be utilized by anyone in the industry to easily complete their gift giving for the season and support children in need. JFC provides suggested language for a letter and customized donation forms.

Information on purchasing holiday cards, contribution cards and inserts, and the honor donation program can be found on JFC’s website at www.jewelersforchildren.org or by calling 212-687-2949.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
