VIBHOR Putting its Best Foot Forward(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK –  VIBHOR, a manufacturer of private-label core diamond essentials, is leveraging their US retail partners to help Jaipur Foot, the largest organization in the world providing free-prothesis to people in need.

The company contributes $5 for every single order placed by their retail-channel to Jaipur Foot, contributing thousands of dollars annually towards the $70 cost of an individual prosthetic. More than 1.65m people in 29 countries have benefited from Jaipur Foot since its founding in 1975.

“Jaipur Foot is very important to VIBHOR, says company president, Peter Smith. It’s not a distant place on a map to us as our owners are from Jaipur and have seen first-hand the amazing work done by the organization through the years. To see that reach now extend to so many countries around the world is inspiring. The organization is literally changing lives one person at a time.” 

VIBHOR has no collection boxes or fliers that go out to their retail partners. The work is done quietly and with dignity. “We’ve actually got to do a better job letting our retailers know that they are really making a difference in the lives of so many people.” says Smith.

Jaipur Foot is run by D.R. Mehta, a graduate of the Sloan School of Management at MIT and a former Deputy Governor of the Indian Reserve Bank and Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Board of India. He was moved to dedicate his life to Jaipur Foot after a near-death experience saw him almost lose a leg to amputation. www.jaipurfootusa.org

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
