Jewelers for Children Announces 2016 Hope for the Holidays ProgramSeptember 06, 17
(IDEX Online) – Industry charity Jewelers for Children has unveiled its 2016 Hope for the Holidays program.
The program includes holiday greeting cards produced by Hallmark from the designs of children representing Make-A-Wish® America. The program also includes an honor donation program, and contribution cards and inserts.
“It is such a natural for Hallmark to be providing the holiday cards for Jewelers for Children, said Katy Briggs, Jewelry Category Manager for Hallmark Global Brand Licensing and a JFC board member. "Holiday cards have always been at the heart of our core business and it’s an honor for us to sponsor the jewelry industry’s charity.”
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 had a wish granted. JFC has supported Make-A-Wish® America since 1999 with more than $ 11 million in donations and has helped to grant over 1,800 wishes, the JFC said.
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.
