JA's Charity Challenge

Jewelers of America has issued a challenge to members to raise $250,000 for the Jewelers Charity Fund in a minimum one-week promotion any week in April. Members will be asked to donate proceeds or a portion of proceeds from watch battery replacements. They may invite consumers to make a contribution via a JCF canister in jewelry stores. Retailers also may perform minor services such as watchband sizing or jewelry cleaning for free and ask their customers to make a donation via the canister.

The charity raises money for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and Glaser Pediatric Research Network and the Make a Wish Foundation. For more information or if you need new JCF canisters, contact JA at (800) 223-0673 or (646) 658-0246, fax (646) 658-0256, info@jewelofam.org, www.jewelers.org.
