Hallmark Holiday Cards That Help Children in Need
Written by Selina Hallam
It's never too early to start shopping for Christmas cards and with the new range of Hallmark holiday cards from the charity Jewelers for Children, you can show your support for children in need and help raise much-needed funds at the same time.
As reported on Instore Mag, Jewelers for Children has just unveiled its 2019 Hope for the Holidays program, including greeting cards produced and sponsored by Hallmark and featuring designs from children whose wishes were granted by Make-A-Wish America and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, as well as a sibling of one of the patients. The cards cost just a dollar each, which is fully deductible as a charitable contribution, and all feature the Hallmark logo on the reverse, the recognizable gold crown stickers and the embossed logo on the envelope.
For 2019, there are three different designs to choose from, though all of them are so adorable that you may want to order the set, and they are all blank inside so you can add your own message.
Businesses that purchase them to send to customers can have a custom message added inside and can even have their logo added to the inside for $25 per design. While many members of the jewelry industry have done this for years, these lovely cards are suitable for any business or individual to purchase, to make a difference and spread awareness.
You can order your cards here by December 14th, 2019 in order to ensure you receive them before Christmas.
Who are Jewelers for Children?
In 1999, the US jewelry industry founded Jewelers for Children in order to help children affected by illness, neglect or abuse. Through their charity partners of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Make-A-Wish America and International, the National CASA Association, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and the Santa-America Fund, Jewelers for Children has donated nearly $57 million dollars to programs that benefit children in need.
So far, thanks to support from the jewelry industry, nearly 2000 children in the US and over 12000 in India have been granted wishes and more than 53,000 children in the foster care system have been helped in some way, plus hundreds of children have been treated for deadly cancers since Jewelers for Children has provided a stem cell transplant laboratory, a bone marrow transplant unit and a chair in Genes and Genetic therapy. The charity also helps to support other organizations, such as donating money to the American Red Cross for relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and to Save the Children for relief efforts in Japan after the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami of 2010.
The charity's success is often due to the generosity of those in the jewelry industry, including manufacturing companies, trade organizations, retail stores, individual jewelry professionals and jewelry consumers and part of that is with people making a one-off or monthly donation. If you'd like to donate to Jewelers for Children, you can do so here.
Additionally, there are some lovely all-occasion note cards available to buy, which were designed by children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and are also sponsored and printed by Hallmark, with a minimum order quantity of 10.
