A Gift of Love for Children in Need

Sales of Blitz Jewelry Cleaner by Samuels Jewelers directly benefits children who have been affected by illness, abuse or neglect

With the 2012 holiday season fast approaching, we happily anticipate joyous times with friends and family. We must also remember the children who must face life altering difficulties such as illness or abuse when they should be sitting in front of a warm fire opening Christmas gifts. It is because of this sobering fact that Blitz would like to recognize one of our customers, Samuels Jewelers of Austin, Texas for their annual donations to Jewelers for Children through the sale of Blitz Jewelry Cleaning Products. Jewelers for Children, founded in 1999 has donated over more than $40 million to assistance programs dedicated to serving children affected by illness, abuse and neglect. These reputable organizations that receive JFC donations include St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America, which tirelessly provide for the needs of children year round. According to http://www.jewelersforchildren.org/about.htm, in 2011, “nearly 2,100 companies have stepped up to become part of the industry’s charity…This nationwide success is due to the continuing generosity of jewelry trade organizations, jewelry and watch manufacturing companies, jewelry retail stores, individual jewelry professionals, and jewelry consumers” (JFC Website). Samuels Jewelers of Austin, Texas is a proud participant in Jewelers for Children and has found an amazing way to donate. Every year Blitz produces a customized version of our Jewelry Care Kit (includes a Gem & Jewelry Cleaner jar & concentrate, basket & brush, Jewelry Care Polishing Cloth, and a lint-free microfiber) decked out in bright yellow stripes and personalized messages thanking customers for supporting their foundations. Samuels Jewelers donates all proceeds from this product to help children in need. Samuels Jewelers has gone as far as to offer teddy bears as an add on sale to normal jewelry purchases (proceeds benefit JFC), donation jars by the register, donation add-on options at checkout, and even encourages employees to make monthly donations to JFC from their paychecks. http://www.jewelersforchildren.org/samuels-story.htm Samuels Jewelers has 132 store locations and includes Samuels Diamonds, Schubach Jewelers, Rogers Jewelers, and Andrews Jewelers. Be sure to check out their Brilliant Sale from November 10th – 25th where you can get extra savings on the entire store!
