Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) January 24, 2007
Valentine's Day is just around the corner, so how about two loving gifts for the price of one. Jewels 4 Charity, an online jewelry business, (http://www.jewels4charity.com), makes everything possible: a generous gift for charity and at the same time a gift for that special someone.
Jewelry is always wondrous. Jewels 4 Charity founder Pat Scheckner wishes diamonds, precious gems, silver and gold for each and every Valentine.
Here's how the program works: the consumer purchases a Valentine's Day gift from Jewels 4 Charity at approximately 10 to 40 percent below the "On Sale" nationally advertised price from jewelry and department stores. The kicker is the purchase: Jewels 4 Charity gives another 20 percent of purchase price to a well-known, qualified charity. The buyer chooses the charity from a list that includes The Parkinson's Disease Foundation, The National Hemophilia Foundation, Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center, The Junior League of Phoenix, Saint Timothy's Catholic Community and PALS (Pets Are Loving Support --- and that's just a few of the local and national charities that are part of the program. Imagine a gift that keeps on giving.
This is an example: The consumer orders a beautiful Valentine Necklace for, $600 (it normally retails for at least $700 nationally), and Jewels 4 Charity gives 20 percent of the purchase price, or $120 dollars, to the chosen charity. Most jewelry at Jewels 4 Charity is priced from $79 to $5,000 with most jewelry being in the $200 - $500 range. This Valentine's gift combines a sparkle, a bauble, an investment and a charitable donation all in one.
And, again, it is the brainchild of Jewels 4 Charity director Pat Scheckner, a successful businessperson who wanted to as she says, "give back some of the generosity and sharing that has helped me become successful." In the past year alone, Jewels 4 Charity has donated approximately $50,000.00 to charitable organizations. The donations come in the form of a monthly check from the funds received on behalf of the chosen charity. In addition the charities are given secured online access to track all activity generated, including sales, donation amounts and payments distributed and due.
