Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 4, 2009
During these tough economic times, one of the most difficult things to do is raise funds for a charity or community event. Most people are worried about their home value, their job, and generally are not in the best mood - much less thinking about doing something for the community right now. But what if someone could raise spirits and raise money for a good cause at the same time?
Les Harrell, the owner of the Gold Exchange has created the ideal solution for this situation. He helps people host Private Gold Parties and Gold Fundraisers - parties that invite your friends and family over, and they can bring their old jewelry, gold, and platinum. Whether the jewelry is broken or worn, or even 1 earring of what used to be a pair, The Gold Exchange will buy it from them, cash on the spot. And because individuals are either privately hosting the party or as a fundraiser, the host or the cause can earn up to 20% of all purchased items.
Gold Parties and gold recycling have become very popular in the press and the media in the past months, and is not a new concept - so what makes these parties so different? Les Harrell, the owner of the Gold Exchange, is a graduate gemologist and a certified appraiser with over 20 years experience in the industry. His company regularly monitors the gold prices, and is one of the only Gold related companies that own its own refinery. These resources and experience allow The Gold Exchange to pay top dollar for gold, guaranteed. This coupled with The Gold Exchange's willingness to partner to help local charities and fundraising events, makes this the ideal way to give back... with a Midas touch.
"The fundraiser for my daughter's dance studio was fabulous! The Gold Exchange paid us $13,225. What an amazing opportunity for all of the people who participated - not only did my friends get paid for their scrap and old jewelry, but they helped us raise an astonishing amount of money, with the help of The Gold Exchange," said Julie Bayer, of Golden Colorado. "Thank you so much!"
The Gold Exchange has had a remarkable growth rate, and is now being franchised throughout the United States and Canada. New franchise locations have been opened in Southern California, Colorado Springs, Maryland, Northern California, Utah, and in British Columbia, Canada. And recently, the company celebrated its brand-new dedicated storefront in Aurora, Colorado, at 3140 South Parker Road. Pictures of the new store location are present on the company website, http://www.thegoldexchange.us.
"Imagine running a business that caters to the wants and needs of others, whether it's a quick burst of income, or supporting a worthwhile cause that you are passionate about. It's a great opportunity, and a way to deliver the Gift of Giving to your organization," said owner, Les Harrell.
