New York--Jewelers for Children has launched this year’s Hope for the Holidays program, a fundraising effort that includes holiday greeting cards, an honor donation program, and contribution cards and inserts created using children’s artwork.

This is one of the three child-designed cards that are part of Jewelers for Children’s holiday campaign this year.This year’s program includes three different holiday card designs drawn by children from Make-A-Wish America and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

There also are contribution recognition cards that can be purchased with a donation to JFC and sent to contacts on holiday lists. Contribution card inserts also are available as an option for use within the holiday cards.

The honor donation programs, meanwhile, are conducted by a companies in the industry that send letters to their customers and suppliers asking that a donation be made in their name to JFC in lieu of holiday gifts.

It can be used by anyone in the industry, and JFC even provides suggested language for the letter and customized donation forms.
