High School Theater Programs
To give or not to give? Tomorrow’s greatest actors and actresses are being born in high school theaters across the nation. Art programs in our educational system have been hurt by budget cuts recently. High schools are in dire need of any donated props or costumes, especially jewelry! How can our school’s young actresses’ play the 1920’s flapper without pearls? Send them a jewelry donation today.
For information on schools near you, you can look up your local school district online.
Jewelry can light up any person’s day. Though some people go to hospitals just for a checkup, others stay for months on end, fighting fierce battles against cancer and other chronic illnesses. Help your local hospital’s patients’ get their minds off their battles and feel glamorous with one simple jewelry donation.
Go to your local hospital’s website for more information.
Independent Film Studios
Just like high school theater programs, independent film studios are on a strict budget and could use your jewelry donation to help create the perfect scene. Who knows, you might see your watch or diamond earrings on the big screen!
