With Haiti reeling from yet another quake this week, the jewelry industry takes action with immediate relief.

Jewelers of America (JA) and
Jewelers
for Children (JFC) are joining forces to raise money for both immediate and
long-term relief efforts in Haiti, according to a press release.

Members of the jewelry trade are encouraged to visit JFC’s website,
JewelersforChildren.org, to
contribute directly to the organization, which will immediately distribute the
contributions to the Haiti relief funds:

Direct Relief International

Save the Children

The American Red Cross International Response Fund.

Those who want to give should know that the JA/JFC effort will match
contributions made between now and January 25th up to a total of
$30,000.

This is a critical time for Haiti, with the country now in desperate need of
immediate aid for ongoing rescue efforts and to provide food, shelter, water and
medical services. JA and JFC urge members of the jewelry industry to join them
in reaching out to support Haiti today.
