We're approaching the end of the year and that brings with it what we spend all year waiting for – the holiday season! In the entire year, this is the time when we truly imbibe the spirit of gifts and giving, of sharing what we have with others. And in keeping with this cherished spirit, CJ Charles Jewelers is proud to announce that we will be doing our part in giving as well, by donating a percentage of our holiday sales to the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center.
What is the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center?
The UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Institutes, and one of only 41 in the entire country. Designated so means that they are among the centers with the greatest achievements in cancer research, clinical care, education and community contributions. Their mission?...to revolutionize cancer prevention, detection and care.
CJ Charles and the Moores Cancer Center
As Vahid Moradi, president of CJ Charles Jewelers stated, "Whether it's been a personal encounter, or it's happened to a friend of family member, there is not one of us whose lives have not been touched in some way by cancer. And in the holiday season, when we're especially looking forward to good times with friends and family, we have cause to think of those who fight a daily battle with this disease and what little we can do to help them".
Following through on this sentiment, we at CJ Charles Jewelers have pledged to donate 5% of our retail sales from the period between 11/26 and 12/8 to the Moores Cancer Society. For every watch and gorgeous bauble that you buy from us in that week, 5% of your purchase will go toward making someone a little more comfortable and pain-free...toward giving them a little bit more hope of a long and healthy life.
Christmas and Hannukah are almost upon us...a time of love and sharing. And let's be honest, it's also the time we indulge ourselves and our dear ones with those earrings and watches and necklaces and whatnot that we've been eyeing for the last year (or maybe longer). So now, when you're admiring that Cartier watch or those diamond bracelets and toying with the thought of buying them, give into it knowing that not only are you making yourself or your gift-ee happy...you're also sharing that happiness with someone who may not know you but will value it just the same.
So come by the store that week especially, or browse through our collections online, and make the holidays a special time for yourselves and for someone else. Every time you look down at that piece of jewelry or that watch, you'll always know you were part of making someone's life better!
