In a move that showcases its concern for kids, the American Gem Society (AGS) announced today it has nominated the Children’s Heart Foundation for the Jewelers for Children (JFC) Local Grant Program. JFC, a non-profit organization founded by the jewelry industry in 1999 is dedicated to helping children in need. The recently launched Local Grant Program has set aside $100,000 to fund ten $10,000 grants for local children’s charities around the country. Jewelers had the opportunity to nominate their favorite local, children’s charity. Public voting on the Jewelers for Children Facebook page (www.facebook.com/JewelersforChildren) will determine the top ten vote-getters to receive the grants.

As Ruth Batson, CEO of AGS and AGS Laboratories, says enthusiastically, “We were pleased to participate in the third year of this exciting program from Jewelers for Children! It is such an easy way to help support the excellent work the Children’s Heart Foundation does locally to improve the quality of life for the children of our community. Now, we’re trying to get the word out to the public to vote so the Children’s Heart Foundation receives one of these generous grants.”

As far as voting is concerned, it is simple and can be done once per day. Individuals wishing to participate can go the Jewelers for Children Facebook page (www.facebook.com/JewelersforChildren) anytime between October 5th, and October 18th, click on the Children’s Heart Foundation from among the nominees; then encourage others to visit the page and vote, too.
