02 Oct Morra Designs Fall Give Back
New York based jewelry company Morra Designs is teaming up with Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region (RMHC-CR) with a Fall Give Back offer. To help sustain the mission of RMHC-CR in the face of COVID-19, part of the proceeds of all Morra Design sales will contribute to RMHC-CR’s re-imagined virtual Autumn Auction.
Beginning October 1, RMHC-CR will receive 50% of all profits from jewelry sales on the Morra Designs website to tie in with the RMHC-CR Virtual Autumn Auction. The partnership will continue with RMHC-CR receiving proceeds from sales through the end of the holiday season (December 31, 2020).
The offer is open to the public for anyone who would like to participate by following @MorraDesignsJewelry on Instagram. With a follow you will receive a shopping code, and proceeds from all sales using the code will benefit RMHC-CR.
2020 has been an unprecedented year for everyone, including the many children and families who rely on RMHC-CR. Since mid-March, we have supported more than 140 families with children needing critical medical care during the COVID-19 pandemic. When we were forced to close our Ronald McDonald House in order to prevent the spread of infection, we provided more than 1,400 overnight hotel stays – along with meals, comfort items and emotional support – to help families in their time of need. “The House That Love Built” has since resumed operations and continues to offer all services completely free of charge.
“Feeling safe and loved is paramount for a child. Childhood should be a carefree, curious, happy time,” said Heather Morra. “RMHC-CR works to give these gifts to every child and every family in need. Morra Designs is inspired by all the love that RMHC-CR gives to the communities especially to children. We APPLAUD you and we SUPPORT you.”
“At RMHC-CR, we draw on the compassion of our community to support the health and well-being of hundreds of children and families each year,” said Sue Nigra, Director of Development for RMHC-CR. “Thanks to the tremendous compassion of Morra Designs, people now have a unique opportunity to help us when they purchase beautiful jewelry for themselves and their loved ones. As we look ahead to the holiday season and we continue to serve families throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we are especially grateful for this partnership.”
