Jordan's Furniture has been handing out Mardi Gras beads since they opened their Natick store in 1999, due to the "Bourbon Street" theme of the store. But now, these beads can raise some much-needed money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina in the real New Orleans.
Beginning this weekend, customers can purchase the beads for $1 or more (amount is up to each customer) and receive a set of New Orleans Mardi Gras beads to show their support. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross/Hurricane Relief Fund.
"It just made sense" said Eliot Tatelman, president of Jordan's Furniture. "We all feel a bit helpless, so far away from the disaster area. But we have a built-in way to raise money (the beads) that have a natural connection to New Orleans. The beads can also show donor support. We hope to raise a lot of money for the thousands of hurricane victims who are suffering every day."
Additionally, all proceeds from a Duck Tour Race (carnival game) in the Reading store and The Streetcar Named Dessert (ice cream store) in the Natick store will go directly to the cause, through the American Red Cross. Proceeds will be collected until the end of 2005.
Since every donation counts, please feel free to contact the American Red Cross directly to make a donation toward the cause. You can call 1-800-HELP-NOW or go online to redcross.org. To send a check, make it payable to The American Red Cross/Hurricane Relief Fund. Send to American Red Cross of Mass Bay, 285 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA 02116.
Jordan's Furniture is proud to support the relief efforts. We thank you for your cooperation and generosity.
The Jordan's Furniture store in Nashua, New Hampshire, will host an adoption event called "The Adoption Option" on Sunday morning, March 13th, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Jordan's Furniture is working in conjunction with the Mass Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) and with the New Hampshire Department of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF), which is NH's equivalent to DSS in Massachusetts.
The Nashua Adoption Option is open to the public and encourages families from both New Hampshire and Massachusetts who are interested in learning more about adoption and foster care. Guests are encouraged to register ahead of time with DCYF by calling 603-271-4319. However, walk-ins are welcome.
The Jordan's event on Sunday morning, March 13th, will be in a workshop format where guests can learn more about the adoption process in general. It encourages anybody who has thought about adoption or foster care to attend and find out more information. No children in foster care will be attending.
This is an informational event and the first step for many people who have thought about the concept but have never acted on it. The Adoption Option will provide an opportunity to find out about specific adoption topics and the adoption process.
We hope that we can take the model that we created in Massachusetts and assist in New Hampshire's cause of adoption.
Top Country Bands Perform Live at Jordan's Furniture in Reading - COUNTRY 99.5 Strives to Break Record to Reach $3 Million Mark.
On Thursday, March 10th, and Friday, March 11th, Jordan's Furniture is the host-site for the 2005 St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital WKLB Radiothon. Jordan's Furniture has partnered with popular Boston radio station WKLB (Country 99.5 FM) to raise money for the children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The hospital provides ongoing medical care for children all over the world that are diagnosed with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Last year, Country 99.5 raised nearly half a million dollars in 2 days. Over the past nine years, the radio station has raised a total of $2.3 million. This year, Country 99.5's goal is to break its record and reach $3 million in honor of its 10th anniversary supporting St. Jude's "Country Cares" cause.
"The radiothon has become a highly charged annual event and one that has won the heart and soul of Country 99.5. The outpouring of support from our listeners, local communities, and musicians is so tremendous that by the end of the two days, we are left speechless but eternally grateful for the generosity shown for this great cause. We hope to make our 10th anniversary the best year ever," said Mike Brophey, Program Director at WKLB.
Jordan's Furniture, known for it's philanthropy and community outreach, made for a natural event site. "We are thrilled to be a part of this year'ss radiothon" said Barry Tatelman of Jordan's. "We have been a supporter of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in the past. However, we are happy to increase our involvement and, in turn, help even more children. That's what it's all about."
Proceeds for the radiothon come from donations in person, over the phone, and through a live Internet auction on www.wklb.com. Auction items include David Ortiz's autographed jersey; Curt Shilling's autographed Red Sox hat; Phil Vassar autographed keyboard; autographed guitars and more.
