Charriol Says "L'Chaim to Life" & Asks You to Aid Special Needs Children & Adults in Need.
The Chabad “L’Chaim to Life” Telethon welcomes internationally renowned jeweler CHARRIOL as a new sponsor. Founded in 1983 by Philippe Charriol in Geneva, CHARRIOL is an international luxury brand that specializes in fine Swiss watches, jewelry and accessories.
This Tetethon supports Chabad’s network of over 200 community outreach centers and a broad range of educational and nonsectarian programs that provide social services to the needy and support for children with special needs. Last year’s broadcast generated more than $8 million in charitable gifts, with donations ranging from a single dollar to tens of thousands. The Telethon is co-chaired by Hollywood mega producer Jerry Weintraub and all-star attorney Marshall Grossman.
CHARRIOL will be donating a special “Chabad Telethon 2009″ edition of the magnificent and mystical Magen David “Mechumash” hand crafted silver necklace. This striking piece will be shown several times per hour during the 6-hour live broadcast to encourage viewers, which will reach 150 million homes this year, to donate to Chabad. Those who donate $500.00 or more during the telethon will receive this very special “Thank You” appreciation gift.

“We are very proud to partner with the great organization of Chabad. We have created the special Mechumash necklace, which is a three dimensional Mechumash star in the image of Magen David necklace exclusively to benefit the Chabad Telethon.” said Jack Zemer, CEO of CHARRIOL North America. “It represents the spirituality and dedication that Chabad contributes to people around the world.”

I don’t run a lot of fundraising content that doesn’t directly deal with women but given the current state of the economy– particularly here in Los Angeles in light of the job losses and the fires, this is a time when people need to “reach across the aisle” and help others in need.
