KIND WORDS FROM BEAUTIFUL ORGANIZATIONS WE'VE PARTNERED WITH...
"Eliza is absolutely wonderful to work with. Jewels With A Purpose participated in the Vision of Children Foundation’s largest fundraiser of 2019, A Night For Sight, and she was able to raise nearly $12,000 in an hour and a half! She is professional, kind, and the guests love her and her auction pieces. We didn’t have to lift a finger – Eliza took care of everything which allowed us to focus on other aspects of the event. Her displays are beautiful and she would be a great addition to any fundraising event! We look forward to working with her at many more of our events. Your next event NEEDS to include Jewels with a Purpose! Thank you for a wonderful experience!" - Katie Christopher, www.visionofchildren.org
"When our regular jewelry donor fell through this year, we had to do some quick thinking, as jewelry is a key part of our event’s silent auction. Eliza worked with us personally to ensure that all of the pieces would work for our crowd and customized everything to our needs. She checked in periodically to keep us informed of the process, and when the jewelry arrived, it took my breath away. Partnering with Eliza was a no-brainer – in total, we raised more than $5,000 from the jewelry sales alone! - Rose Rosario, Senior Events Planner, Fraser Foundation and Emma Craig, Community Engagement Associate

She is dedicated to helping us raise as much money as possible for our foster youth! - Kathy Karpe, Director of Development "Casa de Amparo"
"Dear Eliza, words can't describe our gratitude to you. In the weeks following the gala, we've reflected on the impact and value you bring to our organization. Your generosity of time and resources this year, as well as over the ongoing years, have meant the world to us. Your decision to partner with Natural High helped create an atmosphere of generosity and impact that inspired us all. This year's gala proved to be our best in three years. On behalf of the tens of thousands of educators using Natural High to impact their students, THANK YOU! You are truly among those heroes fighting for the lives of the youth in this nation , and we honor you. Thank you for understanding the heart of Natural High. You are the heart behind what we do.
