GelGems has asked local stores to partner with a charity of their choice for their 2013 window contest. Stores are asked to make a work of window art which promotes that cause and the winner will get $1000 to give to their chosen charity! Since we are on the Marathon route and some of our customers ran that day, we have chosen The One Fund Boston.
Vote for our One Fund window at gelgems.com between June 3rd and 14th! If we win, $1000 will go to the One Fund! Do your part by telling your friends to vote!
“The One Fund Boston was established through the generosity of businesses, foundations and individual donors. It was created at the request of Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. The Victim Relief Fund of The One Fund Boston will be used to assist those families of the victims who were killed and the victims who were most seriously affected as a result of the tragic events during the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 and related events on April 18th and April 19th.” — The One Fund
We want to thank our staff who helped create this window–everyone was eager to pitch in!
GelGems are colorful, jelly shapes you can use to make imaginative scenes on your window. They are thicker than regular window clings and kids love their tactile quality and jewel-like appearance. We have them in basic shapes as well as themes, numbers, and letters. Call or stop by to see our selection!
