Rothstein Jewelers of Beverly Hills Donates to the Homeless

Give to Our Local Homeless and Receive Discount on Jewelry

Janet Rothstein, owner of J. Rothstein Jewelers of Beverly Hills, encounters many homeless people every day in downtown Los Angeles - right in the Jewelry District. She even knows some of the "regulars" by name. They live on the sidewalks and behind alley dumpsters. They dig through the trash for food and recyclable bottles and cans. Some are currently going to rehab programs for alcohol dependence. Many have medical problems or injuries, and no doctor.

This woman "Angel" has had leg injuries, and very few teeth left. She always has something to tell me: Her boyfriend threw her cat out the window.... Someone stole all her money.... She would like to have some underwear & pants.... It's her birthday!

They all need food and clothing, and for some, money specifically for a room to stay in overnight during these cold and rainy nights. Many don't have a place to shower, so they look and smell dirty. One has said that there she won't go to a shelter because of the "contagious sick people coughing" in there, as well as a long waiting line for the shortage of beds and food.

There are countless more homeless people including children, living in cardboard lean-to's, stretching down entire blocks around Main Street.

J. Rothstein Jewelers of Beverly Hills is doing Ear Piercing for $20 (including 24K surgical steel earrings) and will donate 10% of all the sales towards food and clothing for the homeless.

We hope you will come on our special Valentine's Day, but we will continue this offer all year.

If you prefer to contribute to our cause of helping these unfortunate homeless people, you may bring in donations of food or clothing yourself. In turn, we will give you a 10% discount on your ear piercing, gold or silver jewelry, or jewelry repairs.

We will also donate 10% of all internet, email, or phone-in orders thru July 2009. We continually search through our own cupboards and closets all year long for items to donate.

Thank you so much,
~Janet Rothstein
