Lydia Comfort Dog Jewelry Fundraiser Print E-mail
From Kat Bunker - Lydia Comfort Dog’s Scheduler:
Treasures from the Jewelry Box

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.“ Matthew 6:21 ”Jewelry

Many people, from all across the country, donated treasures from their jewelry boxes to be sold to raise money for Lydia Comfort Dog’s deployment fund. These people showed, in a literal way, that their hearts were set on the ministry of bringing the comfort of Christ to hurting people. LCC’s trained Comfort Dogs are on the scene at many places where life has been harsh and comfort is needed. Lydia Comfort Dog, who is stationed with Messiah Lutheran Church in Lynnfield, MA, will be able to respond to these needs as long as her team can raise the funds.


North Boston Comfort Team decided to hold a Jewelry Sale. Newspaper ads, flyers, word of mouth & social media were used to request donations of people’s jewelry that they no longer wore. Boxes & bags of jewelry began showing up in MA from all sides, even from TX and CA and I !!!! For months before the sale, team members cleaned, repaired and carded/bagged each piece of jewelry. A professional appraiser donated his time to look at the higher end items, test them for gold value and help us price them.

We even asked for broken jewelry and single earrings. Jewelry collages in the shape of a CHRISTmas tree or framing a mirror or a photo can be really wonderful!! We will make some over the winter.

The sale was held Saturday, October 17 from 10am-2pm. (In hindsight, we may open at 8am at the Spring Jewelry Sale). Prices were kept very low. Printed photos of ideas for wearing jewelry were on the tables. For example, clip on earrings can be worn on each side of a t-shirt, or in the hair. Pins can go on a hat or a purse.

Refreshments were provided with small tables for shoppers to sit, enjoy a coffee and think about what they’d like to buy. The end result was very, very successful.

So successful (and so many pieces of jewelry still to sell) that the team wants to do a Jewelry Sale in the Spring of 2016.

Lydia Comfort Dog was present at the setup, as well as during the show. Customers could sit and spend some time with her. Just being able to sit and be with her increased their excitement for the Comfort Dog ministry. We passed around Lydia’s business card & every person smiled when told that Lydia had a Facebook page and asked if they would please sign it.

There are many ways to fundraise and Comfort Dog Teams need a constant flow of fundraising in order to be able to travel to disaster sites. They also need funds for the care & maintenance of the Comfort Dog.
