Washington, DC’s iconic Tiny Jewel Box is celebrating 90 years and honoring nine heroes.
The third-generation family-owned retailer decided that the best way to acknowledge ALL the ick of 2020 was to honor people who have “brought light to the community in the midst of so much darkness.” (Honor = a $1000 Tiny Jewel Box gift certificate!)
Tiny Jewel Box has a commitment to giving back to the community. For decades, the company has supported heroic local organizations that fight hunger and abuse, research to cure Parkinson’s and cancer, help seriously ill children, build better school facilities, and bring hope to those challenged by mental illness.
This year, they are asking the public for short stories about the everyday front line heroes (healthcare, food service, transportation, education, or other essential fields) in their lives. Nine front-line heroes will be selected to be publicly honored and awarded that $1000 gift certificate.
Know someone deserving? Nominations will be accepted between November 8 and November 30. Winners will be announced on December 14 and Tiny Jewel Box will share each incredible story via social media.*
