A local company offers you a way to get cash in your hand or donate to your favorite charity without ever opening up you checkbook.
People can help their favorite charities (such as the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation) by holding Red Swan parties.
Red Swan buys old, unwanted jewelry. People can hold a party for their friends where they bring their old bracelets, necklaces or rings.
Partygoers are given boxes that they are asked to fill with their unwanted jewelry. The jewelry is appraised and the host gets a commission that can go to their favorite charity.
