Project Initiation - How it all started
After several successful partnerships with associations of different kinds, the Heart of Gold Project was initially launched in the USA in 2006.
With the acquired knowledge that many private persons are in possession of items containing precious metals, which have no meaningful value for them and thus are uselessly stored in the farthest corners of drawers and cupboards, often long forgotten, we developed the idea to collect those "forgotten treasures" and transform them into valuable monetary donations for charity associations.
Additionally, the Heart of Gold-Europe team is supporting associations by organizing events and campaigns. These activities are precisely tailored to the needs and wishes of each association.
The board of SOS Martosdogs e.V. about the experience with Heart of Gold-Europe
Since many years, our association SOS Martosdogs e.V. has been benefiting from the dental donation campaigns organized by the Heart of Gold-Europe charity project of the recycling trading company RTC - Norphone.
Like all the other non-profit organizations, we urgently need donations to support our animal welfare work.
This year, we can look forward to a new, attractive donation project that will give us a gilded start into 2018 thanks to the diligent hands of the Heart of Gold-Europe team.
Our donors are asked in a personal letter, to donate unusable old silver and gold items – such as old or broken jewelry or dental waste crowns.
The flyer design as well as the envelope preparation was done by the friendly and knowledgeable Heart of Gold-Europe staff. Even the postage costs were completely refunded! - A small luxury, which we appreciate a lot.
Since we wanted to attach the address data of our donors handwritten on the envelopes, the Heart of Gold-Europe team sent the whole package perfectly prepared to us.
Especially, we would like to thank our personal contact for the very close, reliable and individually to our needs tailored cooperation.
We are very much looking forward to the participation of our donors.
Of course, this action will also be advertised on our homepage and we hope for an even greater response.
