We are proud to present this cheque to the Canadian Cancer Society, Manitoba Division for $1581.95 which was raised from our Mother’s Day Gemstone promotion in May 2017!

The weeks leading up to Mother’s Day are always a very special time at Appelt’s. Children who are 12 years or younger can come in with their hard earned toonie and pick out a unique and authentic gemstone for their Mom for Mother’s Day.  Picking the perfect gemstone can be tough when there are so many different colours and styles to choose from. Some Mom’s like purple amethyst and other Mom’s like blue topaz. Some Mom’s prefer round gemstones and other Mom’s prefer pear shaped gemstones. Luckily our staff at Appelt’s love to help find the perfect, special gemstone for Mom. And once the gemstone has been picked, we carefully wrap the gemstone in a special package so it’s all ready for Mom to open up on Mother’s Day. In many cases, the gemstone if often the child’s first purchase that they have ever made so we are thrilled to be part of that very special moment.

The gemstone promotion for Mother’s Day is very special for many different reasons but the best part of all is that all proceeds go the Canadian Cancer Society. “The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer”.

We want to send out a HUGE thank you to all the children that earned and donated their $2.00 to the Canadian Cancer Society this past May! Each and every dollar is going towards eradicating cancer and enhancing the quality of life of people living with Cancer in Canada.
