Jewelry has notoriously low resale value. So, rather than selling off your old diamond, specialty or estate jewelry, why not donate it to make dreams come true for breast cancer patients? Through its Diamonds for Dreams program, the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation uses funds from the sale of unwanted jewelry to grant wishes for patients diagnosed with terminal breast cancer.

To donate your jewels, simply pack them up, ship them by certified mail, Fed Ex, UPS or DHL and request a signature from the recipient for added security. Those pieces you never wear could be a wish come true for patients and their families.
