Community Support

At Richardson, we firmly believe philanthropy to be a significant building block in our goal to be good corporate citizens. Giving back to our community and supporting charitable organizations affords us the ability to enrich the lives of not only those we support, but also, the lives of our employees. If we strive to be leaders within our industry, we must first learn to serve those around us.

  • Military Support
  • March of Dimes
  • Saving Grace – A Night of Hope
  • Jewelers for Children
  • Adopt-a-Family

In the fall of 2009, the employees of Richardson wanted to express their gratitude to members of the armed forces who were serving away from home during the holiday season.  The company decided to adopt a military unit stationed in Iraq.

The 121st Support Battalion, a logistics sustainment unit assigned to the 4th Brigade combat Team, 1st Armored Division was selected.  This group of over 1,100 troops was located at Combat Operating Base Adder in the southern province of Dhi Qua, Iraq.  They represented over 38 separate military occupational specialties in areas such as electronic maintenance, fuel support, water purification and preventative medicine.  They also provide training and assistance to elements of the Iraq Security Forces that are comprised of the Iraqi Army, Police, Highway Patrol and Division Border Enforcement.

2011 Richardson Raiders Donation

Once adopted, the troops were designated as the “Richardson Raiders.”  Our employees packed cartons of items ranging from playing cards, candy, lens cleaners and other items deemed useful by young service personnel serving in Iraq.  The care packages arrived during the Thanksgiving holiday and were a welcome blessing to our service men and women, bringing an additional touch of holiday cheer to all!

Read the letter we received from Major John A Hotek, United States Army.

Our 2011 Richardson Raiders are the members of Echo Company, 125th Brigade Support Battalion. They are currently in Afghanistan working hard to  provide tactical logistics support to the members of the 1st Battalion, 41st Infantry Regiment. Richardson collected 5 boxes of snacks, candy, books, sunscreen, and baby-wipes to send to the soldiers. Thanks guys for all you do and stay safe this Holiday Season!

In January 1938, President Roosevelt established the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis – a unique partnership of scientists and volunteers – to conquer polio. Comedian Eddie Cantor created the first grassroots fund-raiser for the National Foundation, asking the public to send dimes to President Roosevelt at the White House. The effort was called the March of Dimes, which later became part of the official name of the foundation.

The March of Dimes mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. They carry out this mission through research, community services, education and advocacy to save babies’ lives. March of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach workers and advocates work together to give all babies a fighting chance against the threats to their health: prematurity, birth defects, low birth weight.

The March of Dimes has had the generous support of the motorcycling community for more than a decade. The Kansas City Bikers for Babies ride began with 130 riders raising $3,000. By 2010, 6200 participants raised more than $715,000 bringing the 16 year total to $5.1 million! Funds raised by Bikers for Babies support local research grants focused on issues related to premature birth and community programs such as NICU Family Support at Saint Luke’s Hospital.

For many years, Richardson has supported the Bikers for Babies ride by donating creative design and printing services.

Despite being one of the oldest diseases on record, preeclampsia - a pregnancy-related disorder - remains one of the leading causes of mothers and babies dying around the world. New moms and babies represent one of the major patient groups in need of life-saving blood transfusions. In 2011, the 7th annual Saving Grace dinner gala will be a unique collaboration between two complementary and vital organizations delivering solutions. All monies raised will be shared equally between these two organizations:

Preeclampsia Foundation
The Preeclampsia Foundation's mission is to provide patient support and education, raise public awareness, catalyze research, and improve health care practices. We envision a world where preeclampsia no longer threatens the lives of mothers and babies.

Jewelers for Children was founded in 1999 by the U.S. jewelry industry with the mission of helping children in need. Since its inception, JFC has donated more than $ 37 million to programs benefiting children whose lives have been affected by illness, abuse, or neglect through our charity partners St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, and the National CASA Association. JFC also provides support to the Make-A-Wish Foundation International and the Santa-America Fund. This nationwide success is due to the continuing generosity of jewelry trade organizations, jewelry and watch manufacturing companies, jewelry retail stores, individual jewelry professionals, and jewelry consumers.

Our goals are to unite the generous charitable giving efforts of the jewelry industry to support as many children in need as possible. We strive to involve more and more jewelers in our efforts and to promote to the consumer the good work that the jewelry industry is doing through Jewelers for Children.

The support from the jewelry industry has allowed for more than 1,200 children to be granted wishes in the U.S. and more than 12,000 to have their wish granted in India. More than 4,000 children in foster care have been helped with the support from the jewelry industry and more than 100,000 women have received support at clinics in developing countries. Our support has also provided for a bone marrow transplant unit, a chair in Genes and Genetic therapy and a stem cell transplant laboratory, all providing for hundreds of children to be treated for deadly cancers.

Richardson is a proud sponsor of this organization through monetary donations.

In 1978 The Children's Place began serving the developmental and mental health needs of children who had suffered abuse, neglect, or other trauma. They are also a recognized leader in the prevention and treatment of child abuse and neglect, serving the entire Kansas City community. The Children's Place provides the support and guidance necessary to enable these young survivors to thrive in their communities.

Each holiday season Richardson participates in an Adopt-a-Family program through The Children's Place. We are paired with a family in need and join together to fulfill each member’s Christmas wish list.  A gift under the tree is a small thing but it can mean the world to a child in need.

It is truly a joy to participate in this program each year.  Although we are never allowed to meet the receiving family, we know that through our generosity and support, we are making a difference, one family at a time.
