Lisa Rizziello is a Jeweler from Pennington, NJ, who uses her Premier business to bring hope and joy to women undergoing cancer treatment.
When I started selling Premier Designs Jewelry, it was not only because I love the jewelry, but because I knew that Premier truly valued community service. I have had many family members and friends suffer with cancer. I know that while undergoing cancer treatments, they have to deal with so many stressful situations. I desired to develop a program to help cancer patients, to give them a small dose of happiness, even if it was just for a brief moment in their wearisome day. Selling Premier has allowed me to fulfill that desire.
About two years ago, I started the “Sprinkling Hope with a Touch of Bling” program at the hospital where I volunteer. Patients undergoing treatment get to pick out a piece of jewelry for free; I use 25% of my proceeds to purchase the jewelry. Since Premier is so generous to their Jewelers, it allows me to fund my program easily. They always respond with such happiness and gratitude, and sometimes tears. It’s a very moving time for both of us as we choose their jewelry piece. Even though the idea is to give something to them, I feel truly blessed to be able to spend time with these very special and courageous ladies.
