The Diamond Empowerment Fund (DEF) honored Jane Seymour and her Open Hearts Foundation together with David Rocha and Jewelers for Children for their commitment to giving back to the community. The two collected awards at the DEF’s fourth annual GOOD Awards in New York.
“We have an opportunity to create positive social and cultural change with our collective desire to make a difference in the world. When we do that – everyone wins and the entire world can be impacted by doing just a little good,” said actress, artist and philanthropist Seymour after receiving her award.
She is the designer of the “Open Hearts by Jane Seymour” jewelry collection and the founder of the Open Hearts Foundation that positively impacts young lives in the areas of wellness, education, sports and the arts.
David Rocha, executive director of Jewelers for Children, lauded the jewelers with who he works who “are constantly involved with helping others in the community – not for any personal recognition, but because it is their community and they truly care about making it a better place to live and work.”
The GOOD recognize individuals, organizations and corporations in the diamond and jewelry industry for outstanding leadership in the areas of global citizenship, sustainability and promoting opportunity for others.
