Heritage Auctions has announced the creation of a “Dollars For Dimes” charitable initiative in 2013 to benefit the mission of The March of Dimes, a United States nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of mothers and babies. In it, Heritage will donate $1 to the Dallas chapter of the organization for every dime it sells during the calendar year.
“Heritage has a long history of working with various charities, with the March of Dimes chief among them,” said Steve Ivy, co-founder and co-chair of Heritage Auctions. “We’ve made standing donations to the March of Dimes for several years and wanted to make it more interactive for collectors. They’ll know now that, with their purchase of a dime from us – any year and any grade – will result in a donation to a very good cause.”
Heritage estimates the total amount of the 2013 donation, based on the numbers from 2010-2012, will exceed $10,000.
