Hey <<First Name>>,
Last year, over $385 million worth of gold was illegally mined and smuggled from Congo. This same gold, which funds armed groups and mass violence, often ends up in jewelry stores. We want to hold jewelry stores accountable, so weâ€™re getting engaged this holiday season!
How can you get engaged? In the newspaper! With the help of the Enough Projectâ€™s Letters to the Editor Guide, weâ€™re writing letters to our local newspapers to spread the word about conflict-free gold and conflict-conscious jewelry companies during the holiday buying season. Click here to access the guide to use as a template or assistant in crafting your own letter--and donâ€™t forget to send it to us when youâ€™re done!
Join us in making some noise this holiday season; write an op-ed calling out the jewelry industry for their inaction! Weâ€™re serious about getting engaged--with conflict-free gold.

P.S. Weâ€™ll be continually updating our list of newspapers to which letters have been submitted--send us your letter to the editor, and weâ€™ll share it on our Facebook!
