A monetary donation in the amount of $1,000 was made to Precious Prints in Knoxville, Tennessee. This donation was part of our International Day of Charity initiative in which 15 non-profit organizations were selected to receive monetary donations from our Spread the Love Fund.
The Precious Prints Project comforts grieving families with a sterling silver pendant bearing the fingerprint of their child. The project was developed at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Nursing in partnership with Precious Metal Prints, a local business. First launched at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital in January 2012, it has expanded to include all major health systems in Knox County, with fundraising and project management handled by the Student Nurses Association. Since the beginning of the project, through the Student Nurses Association funding efforts and project management, more than 1000 families have received a tangible linking remembrance of a child’s life that ended all too soon.
