We are super excited to report that our hand medals were delivered to health care SUPER heroes at Scripps La Jolla - a local San Diego hospital! We handed off our collection to San Diego State University's own Kerianne Quick who combined them with those made by her crew of SDSU students and then delivered the batch of 320 hand medals to Ashley Kim (@ashleykimclayworks) who is a ceramic artist and cardiovascular ICU nurse at Scripps La Jolla. We only recognize a few in the photos below but ... wow, the appreciation is sure evident. Attention to all of our hand medal makers...you can now look up your name on the project home page and read some cool stories, check it all out at handmedalproject.com. Thank you Health Care Heroes! Now, more than ever, you have our utter admiration, respect, gratitude ... and promise to #WearAMask #WashHands #StayApart and be a part of the fight to #StopCOVID.
"I am so moved by so much love and care! I love my handmedal, so thoughtful of you!!" ~ Ashley Kim, Cardiovascular ICU Nurse, Scripps La Jolla Hospital
