Vessl Supports Nurses on the Frontlines Through Thank A Nurse Campaign in November
Vessl, Inc., owners of the VesslTM technology and the ready to drink tea brand Tea of a KindTM, announced today that the company is joining forces with the Nightingale 2030 Resilience Fund and the American Cancer Society to spearhead a Thank a Nurse Campaign that begins November 1, 2020. The campaign will focus on sharing stories and thanks for nurses in Arizona and across the country through the Tea of a KindTM social media outlets.
“Nurses protect and look over us without expectations — we owe them a simple thanks” declares Patricia Donohoe, Executive Director Nightingale 2030 Resilience Fund.
The Nightingale 2030 Resilience Fund supports nurses on the frontlines, from the start of their careers and throughout their retirement. In a show of support, Vessl TM will donate 5% of all Tea of a KindTM sales through the month of November, to the Nightingale 2030 Resilience Fund. Additionally, VesslTM plans to donate Tea of a KindTM products to frontline nurses across the country throughout the month of November.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has designated 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and Midwife. Nurses and midwives play a vital role in providing health services. These are the people who devote their lives to caring for mothers and children; giving lifesaving immunizations and health advice; looking after older people and generally meeting everyday essential health needs. They are often, the first and only point of care in their communities. The world needs 9 million more nurses and midwives if it is to achieve universal health coverage by 2030.
“As a breast cancer survivor, I couldn’t be more thrilled with the collaboration between Tea of a KindTM and the Thank a Nurse Campaign. Not only do I believe in the cause, a special nurse, Suzanne Phillips, was critical to my healing,” commented Cynthia Kotsay-Apodaca, wife of Walter Apodaca, founder and CEO of Vessl, Inc.
