The Together While Apart Project Fundraiser
The Together While Apart Art Project is a nationally recognized art collaboration that showcases the work of 19 diverse artists from 8 different states across the country. During the loss, sadness, anxiety, and unrest of 2020, South Carolina artist Deane Valentine Bowers brought together a group of artists who wanted to use their creative talents to bring Hope to others, as well as comfort themselves. This amazing piece was finished in early 2021. After traveling to temporary exhibitions at medical facilities throughout the Southeast for 10 months, it will finally arrive at its forever home. The University of Virginia Medical Center will permanently acquire it in June 2022. The Together While Apart Project has been included in The Smithsonian Institute's "Stories of 2020" and recognized by ChannelKindness.Org, a nonprofit co-founded by Lady Gaga.
Introducing The Together While Apart 2020 Thank You Campaign:
The goal of this campaign is to raise $20, 200, an amount chosen because it reflects the numbers 2020, the year our national healthcare professionals truly became heroes.
During the campaign, there will be a target ask amount of $20.20, with the ability to donate a greater amount as well. Donors may give in honor of a special healthcare professional whether they are a nurse or not, but the fundraiser directly serves Registered Nurses across the country. Any designated professional who receives a gift in their honor will receive a note of gratitude and thanks from The Together While Apart Project.
This is a one time campaign that will stay in place until the financial goal has been met. Whether it takes 6 weeks or 6 months, this fundraiser will be live until we reach $20, 200. The campaign will be run by the American Nurses Association and all money raised will go towards the American Nurses Foundation Well-Being Initiative programs supporting the mental health and wellness of Registered Nurses in the United States.
About the Artwork:
The artwork is created from repurposed cardboard, an example that even the most ordinary items can have significant value. The only abundant art supplies Deane had to offer each participant during the lockdown phase of the pandemic were cardboard pieces from recycled shipping boxes she had accumulated. Each of the 19 artists received several 6” x 6” squares of cut cardboard to decorate any way they desired. Deane imagined a large quilt-like composition that would reflect each artist’s personality by allowing them to design their own piece(s). She brought them all together in a cohesive and unique composition that reflects what was in each artist’s heart at that time. At each exhibition location, this artwork has renewed faith, optimism, strength, and connection in all who have viewed it. It is a visual reminder of Hope and Healing. This amazing composition is proof that kindness and generosity, a tiny spark of an idea and some old cardboard boxes can have a far-reaching impact on others.
Samantha Roecker Boston Marathon Fundraiser
In January, 2022 Samantha Roecker (BSN, RN, MSC) contacted the American Nurses Foundation with an idea to complete two ambitious goals. The UPenn Registered Nurse and FNP student was going to run the Boston Marathon in April and attempt to break the "Guiness World Record For Fastest Marathon In A Nurses Uniform". The second goal was important to her, which was to raise awareness and funds to help address the issues of nurse burnout and fatigue. Over the past two years Samantha witnessed and personally experienced the effect that the COVID-19 pandemic had on nurses, both mentally and physically. In parternering with the American Nurses Foundation, a fundraiser was created to benefit the Foundation's Well-Being Initiative, which provides crucial and complimentary wellness resources to nurses including therapeutic hotlines, mobile apps designed to regulate mood and sleep, a series of podcasts on mental health, and many more robust tools that are readily available to all nurses in need.
After the race was completed on April 18th not only had Samantha broken the record, she also raised over $52,000 for the Well-Being Initiative! We celebrate Samantha's achievement today as a part of National Nurses Month. Thanks to her perserverance she was able to double her initial fundraising goal in addition to completing the marathon in record time.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, this nation’s 4.3 million nurses have been a source of hope and a crucial pillar of support for the health of our communities. The American Nurses Foundation is thrilled to celebrate this year’s Nurses Month to honor these nurses, spending a moment to care for them just as they always care for us.
The American public ranks nurses as the most trusted professionals – now 19 years in a row. Despite this high regard, nurses often lack the support they need in a workplace as intensive as theirs. This May, we are inviting the public that holds so much love for our nation’s nurses to show your gratitude by joining in the celebration of nurses.
