Flight Migration

Project Reach

Where are the Nightingales? As a spin-off to our original project, we hope that someday every nurse in the world will have a token of appreciation coin/medallion. We are mapping the flight migration of the gifts we send to Nightingales all over the world.

For every Fine Silver Commemorative Coin purchased, we send an Antique Bronze Commemorative coin to nurses in impoverished areas of the world so they also may enjoy the recognition and inspiration!
