Hi everyone! Popping in with a quick post today, a bit different than my usual posts. I have a giveaway to announce! I think we are all trying to give back a little and there are so many different ways to do that. Today I wanted to share these awesome handmade badge holders with special healthcare workers in your life!

I would love to gift my daughter-in-love one of these beauties! She’s a PA at Duke Hospital. Thank you for the chance!
Thank you for the chance to receive this badge holder. My x daughter in law who is the mother to my 6 grand children is a ER nurse in Las Vegas. She went through the schooling couple years ago and has worked her way up. She is such a hard worker and has shed many tears in private for the loss of patients and those that are in needs / desperate needs.. She’s on the front line as people come to the ER. I pray for her safety and the safety for my grandchildren and her husband. I love her and who she is. I know she’d love to win this beautiful badge holder.
He’s not on the front lines, but he keeps the
equipment in the hospital running. He is a
HVAC trained mechanic, but also works
on other issues ( i.e. removes snow off the
driveways in the winter). He’d give this
gift to his mother (me) if he is picked.
He’s been my link to the outside world
during this stay-at-home order)
thanks for the offer.
My daughter Amber who is a nurse and an EMT. She is also raising 3 beautiful daughters.
This is super idea!
I nominate my best friend since childhood, who grew up & qualified to be the fantastic nurse she always wanted to be as a child. She is a sister at Good Hope hospital in Birmingham, England. She has worked every day possible through this covid 19 crisis, supporting her fellow staff & patients & putting her health worries to one side so not to let anyone else down during this aweful time.
I nominate my amazing friend (and former work wife/roommate) Summer! She worked on my floor as a travel nurse and ended up living with me for 6 months. She then took another assignment in north GA and currently cares for COVID positive patients daily. She’s also genuinely the sweetest person I know; she has a true heart of gold and is a light in mine and so many other’s lives.
I nominate my boss in the Operating Room – Anne-Marie. She works hard to keep up morale and to keep us informed.
My sweet and very dear friend Sandi went back to school 5 years ago, for her second degree, after being a stay at home mom for her 3 boys. She decided nursing was her calling and works at a hospital as a float nurse. Any given day can have her caring for others on many different spectrums of healthcare. What a wonderful giveaway, which I know she would love. Just like I love her and her ability to care for others, especially during this trying and unknown time.
My daughter-in-love is a PA at Duke Hospital and works tirelessly in the abdominal transplant unit. I would love to gift her with one of these beauties. Her, husband, my son is in law enforcement and they both work so hard to better their communities.
My dear friend Marissa (also my name too!) Is working 2 jobs back to back on the front lines right now. She has been taking care of veterans that came from a Soldiers home in Western Massachusetts with a major outbreak. Our local hospital converted space for the veterans to live in a safe environment and Marissa takes night and weekend shifts there on top of her day nursing supervisor job. Today she was supposed to get married in Key West to her love of 10 years and engaged for 5 but is keeping her mind busy by doing what she is best at….caring for anyone and everyone no matter the risk to herself. This giveaway would give her some hope she will get her beach wedding soon enough and will remind her of a time she really touched a lot of people! Thank you for considering @mriss !!!
My very best friend Brittany is a nurse that has continued doing her very best since the day she graduated school. Without fear she continues her job, despite living with chronic illness, she pushes forward and takes care of others. I admire her with everything in me, and I hope I can be half as good as she is when I enter the health care field myself.
My mother has been a critical care nurse for the past 36 years. She’s selflessly been at the front lines throughout this pandemic in spite of a severe back injury. We’re planning on moving to Cape Cod in the next year or so, so I know this would make her so happy!
My son Ricky’s fiance Tara is a head nurse in Beth Israel Deaconess, here in Plymouth. She works very long hours. The only thing they tell me is she’s fine don’t worry and its not too bad at the hospital But I do worry and wonder. She’s is an ocean girl and surfer Id love to win this for her Thank you for the Chance!
My sister is an essential worker. Day in and day out she goes and works to take care of the corona patients. She has worked very hard to get her to this point in her career!
I have two friends who are health care workers and I think about them every day during this time. I’m in awe of such amazing people who are continually working their hardest to keep people healthy during this pandemic. I love EJ Artistry and her work is beautiful. These are a great way to brighten the day of someone risking their health for ours.
My daughter is an essential worker. She is an social worker at DCF on Cape Cod. This pandemic has been extremely hard in her field because unfortunately, domestic and child abuse and addiction doesn’t stop for a pandemic and in many cases increases. Trying to find foster homes for children is even more difficult right now and is an ongoing battle. She works hard everyday and puts herself at risk as well with covid-19, all while trying to take care of her own family with 2 young kids. My daughter always fights to help the helpless, the sick, the poor, the vulnerable. She is strong, caring, determined, compassionate and gives hope to those that feel hopeless. She is my hero !! ❤️
PS: She also happens to love this artist and loves everything she creates.
I work as a nurse in Boston!! I was, prior to this, a urology nurse but my floor has been converted to a COVID unit. I’ve been working endless hours throughout the past 6-8 weeks. I have always loved and appreciated ej.artistry’s work!! Stay safe and safe healthy everyone!!!
My two best friends are both healthcare workers in the ER, and I know these badges would brighten their days so much! We all met each other during the summer working on the beach in Wildwood, NJ, and having one of these gorgeous badge reels will bring them both peace and happiness that they would normally get from visiting the beaches and ocean. Thank you!
My best friend Kirstin is a kick ass nurse in the cardiovascular icu! She has dedicated her adult life to helping people. Less than a year after she graduated nursing school (with honors) she was hit by a drunk driver and spent 8 months in rehab, and the entire time she kept saying how she couldn’t wait to get back to work. She has been back to work as a nurse since April 2019 helping people and giving me motivation that you really can do anything.
My daughter, Taylor, has been a nurse for 18 months!! She is very stressed out about this horrible Pandemic and bringing it home to all of us!! She was confirmed positive and was quarantined in her room for 15 days straight, only coming out to use her bathroom!! She is fine and back to work again, to help care for patient of Covid!! I couldn’t be more proud of her!! She is my hero and always will be!! 💕💕💕💕
My daughter is an essential healthcare worker at a local hospital. While the rest of us at home get to sleep in and stay home everyday, she is out the door by 6:30 a.m. for her hour commute. Though her anxiety is high due to this virus, her workplace, and not seeing her boyfriend in two months due to social distancing, she amazes me with her strength to do what needs to be done. ❤️
My Sister Amberly Hoffman is a nurse at IU hospital in Bloomington IN.
My good friend and coworker is a Registered Nurse Anesthetist. We are in NY in Westchester County;the epicenter of NY’s Covid crisis. Most all staff from the OR have been reassigned to other units. Deven volunteered to be part of the “proning team”, which means you go from unit to unit fliping intimated patients from their back to their stomach every hour or so. Anesthesia must be there to prevent accidental extubation. It’s grueling, exhausting and heartbreaking. Most all of those patients are not making it.
She’s one of the smartest, strongest and compassionate people I know. But she, like many of us are so, so tired. We can’t wait to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
*intubated patients, not intimidated.
I am a nurse and work with some amazing front line workers. I would love to surprise one.
A good friend of mine from elementary school is an actual rockstar healthcare hero. She is an operating room nurse and a US Navy nurse all while being a badass mom. Most recently she was called up to the Navy to go to Guam. She had to leave her two year old, husband and job to serve our country. I am so proud to call her a friend.
My niece is ER nurse
My daughter is an essential health care worker and I admite her strength and tenacity during these times. She’s had to take precautions to ensure she doesn’t pass anything on to her husband or her 2 1/2 yr old daughter.
I’m the health care worker in my life. 😁 These are gorgeous! At my hospital we wear assigned scrub colors by department, so we are always looking for ways to individualize our uniforms. Badge holders are one way. Thanks for this thoughtful give away!
