Albert Einstein once said that a
number by itself has no significance. Here at Children’s
Hospital, we disagree. In a world of PINs, passwords and secret
identification numbers, there is one number that you can proudly
share with everyone—it’s the four-digit number on a new
Children’s Hospital specialty license plate.
You should know this is more than
just a colorful plate bolted to your bumper. The significance of
this number can be measured by miracles. Miracles happen every
day at Children’s Hospital and by choosing to display the
specialty plate, you are telling your friends, family and the
thousands of motorists you pass that you had a hand in making a
miracle happen. We encourage you to choose a number of meaning
to you—a child’s birthday, anniversary or any four-digit number
you prefer, if it is available.
Here are some more numbers of
75……………..number of years Children’s
Hospital has cared for East Tennessee’s children.
270,000……….number of annual patient
visits to Children’s Hospital.
420,000……….daily dollar amount it
takes to keep Children’s Hospital operational.
We hope you will consider helping
the thousands of children served by Children’s Hospital. In
order for the plate to go into production, 1,000 plates must be
reserved. We are nearly halfway to that goal, and we invite you
to be part of the groundswell of East Tennesseans showing their
support to this project. We encourage you to act now; we have
less than a month to meet the 1,000-plate minimum. You can
reserve your plate by completing the enclosed reservation card
or by calling (865) 541-8741. Thank you in advance for you
continued support of East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, a place
where no gift is insignificant.
