"While we are all watching caregivers, nurses, and doctors giving all they can to our communities, risking their lives for us, we want to find a way to honor them. They should all get a medal, a votive offering given in gratitude or devotion.
At some point this crisis will end and there will be a moment when we can thank them for all they do. We propose to present as many health workers as we can with a medal based on a traditional ex-voto, also to mark the moment when we can see a future."

The hand metal project is asking jewellers around the world to make medals for the front line workers who have worked tirelessly for their communities. Our very own Laila Marie Costa is a Hand Keeper for Melbourne!
