License Plate Reservations
Monday, June 30, 2014 from 5:00 PM to 5:01 PM (CDT)
TSPN and the Jason Foundation are officially gathering signatures for an official specialty license plate promoting suicide prevention authorized by state legislation. This license plate will be the first one in the country devoted to the cause of suicide prevention. A share of the proceeds from the sale of these plates will fund suicide prevention efforts in our state.
Now we need your help to make this project a reality. Specifically, we need 1,000 signatures from people who plan to purchase this plate in order to justify its production by the Tennessee Department of Revenue. You may pre-order one of these plates at at a cost of $35.
Make sure to specify if you would like a specific letter or number combination for your plate to commemorate a loved one or a special date--just so long as it comes out to four characters.
TSPN and the Jason Foundation extend their sincere to Teresa Kimbro Culbreath, a survivor of suicide who campaigned for several years for the creation of a license plate supporting suicide prevention efforts. We must also acknowledge the support of State Rep. Jeremy Faison who was ultimately responsible for carrying this legislation through the General Assembly to its signature by Governor Bill Haslam.
We encourage you to go ahead and pre-order a plate today so you can ensure the viability of this project. These license plates will lead to unprecedented exposure for the cause of suicide prevention in Tennessee and the agencies working to prevent suicide in our state.
