The Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network, in coordination with the Jason Foundation, AFSP and other advocacy groups, announce they are reserving orders for the official specialty license plate promoting suicide prevention authorized by state legislation. In order to get this license plate for any, TSPN must collect 1,000 order reservations; without these 1,000 there will not be a license plate for Tennessee.
This Tennessee license plate will be the first in the country devoted to the cause of suicide prevention. A share of proceeds from the sale of these plates will fund TSPN’s suicide prevention efforts, all focusing on suicide prevention in Tennessee.
"We encourage you pre-order your plates at a cost of $35. You have the option of specifying a four-letter code between "0001" and "1000" to go on your plate, but be advised that some codes have already been reserved. As soon as 1,000 plates are reserved, production of these license plates can begin. So please, pre-order a plate today to ensure the viability of this project," officials said. "In any given day, three Tennesseans lose their life to suicide. 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."
TSPN’s Executive Director Scott Ridgway, asks for your help in spreading the word for the license plate, noting that “if Tennessee is able to have this license plate for suicide prevention, we will be taking another step forward towards saving lives in Tennessee.”
