This year the Daughters of the Nile Foundation added a “Rose Garden” for members to honor or remember the special people that “Made a Difference” in their lives.
For a small donation the donors were given a card with a rose on the front to write the name of those they wished to honor or remember. Cards were displayed at the Foundation Booth. Donors added their own names on the back of the cards to be eligible to win one of the four plates that were made with the help of Past Supreme Queen Sharon St. John after the Daughters of the Nile Plaque Presentation at the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Shreveport, Louisiana. To view the video of this event click on the picture above of the Rose Garden.

It is with great pleasure that the Daughters of the Nile Foundation introduces the “official” NOW certificate. This certificate is similar to the Stepping Stones to Happiness certificate which benefits the Convalescent Endowment Fund. The NOW certificate will benefit the Convalescent Relief Account and will be purchased in the same way as the Stepping Stones to Happiness are purchased. For a donation of $25.00, there are both an In Honor Of and an In Memory Of NOW certificate.
In the past, the creation of the NOW certificates were the responsibility of the Princess Recorder of each Temple. This will no longer be the case. Attached to this email is the new order form you may use to purchase the NOW certificates through the Daughters of the Nile Foundation.
The Foundation hopes this new certificate will give the Temples, and help the members feel, they have a choice between the Convalescent Endowment Fund and the Convalescent Relief Account when they want to honor someone or make a memorial donation.
Princesses Recorder may use the ORDER FORM or you may purchase a certificate by visiting our ONLINE GIFT STORE.
It is a milestone we have been anticipating – reaching the $56 million mark! Since 1924, members and friends of Daughters of the Nile have contributed over $56 million to Shriners Hospitals for Children®. This achievement makes Daughters of the Nile one of the largest single contributors to this remarkable network of hospitals. Each year, hundreds of children with orthopedic conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs are treated in a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment. Shriners Hospitals for Children® treats children without regard to race, color, creed, sex, disability, national origin or ability of the patient or family to pay. The care given is the best in the world, and many techniques and treatments that are common in hospitals around the country today were pioneered at Shriners Hospitals for Children®.
Daughters of the Nile across North America work tirelessly in raising money for Shriners Hospitals for Children® through the Daughters of the Nile Foundation. Donations to the Convalescent Endowment Fund and Convalescent Relief Account mean help for children today and in the future. Each year, the Daughters of the Nile Foundation contributes over $2 million to the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children® in North America. Check out our online Gift Store for ways you can help. The Daughters of the Nile Foundation is proud of its contributions and of reaching the $56 million mark! Thank you to all our friends and supporters who have made this achievement possible.
