Nonprofit of the Year 2020
Footprints on the Heart
TurnKey Writing Solutions is pleased to recognize Footprints on the Heart
as Nonprofit of the Year 2020.
Footprints on the Heart’s mission is to raise awareness and education for pregnancy and infant loss (up to age 2). Based in Bartow County, Georgia, Footprints on the Heart envisions a society where families no longer have to bear the burden of pregnancy and infant loss in silence but instead can openly share their loss journey. Through community efforts, sharing bereavement materials, and the opportunity to connect with others who have experienced loss, the organization encourages individuals to grieve and grow in a healthy manner.
“Footprints on the Heart is humbled and grateful beyond measure to have been selected as the 2020 Turnkey Writing Solutions Nonprofit of the Year,” says Khristie Staines, Executive Director.
“Pregnancy and infant loss is still such a taboo topic in today’s society,” she continues. “Many people are uncomfortable discussing death at all but especially the death of a baby. We are thankful to our faithful supporters, both locally and from afar, and opportunities such as this one from Turnkey Writing Solutions that help to further our ministry efforts.”
Congratulations, Footprints on the heart
Previously selected as TurnKey Writing Solutions’ Nonprofit of the Month for July 2020, Footprints on the Heart competed throughout January 2021 in an online voting contest against ten other previously recognized Nonprofit of the Month awardees. The nonprofit organization that received the most community votes won the recognition. Footprints on the Heart received 29% more votes than the contest’s runner-up, earning the first annual Nonprofit of the Year Award and a $1,000 unrestricted grant.
"This grant will be used to purchase infant caskets, urns, memorial jewelry, cremation jewelry, and our H.O.P.E. Box contents," Staines shared. "It will also provide additional resources needed as we walk alongside families who face the unimaginable loss of a baby in the first two years of life."
Nominations are accepted for TurnKey’s Nonprofit of the Month award via the organization’s website on a rolling basis. Once a nomination is made, TurnKey conducts a brief interview with each nominee.

“Shining a spotlight on nonprofit organizations each month has certainly been a highlight of 2020,” says founder and managing director Melanie Lambert.
“From the day we launched this program, it has been our mission to help promote nonprofits across the country, help them engage with new audiences and hopefully increase their reach for volunteers, clients, and donations. In their unique ways, these organizations are changing the world, and their accomplishments deserve our recognition.”
