Butterfly Awards

Since the beginning of the Image Gently® campaign, the butterfly has been used as a symbol communicating both the soft touch and the big effect - the Butterfly Effect.

Awardees named below were honored for their exceptional impact on the success of our efforts by being named recipients of the Butterfly Award. We thank them for their service to the care of children.
