Come and Help these Hounds salute their Heart Heroes!
It’s National Heart Month again, and you know what that means! Yes, those Helpful Hounds have returned to help me raise funds and awareness for kids with congenital heart disease!!
I do it for My Heart Heroes:
I am raising money in honor of two amazing families, each with a very special little girl affected by CHD. Both of these beautiful girls benefit greatly from all the wonderful work being done at Boston Children’s Hospital. These families-and their incredible kids-teach me about strength, and perseverance every day! They face adversity with courage, and enjoy life like we all should. They are real life superheroes in my eyes, and they continuously inspire me.
As such, I wanted to do something special for them, and for all the kids battling CHD.
Cue the hounds?!
Yes, i said Hounds! i used my two most precious commodities, my beagles; as they are what i hold closest to my heart! With a little help and a ton of support from our incredible friends at #GBU, i put these calendars together. I’m selling them to help raise funds and awareness for all the tiny warriors fighting this big battle.
This year’s heroic theme is especially poignant, as it is made in the honor of our inspiring heart heroes.
I know there is nothing I can do that will physically make these kids better, but in selling these calendars I can at least spread the word about how amazing and special they are! And in purchasing one, and hanging it on your wall, you can give yourself a visual reminder of how these courageous kids approach every day; with bravery , with love, and with joy! In this way, these kids just may end up making all of us better!
I mean, they are superheroes after all!
What are we supporting?
Your contribution will go to the Heart Fund at Boston Children’s Hospital.
Each year, roughly 40,000 American children are born with a congenital heart defect. Although the rate of CHDs has not decreased over time, more children born with these abnormalities are surviving to adulthood because of new innovations, and groundbreaking discoveries!.
The Heart Fund supports Boston Children's groundbreaking advancements in the diagnosis, treatment and cure of heart conditions, which will help these courageous kiddos now, and in the future!
Recently named #1 in Cardiology and Heart Surgery by the U.S.News & World Report, BCH stands alone in its dedication to achieve the best possible outcome for every chikd it treats.
