We have a S-U-P-E-R announcement!
Just two and a half weeks ago, we launched our #BeAHero campaign on #GivingTuesday inviting supporters to put on their capes and save the day by joining us to help make the Holidays brighter for the little heroes of the Heart Institute at Le Bonheur. After reaching our $500 goal in ONE day, we challenged our team to raise $1000 towards our $3000 goal by December 31st. In true superhero fashion, they have EXCEEDED their goal and raised over $1000 to purchase items from our wishlist for the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit.
We can't wait to see the smiles on the faces of the CVICU patients when we deliver their items during Heart Awareness Month in February. In addition to purchasing items from the wishlist, we want to be able to continue to serve dinners to the patients and families, provide support to the CVICU staff, and establish a fund to help support the parents of children recovering from open heart surgery. Together, we will make a BIG impact on the tiny heroes of the Heart Institute at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. If you haven't had the chance to give, please consider donating a gift of $25, $50, or $100 to support the Big Heart Fund.
Put on your cape, grab your mask, and #BeAHero today!
