About Sweetheart Day

2-hi-resSweetheart Day is held annually on February 14th to raise funds towards fighting childhood heart disease. All proceeds go towards HeartKids, a national organisation that focuses on funding vital medical research as well as improving the lives of Aussie kids with childhood heart disease.

It’s a fact that 8 babies are born with a heart defect every day, yet not enough people in Australia are aware of this.

So this year, we’re asking our Sweetheart Supporters to help spread the word by Registering for Sweetheart Day today!

Also, with help from our friends at Samsung, all registrants will automatically go into the running to win a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and VR Gear Pack!* worth $993 (Proudly donated by our friends at Samsung) 🙂
