Spread the word!

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

We need to get the word out there so that people know that CHD is a cause worth supporting. And by supporting Sweetheart Day 2017, you will be adding your voice to these heart kids, and spreading the word that 8 babies a day, is #8toomany.

How can I get involved?

1. Register yourself*:

  • Host an event at work with colleagues (or at home with family and friends) on Tuesday, February 14th and have a fun-filled day getting together sharing a cuppa and cakes, or even playing games – check out our fundraising page to help you make your event memorable!
  • Show your support by getting your family and friends to sponsor your event by donating whatever they can to help fight childhood heart disease!
  • Make sure you bring some blue-inspired sweetheart cakes to share (or sell)
  • Finally, spread the word by sharing CHD facts to get the message out there, by getting together with your attendees and taking a pic of everyone in a heart shape, and hash tagging #8toomany, #sweetheartday, #heartkids to spread CHD awareness!
