Sweetheart Day is HeartKids' annual flagship campaign. It is also widely recognised as International Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Month. The campaign is focused on Valentine’s Day (February 14), or for our community, International Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day.
Throughout February, HeartKids and CHD families will drive awareness about CHD and raise much-needed funds.
Our focus is to expand our support for families and grow our services through our 1800 Helpline, parents education programs, family financial assistance, and in-hospital support initiatives, including our unique heart beads program.
HeartKids goal in 2021 is to increase access to our support services and programs across Australia, with a particular focus on those living in isolated communities.
HeartKids is Australia's only national charity dedicated to supporting those impacted by CHD and is a critical lifeline for thousands of Australian families. Funds raised from Sweetheart Day will go towards our support services and programs nationwide.
