HeartKids Australia is launching Sweetheart Day on 14 February to raise awareness of childhood heart disease and encourage donations to continue our work in providing support, advocacy, growing awareness and enabling further research into CHD.
We are calling on every Australian to be a sweetheart this Valentine’s Day and support us in some way. There are a range of activities, including Sweetheart Day merchandise, or you can buy a virtual Valentine's Day gift from our websit...e: sweetheartday.org.au (live 1 February).
HeartKids Australia’s inaugural Sweetheart Day aims to raise awareness of CHD and encourage donations to continue the national charity’s support, research, advocacy and awareness work.
“Australians spend more than $900 million on Valentine’s Day confectionary, dinners, flowers and trips. As we express love for our nearest and dearest, HeartKids Australia is asking everyone to spare a thought and a few dollars for the six babies born with a heart defect every day,” said Jann Kingston, CEO of HeartKids Australia.
