During the month of November, Help-A-Heart will be putting the spotlight on various ways people support and donate to our organization throughout the year. Obviously, attending one of our annual fundraisers–the Celebration of Life Dinner & Silent Auction in June & the Superhero Heart Run in October–are two big ways you can further our cause! We also receive several cash donations online through our website or mailed to us throughout the year. However, we are humbled & encouraged by the unique ways some of our heart families & their friends choose to support us & wanted to make sure they know how much we appreciate these special gestures. We’ll be posting a few ideas a week as a part of our 30 Days of Thanks!
Selah Graber (daughter of Co-founder, Emily Graber) & her two buddies, Maddux Hudnut & Quintin DeVoe have birthdays within 2 weeks of each other so like to do a bigger joint party every year. They celebrate their special day right after the Christmas season so don’t feel like they need more presents or things to play with. These three decided that they wanted to support Help-A-Heart by having their friends bring Lego sets to be given to kids in the hospital fighting congenital heart disease. Instead of bringing gifts, all of their friends showered them with Lego sets that they passed along to Help-A-Heart! Thanks to Selah, Maddux & Quintin for their generosity & for blessing our heart warriors!
