During the month of November, Help-A-Heart is 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!
Thank you to Samantha Bender, Founder of Wells Cooperative & heart mom to Bodie, for writing up this blog post about what her business is doing to give back to organizations that mean something to them.
I launched Wells Cooperative after my fourth son was born. Bodie was born with Down syndrome and we later found out he also has a heart condition. Becoming a special needs mama changed me on the best ways. Wells was launched as a passion project with a mission. We carry locally made and fair trade jewelry and accessories that give back. We partnered With Help-A-Heart to create a collection inspired by kiddos who have faced big things. We carry locally made and fair trade jewelry and accessories that give back. I met Emily years ago at MOPS and have followed her journey with her family. After noticing all of the good Help-A-heart was doing, I reached out to see if we could collaborate. We partnered with a number of families who have worked with Help-A-Heart and created a whole line of custom pieces that give back to this amazing organization.
