You Make A Difference
Have you hugged your children today? Have you taken the time to be thankful for what you and your loved ones share?
We at saving tiny hearts cannot tell you how much we appreciate all that you have done these past 11 years. you have made such an important difference in the lives of children born with congenital heart defects, the #1 birth defect, and we truly cannot thank you enough. Last year, you helped us not only at our gala but throughout the year to raise critical funds and once again make history as we were able to fund for the first time 6 more revolutionary research projects for 2016. This could only have been accomplished through your overwhelming generosity.
As we approach the holiday season and get together with our friends and families to celebrate and bring in the new year, take time to applaud what you have accomplished and the difference you have made to help save countless tiny hearts…children whose lives depend on our help now…as their greatest hope. Remember, we have no paid employees and every dollar we raise goes to support lifesaving research.
Please dig deep into your hearts and know that with your generous contribution, you are making a tremendous difference…
