CHD Awareness Information and Suggestions
CONGENITAL HEART DEFECT AWARENESS MONTH - FEBRUARY 2016
SHARE YOUR HEART-CHILD'S STORY
Our Stories of Hope page receives thousands of hits a day and that's because many parents looking for hope and support receive it through your stories. In honor of CHD Awareness 2016, we're asking members to share their heart-child's story with us to add to our website! Share your story by contacting us today!
USE OUR PR TOOLKIT TO BRING AWARENESS
Looking to bring awareness by contacting the media? Use our PR Toolkit
to help in getting your story out there. Remember, once your story has been published, share your accomplishment with us
Awareness month is February but everyone is encouraged to bring awareness year round!
ADDITIONAL CHD AWARENESS SUGGESTIONS AND TOOLS
For the following flyers, please open and print from using Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. DO NOT use Mozilla Firefox.
We have flyers and promotional items to help you. Feel free to print off our flyer for your pediatric cardiologists office, or to just hand out to friends, family and co-workers. For fundraisers, we have our school Loose Change Fundraiser and our Jeans dress down fundraiser for work. For a simple display, use our CHD Awareness Flyer or our CHD Fact Sheet or contact us and we'll send you brochures.
There's no better way of spreading awareness than with our on-the-go products. Bring awareness with our child and adult Wristbands, Ribbon Magnets and Window clings for the car, our CHD Survivor Photo Calendar to hang up anywhere, Lapel Pins and of course our CHD Survivor T-Shirts. All of these (and more) are available for purchase through our online store
Awareness Month can be whatever you'd like it to be! Do whatever works for you. The above suggestions are just a few that members have done and have been successful. Some members have written a Letter to the Editor to their local newspaper about their heart child and experience.
Whatever you do, let us know and share it with us! If you take photos of your event, share them with us as well!
