#CHDAware – CHD Awareness Week 2017
There are a few key ways to help us raise awareness:
Be a part of our Crowdfunding Campaign!
It couldn’t be easier simply click here, or text CHDaware2017 to 71777 to donate or become a fundraiser yourself.
Help us reach our goal of $10,000 to get 400 of our Conquering CHD kits into the hands of those in need. These kits offer critical information and a personal connection for people with CHD of all ages and their families, through individualized care packages.
- $10 puts our canvas bag into the hands of a parent who just learned of their child’s diagnosis
- $25 allows us to provide a complete kit of educational materials and comfort items to a family whose child is in the hospital
- $50 helps us educate 5 medical providers about the needs of patients with CHD and their families
Become a fundraiser yourself – post to FB, text your friends, send an email. All the tools you need are right there on your phone! Any fundraiser who raises over $100 dollars will receive a free CCHD Conquering CHD t-shirt. That’s just 10 friends donating $10!!
You can even share this graphic to engage your friends and family:
Be a part of our Social Media Campaign!
February 7-14 is Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week. What are you going to do to spread the word about the most common birth defect?
Several of the Conquering CHD programs help educate parents, physicians, and lawmakers in turn spreading awareness all year long.
However, during the week of February 7-14, the entire community comes together to help others understand how common birth defects are, the need for research, and access to quality care.
We have created a series of social media graphics that you can use to help us reach those outside of our community. Share them, tweet them, pin them, make them your profile pic.
Make it personal – add details about your story, your experience. Include a message about the importance of research funding or encourage others to advocate.
We can do the work for you – guide them to our media pages. Ask them to like or follow us. We’ll make sure they STAY engaged! Click on an icon to find us:

During CHD Awareness Week, we will post a new graphic each day for you to share, tweet, pin…
