It’s #ConqueringCHD week! We are celebrating eight great years of hope and Conquering CHD – here are a few ways you can join in the celebration!
We are celebrating eight years of hope and changing lives this month!
You are the reason we are here. Your journeys, your stories, your triumphs and challenges, your experiences inspire everything we do as we work to conquer the most common birth defect – working to reach as many patients and families as we can.
Together, we are Conquering CHD.
Your Story Matters. Tell it!
This week, we invite you to shine a light on what conquering the most common birth defect means to you.
Use your #CHDVoice: Sharing patient and family stories is a large part of our awareness work. Your #CHDVoice matters and it should be heard! Whether you are a patient, family member, bereaved family member, or friend – we want to hear from you. Sharing your story with Conquering CHD is just one way to support the greater congenital heart disease community. Your photos and story may be used to spread awareness in educational materials, e-newsletters, social media, or programming materials.
Spread the word: Help others understand the lifelong impact of congenital heart disease and how we are conquering the most common birth defect by sharing our content!
Make it personal: Use the hashtag #ConqueringCHD, share your stories and photos of you and the others in your life who are conquering CHD every day. Tag us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @conqueringchd. Whether it’s at the doctor’s office, at school, at work, growing your family, helping others, advocating, or celebrating a birthday of your own, during our birthday week show us how you are #ConqueringCHD!
Invite others to join in the celebration: Tell your family, friends, coworkers, everyone! to follow us on social media
In honor of our birthday, we want to raise $5,000 for research-related programming – benefitting patients and families everywhere! You can support heart patients and their families by donating to conquer the most common birth defect. Every little bit helps spread hope to those affected by congenital heart disease.
YOU can help us get there! Here’s how:
Start your own fundraiser on Facebook:
Step one: Head to https://www.facebook.com/fund/conqueringchd/
Step two: Select how much money you want to raise and when your fundraiser should end
Step three: Personalize it! Give your fundraiser an eye (and heart!) catching title and tell your story about why Conquering CHD is important to you!
Step four: Create your fundraiser, share it, invite your friends and family, and start raising money to conquer the #1 most common birth defect!
Start your own fundraiser on Instagram:
Step one: Head to Instagram and click post.
Step two: Personalize it! Give your fundraiser an eye (and heart!) catching caption and photo – telling your story about why Conquering CHD is important to you!
Step three: Select “Add Fundraiser” and search for “Conquering CHD”. Enter your goal amount for how much money you want to raise.
Step four: Click share, tag your friends and family, and start raising money to conquer the #1 most common birth defect!
Donate on our website:
One of the biggest barriers to reaching more families and having an even bigger impact is the uncertainty about how much funding will come in during a given year. You can choose to make a recurring monthly gift which allows us to plan more thoughtfully and make the most of your donation. Simply head to donate.conqueringchd.org and choose the “recurring” option to maximize your gift all year long. Remember, a gift of ANY AMOUNT makes an important difference!
