Each day 6 babies are born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) in Australia. And, each week four young Australians will die from this tragic disease.

This year, instead of spending a fortune on material gifts for your loved ones on Valentines Day buy a gift with a conscience! Donate your chocolate budget to HeartKids Qld and help support children and their families in their struggle, and help find a cure for CHD.

You will receive a beautiful card to give to your beloved, explaining your decision to give the gift of life. For these kids, there is no better way to say ‘I love you’.

A $10 donation will provide an evening meal for a parent while their HeartKid is in hospital. A $25 donation will supply the family of a regional HeartKid with a care bag of essentials for emergencies. A $40 donation will supply a HeartKid with a play therapy tool kit providing distraction techniques and pain management strategies for a HeartKid and their parent.

Have a Heart this Valentine’s Day. Donate to HeartKids Qld and receive a card for
your Valentine.
