BENEFITING: HARBORING HEARTS
HOURS PLEDGED: 12
Yes, February is often touted as the month of love. It is also, however, American Heart Month (not, as you might have thought from my chosen picture, Giant Heart-Shaped Oreo Cookie Month)! In honor of this month, and all of the work that is being done to fight America's leading cause of death, I'm raising money for Harboring Hearts (http://www.harboringhearts.org/). They're a great nonprofit whose mission is to support heart patients and their families during the critical time of treatment. Through housing assistance, emergency funds, hospital events and other resources, Harboring Hearts eases the financial and emotional burden place on patients and caregivers.
I have served on their Board for the last two years, and can not think of a more wonderful organization to which to donate my time or money. Please consider donating! Every little bit - even $25 - helps.
