This Friday, February 1st, marks the official start of HEART MONTH 2013!
Congenital Heart Disease Awareness week is February 11th, and Heart Day is February 14th.
To Celebrate, we'll be dressed in RED here at the Hartwell house on FEBRUARY 14, and we would love if you would join us and help raise awareness for congenital heart defects.
What do you say? Will you join us? On Valentine's Day pull those red shirts out of your closet and help celebrate Blaise, Landon, our sweet heart angel friends including Charley, and all the other kiddos who are still fighting!
If you would like, snap a picture and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org Another way to share is through Facebook. Here's what do do...
1. WEAR RED
2. Take a picture
3. Upload your photo to Facebook with one of the following captions
"Nearly one of every 100 babies is born with a CHD. I wear red in support of Blaise (or Landon or any others you choose)."
"Each year approximately 40,000 babies are born in the United States with a congenital heart defect. Thousands of them will not reach their first birthday and thousands more die before they reach adulthood. I wear red in support of Blaise (or Landon or ay others you choose)."
"Congenital heart defects are the #1 cause of birth defect related deaths. I wear red in support of Blaise (or Landon or any others you choose)."
I know that lots of people who read this site have heart kiddos of their own. Simply swap out the name and help us turn Facebook RED! Special thank to Kristen at www.charleysheart.com for this great message and idea!
4. Tag myself (Erin Sudman Hartwell) or my husband (Michael Hartwell) in your photos so that we can see them all!
HAPPY HEART MONTH, EVERYONE!
