Jane: I recently sold a “Boo Boo Heart” and the buyer mentioned that she was giving it as a gift to her 2 year old niece that recently had a pacemaker put in. The story just broke my heart (especially since my niece that inspired my toys is also 2 years old) and I decided that from now on, I will be donating $5 with every purchase of the Boo Boo Heart in the buyer’s name to the Children’s Heart Foundation. I just thought that I’d start to get the word out so we can get closer to finding a cure and raise awareness (to be honest, I didn’t even really know or think about the cause until I heard her story).
I want to thank Jane for bringing me this story and to that wonderful person who has inspired her to donate $5 with every purchase of her Boo Boo Heart to the Children’s Heart Foundation.
A SPECIAL TREAT!!!
There are so many charities that are unheard of and I often wonder how I went without hearing about them. Leave me a comment about a charity or foundation that you would like to share with us and our readers (preferably an unheard charity or foundation). On March 10, 2010, Random.org will choose a random comment and I will purchase a Boo Boo Heart for you. To make this clear: I will purchase the plushie for the selected comment, your name will be given to Jane (so that the $5 donation going to the Children’s Heart Foundation is attached with your name), and finally, the Boo Boo Heart will be sent to you.
Only 2 Rules:
1. Please leave the name of the charity or foundation along with a link.
2. 1 entry per person.
Please help us spread the word about this “Heart with a Cause” by doing what you do on a daily basis:
