FAMILIES ARE STRONGER @HEART
Twelve babies are born in New Zealand with a heart defect every week.
The @Heart organisation was founded in 1984 by two mothers who lost their own children to heart defects. It now provides support and a wide range of services to families with ‘‘heart children’’.
It is the only charity in New Zealand that focuses on childhood heart defects. The organisation is not affiliated to the Heart Foundation and is run solely on donations.
Go to givingatheart.org.nz or text ‘‘heart’’ to 2427 to donate now.
Set up a fundraising page for @Heart at shakeabucket.org.nz from July 29.
