FEBRUARY IS NATIONAL HEART MONTH
The SADS UK team, Anne, John, Sarah and Andrea invite you to support National Heart Month during February 2022, below are some ideas as to how you can get involved and be part of National Heart Month in support of SADS UK.
♥ Protecting your Community: Raise Awareness and Funds to place a Community Public Access Defibrillator in your community to help save lives. SADS UK Defibrillator Information can be found here:
Defibrillators | SADS UK
♥ Wear it Red Day/Promoting School Safety: Encourage your workplace or school to Wear Red on Monday 14th February. Wear it Red Day now celebrates it's 10th Birthday in 2022. Bring a pound or two to raise funds for a defibrillator, or if they already have this lifesaving equipment in place – perhaps they’d like to donate funds raised to SADS UK so that others can benefit. Here is how SADS UK can support your fundraising ⇒ Fundraising & Events | SADS UK
♥ Valentine’s Day Events - Make your Valentines weekend a time to share! Hold a ‘heart’ day to raise funds for SADS UK or towards placing a defibrillator ; what better way is there to show you care. Be as creative as you like. Make hearts the theme of your party, wear red, dress up in all hearts, or even bring one, whether it’s a cake, biscuit, or knitted heart. Have fun! SADS UK can send you infromation leaflets and promotional items to support your fundraising ⇒ Fundraising & Events | SADS UK
♥ Posting a Personal Message on your social media: Tell others why you feel raising awareness of heart conditions is important. How has SADS affected you directly? Encourage your friends and family members to tell their story also. Ask people to "share" your status on their pages to increase awareness. Don’t forget to tag @SADSUK in your post.

♥ Set up a SADS UK National Heart Month Just Giving page to raise awareness and funds to be allocated SADS UK core funding to enable us to continue ourwork to help save lives. Core funding enables the charity to have the flexibility to provide our services where they are most needed, either in placing defibrillators, funding research or bereavement support and counselling for members. All you have to do is follow the simple steps on the link below your page will be set up for you. This way friends and family can donate online which makes it quick and easy for them. You can also add updates and photos to the page and write a short piece about why you are supporting SADS UK during National Heart Month.
