Its plunge time again! In the pool with me this year will be Jarrod, Lauren, David, Emma, Summer and Steve. Some of these lovely humans took part last year and are brave enough to do it again, some are first timers. So first of all, big thanks to them! And bigger thanks to you for donating to this incredible foundation!
Heart Kids NZ help supports kids all across the country born with heart defects, the highest occurring serious birth defect in New Zealand. They provide emotional and financial support to families when they are going through times nobody should be put through.
As our name suggests, we are taking part in this icy challenge for the very special Andre Svensson. In Andre’s 4 years of life he has 6 surgeries, the first of which was when he was only 3 days old! Heart Kids NZ has helped and supported his beautiful little family every step of the way. Andre may not be my blood but I love him as though he is and I am eternally greatful for what this foundation has done for him and his family.
Please help us help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. Every dollar counts! Please share our page with your family and friends while your here. The more people that know about Heart Kids NZ, the more they can do to help others like Andre!
Here are just a few things Heart Kids NZ will do with some of your generous donation
• $10.00 can provide a meal for a parent as they sit bedside with their child in Hospital.
• $25.00 can provide a family with a visit from a Heart Kids Family Support staff member.
• $50.00 donation can provide a family with food or petrol vouchers while they are supporting their child in Hospital.
• $70.00 will cover the cost of a Medic Alert Bracelet for a heart kid
As a reward for your generosity you are invited to come and watch our team sit in a pool of ice water for 360 seconds. Worth it right?! We hope to see you there and thank you again!
