Put a little love in your heart
According to Adventures of an Awesome (Sometimes) Mother, it’s CHD (Congenital Heart Defect) Awareness Week, Feb. 7-14, 2008.
The CHD Awareness Blog has a “7 for 7 Challenge” that asks for “7 things listed for 7 days” to increase awareness of CHD. I’m late to the party, so this is a belated announcement and an early Valentine’s Day wish. Karen, who started Broken Hearts of the Big Bend Inc., a “circle of support for families affected by congenital heart disease,” sent me these links. (I’m having trouble embedding the video, so here’s the link.)
