CHD Awareness Week February 7- 14

CHD = Congenital Heart Defect

My oldest daughter, from the second set of kids, was born with a Congenital Heart Defect. She was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot and was lucky enough to only have to have one operation to repair her heart; where as other people/ kids are not so lucky.

I read a blog post that was shared by another 'Heart Mom' and all I could think of was 'THIS IS AN AWESOME IDEA!'. So with that said, I am going to share the post with you and hope that you share it and I encourage you to participate.

If you participate not only will you spread CHD Awareness but you will also put a smile on someone's face.

Some ideas-

  • Bake cookies for the postman
  • Bake the school office staff some pink/ red cupcakes
  • Rake your neighbors leaves
  • Offer to babysit and give a mom/dad a night out
Simple ideas and thoughtful ideas, but make sure to attach a tag that explains why you are doing a good deed and encourage them to pay it forward in honor of CHD Awareness. 

Let me know if you decide to play, but if you don't play, please share this post so others can be aware.
