How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Your $10 donation provides training for 1 Pri 5 student to take part in the BP Initiative @ Schools, a programme that aims to raise awareness on the importance of having good blood pressure readings.
Your $30 donation funds 1 session of highly subsidised cardiac rehabilitation, which is currently 85% subsidised by SHF.
Your $50 donation provides transport allowance for 1 needy heart patient who might require frequent and urgent visits to the hospital for medical treatment and emergency relief.
Your $120 donation provides CPR + AED training (blended learning) for 2 pax, increasing the pool of individuals who are trained to respond to cardiac arrests cases and thus improving survival rates.
Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM
Need a reason to do charity? You can join me in my birthday fundraising campaign to raise funds for Singapore Heart Foundation (SHF - http://www.myheart.org.sg/) and their beneficiaries! Instead of spending your money on birthday cakes and presents, you can celebrate my birthday by making use of your money more meaningfully.
I won't be accepting anything but well wishes for my birthday so if you intend to give me something you can make a donation to SHF, or any other charity. I chose SHF as I made a promise to their volunteers earlier this year to help.
Singapore Heart Foundation helps recovering heart patients and individuals at risk of developing heart disease to manage their conditions and also supports cardiovascular research initiatives. If you are interested, do check out their programmes (http://myheart.org.sg/our-programmes/cardiac-rehabilitation-and-heart-wellness/4/6#) and study their financial reports (http://www.myheart.org.sg/media/annual--financial-reports/20) to make an informed decision.
If you are uncomfortable with donating through this channel, you may also do so through their various donation programmes (http://www.myheart.org.sg/giving-and-helping/donors/5/10) Any amount counts! =)
Thanks for reading through!
About The Charity
The death toll from COVID-19 continues to rise at an alarming rate, and early studies have confirmed that those who suffer from heart disease and diabetes appear to be more vulnerable in becoming severely ill with the virus. This reinforces the importance of taking care of one's heart health. As you self-isolate and spend more time at home, we urge you to take care of your heart health. At the same time, we appeal to your generosity and hope that you can support by donating.
The Singapore Heart Foundation (SHF) is a social service agency at the forefront of the battle against heart diseases in Singapore.
Since its inception in 1970, SHF is constantly promoting good heart health so as to prevent cardiovascular disease later in life, via life-saving & community outreach programmes. At the same time, the Foundation also provides financial assistance to needy heart patients through the Heart Support Fund.
The funds raised are used by SHF for its operations and life-saving programmes aimed at promoting preventive measures against heart disease to the public; supporting community-based research aimed at gaining a better understanding of the landscape of heart disease in Singapore; getting more people trained in CPR+AED; providing rehabilitative and preventive care for recovering heart patients and at-risk individuals; as well as offering financial assistance to needy heart patients for emergency relief and treatment.
