A Day for Hearts

Filed under: Advocacy, Blogging — by Glenda at 1:41 pm on Thursday, February 14, 2008

Valentine’s Day: a day for expressing matters of the heart to those who you love and cherish. Sadly, many are suffering from a broken heart. Literally.

Eight in every 1000 babies born alive have some form of congenital heart defect – a killer claiming thousands of infants and children worldwide every year.

My twitter friend Dr. Mani has made it his life’s mission to repair as many of these broken hearts as he can. Dr. Mani Sivasubramanian is a heart surgeon using his Internet marketing business to fund heart surgery for under-privileged children in India.

In conjunction with The Dr.Mani Children Heart Foundation
February 14th is A Day for Hearts: Congenital Heart Defects Awareness
Day
– a global effort to increase awareness about this deadly group of diseases. See how you can hellp spread the word. Together we can do this.

And, today, while loving your loved ones, listen to their hearts. Truly listen. If you hear a healthy, beautiful beat, be thankful.

Happy Valentine’s Day from me to you.

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a cafe mocha. Thanks kindly.
