If you’re reading this, you probably care about making a difference in your community. How do we know? Well, as someone interested in the Halle Heart Children’s Museum, we imagine you understand the importance of educating kids about how to live a heart-healthy lifestyle. The museum does this through school field trips and public hours, during which over 40,000 visitors a year learn not only about the heart and cardiovascular system, but how to keep them healthy through diet, exercise, and not smoking.
Beyond visiting the HHCM, did you know there’s even more you can do to support the American Heart Association’s mission? To help us create a better future for Arizona’s kids, we’d love your participation in a unique statewide giving campaign: Arizona Gives Day.
We’ve been posting quite a bit about Arizona Gives Day on social media, but perhaps you’ve been asking yourself, “What exactly is it? And what does it matter to me?”
Arizona Gives Day is a collaboration between the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and the Arizona Grantmakers Forum. A one-day push for charitable giving to Arizona nonprofits, it has garnered over $10.1 million in donations since its inception in 2013. Nonprofits account for over 8% of our gross state product and provide 325,000 jobs, making them a major source of economic impact throughout Arizona. Helping the public focus on these organizations for a single day raises awareness about their wonderful impact in our community.
Though Arizona Gives Day takes place for just 24 hours, you can donate any time. Visit https://www.azgives.org/hhcm to make your donation to the Halle Heart Children’s Museum on Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018–or whenever you like, year-round! We thank you in advance for partnering with us. Your generosity truly is the lifeblood of our museum.
