As well as being Valentines Day February 14th is also International Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) Day, in 2021 Valentine's Day falls on the weekend. Despite this we still want want schools, pre-schools and businesses to get behind Little Heart Day and take part in all the fun, so we have moved the event date to Friday 12th February so everyone can still take part. 2020 saw our biggest turn out of participants yet and we want to smash that total in 2021!
Remember a Little Heart Day can be as big or small as you would like - you can have a mufti day at your school or in the office encourage people to dress in red or heart themed clothes, you could have a bake sale and sell heart shaped cookies, the possibilities are endless really! It is the day we recognise the 1 in every 100 children who are born with broken hearts around the world. All funds raised help support children, like our poster girl Sapphire-Rose (pictured above), who are born with broken hearts.
