As we move toward the close of 2021 with most communities and industries reopened, we are all still adjusting to a “New Normal” and the countless changes imposed in the last couple years. One thing that has not changed however is ForHearts Worldwide’s dedication to the mission of saving lives by providing implantable cardiovascular devices and care for those in need. The annual tradition of #GivingTuesday is the perfect opportunity to contribute, and we need your help more than ever to keep saving hearts worldwide!
You CAN Make a Difference
With the growing number of global concerns, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and even paralyzed when considering if or how you can make a difference in today’s world. Fortunately, the act of giving, as with a donation of resources, is one of the oldest and most powerful acts possible that can effect great change. It was Mother Theresa that said, “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” Your monthly, annual, or GivingTuesday contribution to the mission of ForHearts Worldwide will profoundly impact not only the lives of our many pacemaker recipients, but also of those they love and touch.
Multiply Your Generosity
Our global network of generous and passionate physicians, medical facilities, industry donors and other volunteers provide the life-saving pacemaker implant procedure that could cost upwards of $60,000 in the US for FREE to ForHearts Worldwide patients. This means that the cost to ForHearts Worldwide for each life-saving procedure is only $585. Your contribution allows ForHearts Worldwide to manage our global Heart Centers ensuring the safety and longevity of both our patients and our program. In essence your GivingTuesday contributions as they relate to our life saving mission are worth over 100 times more with ForHearts Worldwide, multiplying the power of your gifts.
The Reason for the Season
So many of us take for granted the easy and steady beats of our hearts. But for 1-3 million people around the world every year, life could be cut short by the inability of their heart to properly beat. Most of the time, the conditions leading to this are easily managed with a pacemaker. Over the last 37 years, ForHearts Worldwide has helped provide this life-saving intervention and follow up care to thousands of needy people around the world. As we move into another holiday season, there is no better way to express gratitude for your health, and the health of those you love, than by providing the same peace of mind to others through your GivingTuesday gifts to ForHearts Worldwide.
Holding Hearts in Your Hands
ForHearts Worldwide has spent nearly four decades developing a global network of people committed to donating and contributing the time, facilities, equipment, expertise and compassion needed to save the lives of the less fortunate around the world. Our purpose and mission have provided hope and a future to more than 16,000 people and their families. Still, the futures of so many more are unknown, and are in your hands. We are so thankful for your generous GivingTuesday contribution for the continuation of this important work!
