Open Your Heart
Imagine a world without heart disease or stroke. Many say this is unattainable, considering heart disease kills more Americans than the next four leading causes of death combined. But this vision — for a world free of heart disease and stroke — drives the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association. Open Your Heart gives donors the opportunity to make a direct impact on the American Heart Association’s mission by making a personal 100% philanthropic gift.
Your generosity enables the American Heart Association to fund groundbreaking research, develop guidelines to improve patient care and help people lower their risk factors for heart disease and stroke. As long as heart disease continues to be the nation’s No. 1 cause of death, the importance of our work will only grow. Please consider making a gift to Open Your Heart, where $0.90 of every dollar raised supports research and education for women and heart disease.
If you would like to be part of the Open Your Heart committee or would like more information, please contact Ashley Lindsay at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-441-4217.
