Show some nonprofit love with custom heart awareness pins this February.
Heart Awareness Months comes at the perfect time of year. In the same month as Valentines day, the emphasis on red hearts gets the support of this holiday and makes spreading the word that much easier, since we are all focusing on matters of the heart anyway.
The American Heart Association takes advantage of the month of February to raise awareness and raise funds for research and education regarding heart health and heart conditions. They are “committed to fighting heart disease and strokes and so focus on specific causes designed to help people achieve a heart-healthy lifestyle.” The American Heart Association focuses on educating about and supporting research on the following conditions: Arrhythmia, Cholesterol, Congenital Heart Defects, Diabetes, Heart Attacks, Heart Failure, High Blood Pressure, Metabolic Syndrome, Obesity, Peripheral Artery Disease, and Stroke.
Each of these conditions have organizations that support it as well as months that they have dedicated to them in the effort to raise awareness. But for the month of February, the American Heart Association turns the spotlight on the heart and all the ways in which to keep it healthy as well as how to support the research and services that provide assistance to those who have heart conditions.
For the month of February as Valentine day cards are being passed around, its a great time to create lapel pins that promote heart health awareness and pass them out. Its also a great tool to use as a fundraiser that spreads awareness on the conditions of the heart and what can be done on an individual level as well as a national level regarding these conditions. Piggy backing the holiday of Valentines day is a great impetus for spreading the word and informing others on the importance of a healthy heart as well as the numerous foundations that can be found through the American Heart Foundation.
Lapel Pins can be made in bulk with a unique design to sell or give away as part of this national campaign. Go to the website now to see how to go about creating a fundraiser and then come back to The Monterey Lapel Pin Company’s site to begin the process of creating your design now!
