HEART DISEASE CAN END A LIFE BEFORE IT'S EVEN BEGUN (2008)
HEART DISEASE CAN END A LIFE BEFORE IT
The Brave Heart Fund launched its annual Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) awareness campaign to draw more attention to the devastating impact of CHD on infants, children, teens and their families, raise awareness about the need for more education, support services and research funding as well as enhance standards of care for CHD patients.

A bi-lingual (English/Arabic) multi-media campaign including billboards, posters, postcards, press advertisements, TV infomercial and radio interviews ran during the month of February.

Other community awareness activities included a school outreach ‘Trivia Challenge’ whereby booklets written for school children were distributed to students grades 6, 7 and 8 by the Brave Heart Fund during an oral presentation and film screening about CHD.

In addition, local fashion and jewelry designers Maria Arida and Rola Ali-Ahmad contributed to the campaign with their respective designs of trendy vinyl “LOVE” pouches and “PEACE in the HEART’ pendants, bracelets and key chains which were sold to benefit the Brave Heart Fund.
