Help Your Child Make A Difference
We've made it really fun and easy for your child and family to raise donations using our cool online tool! You can help your child set-up his/her own Hoops For Heart Web page with a photo or video, and email it to friends and family to ask for their support. Donations can be made directly to your child’s Web page. This is a great family activity to do together. See how to help your child join his/her school team online and your family will be on your way to making a Web page and saving lives!
Help Other Kids
Did you know that thousands of kids are born every year with special hearts, hearts that do not work exactly right? By doing Hoops For Heart, your child can help other kids. Meet some kids we’ve helped and read their special stories.
