Every year in September, World Heart Day takes place, sweeping the globe as a mission to ensure heart health equality for everyone. It also helps raise awareness that heart disease is the number one killer – taking nearly 18 million lives each year.
Heartbeat International is holding a Facebook fundraiser from September 15th to September 29th, collecting donations to benefit our global pacemaker program.
Engaging and educational, the campaign will highlight facts about heart health, prevention of cardiac disease, and will feature “healthy heart challenges” along the way.

Founded in 2000 as an initiative of the World Heart Federation, it is the world’s biggest platform for raising awareness about cardiovascular disease. It pledges that:
World Heart Day gives people the power to be heart healthy
Together, we can help people live longer, better, healthier lives
Good heart health is good for my heart, for your heart, for all our hearts
The burden of cardiovascular disease can be reduced. But we must all act now.
Please help us save a life and donate today. You have the power to make a difference.
