February is World Heart Month and to celebrate each year we run our ROCK RED FRIDAY campaign.
#RockRedFriday is back for 2022 and we would love for you to take part with your family for a bit of fun on a Friday afternoon with a #RockRedKitchenDisco.
Why not join us on Friday 11th February by wearing red and having a boogie in your kitchen – all with the aim of raising vital awareness of congenital heart disease (CHD), Northern Ireland’s most common birth defect.
If you are quick, we even have a fun pack to help create your disco! (limited availability) so please email [email protected] to claim a disco pack.
The aim of this event is to have a bit of fun with the family to kick off half term and in doing so help us raise awareness by sharing your moves on social media. You can even play our very own #RockRedKicthenDisco playlist on Spotify!
So on Friday 11th February, please wear something red to highlight CHD in children and then show us your moves by sharing your #RockRedFriday Kitchen Disco videos, reels and photos on your social media platforms using the following wording and hashtags:
“Today is #RockRedFriday and to celebrate our amazing heart warriors we are joining Children’s Heartbeat Trust’s #RockRedKitchenDisco. Helping to raise awareness of Congenitial Heart Disease in Children.” #CHDAware
Anyone can get involved including youth clubs, schools and organisations and if dancing isn’t your thing, you can still wear red to raise awareness of CHD and post your photos to social media.
Anything you can do to support us will be greatly appreciated.
If you wish to support our services further, you can ask family, friends and work colleagues to also wear red and make a donation to the charity.
Why not add a donate button to your facebook page when posting about #RockRedFriday or create a Rock Red Facebook Fundraiser?
If you’d like to turn your Rock Red event into a fundraiser please contact Lynn for more information and resources via [email protected]
Any funds raised will enable us to provide practical and emotional support to local children and young people with congenital heart disease, like Heart Mum Julie explains:
“Telling us that we weren’t alone, no matter what happened in our journey you would be there to help. With so much to worry about, that reassurance meant the world to us!” Heart Mum Julie Marley.
