We can’t do this alone. We rely on the generosity and creativity of the community. There are plenty of ways that we can work together to check hearts and save lives. We’ve listed a few ideas below! Of course, you can always make a donation or volunteer.
Advocate for the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act
This law that began in Pennsylvania is proving to be a very effective tool for raising awareness. With the stroke of a pen, all parents, students and coaches in a state must learn about the risk and warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest. Will you join our effort and help us pass the law in your state? To find out more, click here.
Apply for Fellowship
We have two established scholarships. College students interested in PR/Marketing are encouraged to apply for the Blanch Goffman Scholarship. This position runs for a school year and requires at least 10 hours per week. Cardiologist are encouraged to apply for the Cardiac Fellowship. This individual will manage four local heart screenings and become an expert in community based youth heart screenings.
Become a High School Student Ambassador
The Simon’s Heart Ambassador Program was designed by students for students. Raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest at your high school and participate in a variety of events.
Get a Company Match
Does your company match funds? Does it allow you to allocate part of your salary to a United Way Campaign (Simon’s Heart #45799). Will it make a donation to a nonprofit in exchange for your volunteer hours? If you have any questions about these options, please contact us.
We’re selling really cool stuff right now at our online store. You can’t get these things anywhere else! You can also shop for anything at Amazon. Check out the Amazon Smiles program where proceeds from your purchase benefit Simon’s Heart.
Host a Heart Screening
Want to bring Simon’s Heart to your school? Whether you’re a health professional, an educator, or a student, Simon’s Heart can work with you to host a screening. Fill out this form to get started.
Plan a Community Service (Mitzvah) Project
Kids helping kids – there is something amazing about that concept. Your child can help plan a screening, create a project, or host a fundraiser for Simon’s Heart. Our students are pretty creative: a chess tournament, designing jewelry for sale, working with Whole Foods, etc. Please contact us with your questions and ideas.
Can’t decide? Then just shoot us a message and we’ll figure it out together.
