Imagine a world without heart disease or stroke. Heart disease strikes someone in the U.S. every 42 seconds. And chances are, you know someone – a friend or family member – who has been among them. Your support has the power to help us reduce that number. Our vision of a world free of heart disease and stroke drives the critical, life-saving mission of the American Heart Association.
Open Your Heart gives supporters and champions of our mission the opportunity to make a personal gift from the heart and directly impact on the lives of those affected by heart disease and stroke. The families, the survivors, and those we've lost. When you donate to the American Heart Association, you are joining us in the fight against our nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers – heart disease and stroke.
The AHA uses revenues from local and National Go Red For Women activities to support awareness, research, education and community programs to benefit women. These funds allow us to help women by offering educational programs, advancing women’s understanding about their risk for heart disease and providing tools and motivation to help women reduce their risk to protect their health. Funds raised by Go Red For Women activities also support research to discover scientific knowledge about heart health. We turn this science into materials and tools that healthcare providers and decision-makers can use to help women.
Please consider opening your heart and making a donation. Together, we can CHANGE lives & SAVE lives. Click here to make your gift & change a life today.
