Project Report | Dec 1, 2022
A single share could save a life.

By Aimee Foster | Communications Officer

Giving Tuesday took place on Tuesday of this week. Over the past four years, our Giving Tuesday fundraising campaigns have raised thousands of £s to help babies with serious heart conditions and their families. We're so grateful to everyone who has supported these appeals.

However, we know things are really tough this year.

That's why this Giving Tuesday we didn't ask for donations. We asked for our supporters to share our life-saving Think HEART message. On the day itself our message was shared over 197,000 times and it's still being shared each and every day.

Think HEART is an easy way for new parents and those who work with babies to know the five key signs a baby may have an undiagnosed heart condition.

You could help a new parent to recognise that there is something wrong with their baby's heart.

Remember – Think HEART

H = Heart rate

Is your baby’s heart rate too fast or too slow? It should normally be 100-160 beats per minute.

E = Energy

Is your baby sleepy, quiet or floppy? Are they too tired to feed, or falling asleep during feeds?

A = Appearance

Is your baby a pale, waxy, dusky, blue, purple, mottled or grey colour?

R = Respiration

Is your baby breathing too fast or too slowly? – There should normally be 40-60 breaths per minute.

T = Temperature

Is your baby persistently cold to touch – particularly their hands and feet?



Thank you for your past support of our charity and please do share this life-saving message amongst your networks. A baby is born with a serious heart condition every 2 hours. And that's why we are so truly grateful for all the support we receive week in, week out, month after month.


Thank you.
