Today we are sharing a cause close to many peoples hearts. Bloggers can have a huge impact on social media as we know and Heart Research UK would love you to get behind their latest campaign.
Heart Research UK are aiming we to increase funding through innovative yet ethical means in order to support more research projects resulting in fewer people experiencing the devastating effects of heart disease.
So this year they are hosting Sing for your Heart – a national digital fundraising campaign, where people will be asked to ‘Sing, Donate and Nominate’. Much like the ice bucket challenge anyone can be involved as long as they have a smart phone and are willing to film themselves (it takes 2 minutes, can be done anywhere in the world and doesn’t matter whether you can sing or not).
Below is the video we will be using to launch the campaign on 1 December which features Jaxon (a young heart patient from Bradford) and his family which demonstrates why research is so important:
Heart Research UK would love you and your family to have some fun with this and join the likes of Alesha Dixon, Beverley Knight and Aston Merrygold to name but a few who are supporting the campaign and are currently putting together their videos.
All you need to do is film yourselves like this:
Send it to us for branding (if possible) email@example.com
Post out from your social media account on and after launch date of 1 December
The idea is to have as many videos in the bag which can create a real buzz and get the general public involved and donating.
As well as raising funds to pay for research with this campaign, we’re trying to demonstrate that heart disease does not discriminate, it doesn’t care if you’re a singer, comedian, actor, presenter, every day joe/joan, cardiovascular disease is still the UK’s biggest single killer.
