Giving Back Program - February 2014

This month's cause: American Heart Association

Update: The numbers are in. We have raised $500 for American Heart Association!

American Heart Association

From the AHA website:

The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest, largest voluntary organization devoted to fighting cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Founded by six cardiologists in 1924, our organization now includes more than 22.5 million volunteers and supporters working tirelessly to eliminate these diseases. We fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies and provide lifesaving tools and information to save and improve lives.

Our nationwide organization includes 144 local offices and nearly 2,700 employees. We moved our national headquarters from New York to Dallas in 1975 to be more centrally located. The American Stroke Association was created as a division in 1997 to bring together the organization’s stroke-related activities.

Our Mission: Building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Our mission drives everything we do.

What We Do: To improve the lives of all Americans, we provide public health education in a variety of ways.

Ink to the People is proud to help contribute to their mission.
