Whole Hearts Foundation - Matt Hammitt of Sanctus Real


With the birth of his baby boy Bowen this past year, Matt Hammitt of Sanctus Real has a whole new mission in life. To help families that have loved ones with similar heart conditions that Bowen has - a serious and rare congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS).

Matt and his wife Sarah have created the Whole Hearts Foundation, which is in the running for a $50,000 grant from Pepsi. You can help by voiting daily at the links provided on this page. Let's rally behind Bowen and families that will benefit from this grant.

YOU CAN VOTE EVERY DAY this month, and here’s how!

1. Go to www.refresheverything.com/wholehearts and click “Vote for this idea” once a day. You can also get there by clicking on the banner in the sidebar of Bowensheart.com.

2. Text 107706 to 73774 once a day. (standards rates apply, but there is no extra charge)

3. Look for “Power Votes” on Pepsi products and go back to the Whole Hearts Foundation voting page to cash them in.

4. Utilize the social networking tools/buttons at the voting page which can help you tweet about it, post the info on your Facebook page and even embed the voting widget on your site or page.

5. Spread the word!

I think it is always wonderful to support organizations that help people in need.  And if we all vote, it would be a great way to help the Whole Hearts Foundation.  I work with a group of about 50 children who are blind.  Last month we made 45 fleece blankets for ill newborns.  Next month we are making up toiletry care packages for the service men and women overseas.  It just goes to show that ANYONE can do something to make the world a better place!

I always feel good when someone helps a charity. but since I dont have money I volunteer at a nursing home.

Give as freely as you have been given.

Here in Milwaukee there is a similar program at Children's hospital called Wings of Angels. Their website is http://thewingsofangels.org/ . It's too bad some of these families don't get together & do these programs nationwide, as they all have something in common - children with congenital heart defects! Wings of Angels was started by a couple at Hales Corners Lutheran Church who lost a daughter to a heart problem. God bless everyone who helps these families!
