Support Heart Families

Where do the donations go?

The money donated to the Mending Little Hearts Fund goes directly to addressing the unmet needs of children living with heart conditions from all across Saskatchewan.

Your contributions will improve the health, wellbeing and survival of these children by:

  • Allowing a child and family to attend the highly successful CHAMPS Camp
  • Providing additional equipment for diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of their conditions
  • Establishing educational resources for these children and their families
  • Developing support services for these families at the time of diagnosis and procedures

Other ways to show support

Teddy Bear Drive – July 11-15, 2022

We are on a mission to collect 100 teddy bears to provide to children from Saskatchewan who will be travelling out of province for heart surgery!

This iniative is in partnership with the “I ❤️  Bear Hugs” project created by Siena, a 10 year old heart hero. Her goal is to ensure that every child who travels for heart surgery is not alone, and gets extra hugs from their own special bear – just like she did 9 years ago.

How does it work?

We are asking the public to buy a teddy bear of their choice and donate it to our cause. Drop off will be at the University of Saskatchewan Physical Activity Complex (87 Campus Dr, Saskatoon) during the week of July 11-15.

Please contact Dana (306) 371-8833 or email saskchampscamp@gmail.com to set up a drop off time!

Thank you to the Western Canadian Children’s Heart Network for supporting this project.

Seren Co. Jewelry 

Seren Co. Jewelry is the beautiful work of a mom named Sherri, whose son Weston is a heart hero. Making these bracelets as an outlet to escape the stress of her son’s surgery lead to selling them with 100% of the profits going to the Mending Little Hearts Fund.

All designs are created with love and each piece brings feelings of beauty, peace, and contribution. Thank you so much for your support.

To date, Seren Co. Jewelry has raised over $23 000 for the Mending Little Hearts Fund!! Read more about this amazing contribution HERE.
