WOW! Here is a big “THANK YOU” to all of you, our supporters in this campaign! Whether you have donated money or promoted this project via email and social media, or both, YOU have been integral to the success we have had so far.
In the past week, we have raised OVER $2,000 with our total donations standing at $4,286. We will use this money to purchase over 140 home-based CPR training kits for survivors of cardiac arrest! We hope to do more, though. We still need a push to complete this project to our initial goal of $5,000. That level will ensure that EVERY cardiac arrest survivor that we come into contact with be given a CPR kit.
The bystander CPR rates in this country and this region lag behind those of other developed nations. We know that each kit we have given out trains at least 1-2 new individuals in what to do in the setting of witnessing a cardiac arrest. The more people who know CPR, the bigger the safety net is for everyone!
