The Sweetheart Day Photo Challenge
Our Sweetheart Day Photo Challenge is one of the most popular ways to get involved and help raise awareness of congenital/childhood heart disease and the impact on the lives of those affected.
It is such a personal, fun and simple way to show your heart this February.
All you need to do is use the list as inspiration for a daily photo, you can use your phone or your fancy camera, it is not about taking the best picture, it is all about community. There is no pressure to share a photo every single day, you may want to choose the days that suit you or you are welcome to share a photo every day.
You can share your photos on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, or everywhere! The more photos the better!
Simply add the hashtags into the caption when sharing your photos so that we can find them #8toomany and #sweetheartday
You can also tag HeartKids to help us find you:
