Royal Hospital for Women Foundation’s Heart for Her campaign a hit among patients, staff & celebrities
Heart for Her is a new digital campaign driving awareness and attracting essential funds for women’s health at the Royal Hospital for Women.
The hospital’s foundation, which is heading up the campaign, is urging the community to flock to social media to share a heart on their hand, using the hashtag #heartforher, and to donate a small amount to help others.
The campaign has built a community of people sharing stories about the women at the heart of their lives, encouraging us to demonstrate gratitude for the women we care about, celebrating friends, mothers, children, sisters, grandmothers and daughters.
Along with patients and frontline staff at The Royal, the campaign has been flooded with support by celebrities and ambassadors, including Justin Hemmes, Kellie Hush, Natasha Oakley, Adam Ashley Cooper, Emma Freedman and Rebecca Vallance.
Elise Jennings, Director of Philanthropy and Heart for Her campaign manager, Royal Hospital for Women Foundation, said: “Our doctors, nurses, midwives and hospital staff embody compassion and strength. They are showing their heart and raising their hands to say thanks. We’re calling on the community to join them through this campaign.”
“Globally, our healthcare workers have never been more appreciated. Harnessing this increased awareness and goodwill, Heart for Her is bringing people together to shine a light on women’s health and our unsung heroes saving lives and improving the health of women and babies,” Ms Jennings said.
Heart for Her will help fund vital equipment, clinical research and thought-leading programs at the Royal Hospital for Women, helping to transform women’s health, one heart at a time.
