Favorite Charity: Alenna's Heart 2 Heart
My niece started it in conjunction with St. Luke's Heart Institute. Before she died of CHF (congestive heart failure), we held yearly fundraisers in her church hall (Our Saviour Lutheran in Kansas City, KS).
My niece started it to benefit heart transplant patients and their families. She herself was working toward getting on the transplant list because of her CHF. She and I were there weekly for her infusions and had seen the hardships of transplant patients and their families, many who had to travel from all over a 4 state area. She always sought ways to help.
I have a section in my Etsy shop that is dedicated to Alenna's Heart 2 Heart and I donate 25% of the sales to her charity.
