phil&teds were approached by an awesome person with a mission in mind! “Heroic Heart Kids” Charity Auction was started on Facebook to raise as much money as poss for Heart Kids SA!
Elissa Norman started her hobby as a photographer not too long ago, she then did a photoshoot for a lovely lady and her 2 year old daughter. She told us here at phil&teds: “I knew Hannah was special from the moment Sarah contacted me. Hannah suffers from Congenital Heart Disease and in her short 2 years has already had 2 open heart surgeries, 1 closed heart surgery and 6 months in hospital. The day I took Hannah’s photos I learned more about CHD and about ‘Heart Kids’ and how they provide these families so much support as well as travel and accommodation needs for when the children travel for surgery. They are not government funded either and with 1 in 100 babies being born with CHD and it being the most common birth abnormality there is never ending amounts of funds needed to be able to help as many families as possible. With this in mind I really wanted to do my part to help, so I have created an ‘online auction’ on facebook. “
As soon as Elissa shared this with us we wanted to help out too! Through our “buggies for good” programme we were able to offer a red sport and doubles kit to be auctioned off! The lucky winner Sharna bid $555 – a truly awesome way to help Heart Kids SA! Elissa worked ever so hard to achieve such a successful auction, raising a whopping ALL funds raised from this auction have now been donated to Heart Kids SA and Elissa may make this a regular event! Watch this space…
phil&teds were so glad to help out, & a big bloomin’ bravo to Elissa and all those who have supported her auction, parted with money and donated prizes!!!
