$10,000 Donation to Saving tiny Hearts Society

In the United States alone, one in 125 newborns suffer from a congenital heart defect (CHD), making it America’s number one birth defect. The Saving tiny Hearts Society is committed to funding CHD research, extending the lives of children born with a CHD today and those 50 years from now.

In appreciation for the efforts of the Saving tiny Hearts Society, Step2 pledged $10,000 as part of the holiday 2011 contest to support CHD research in hopes of erasing this life-threatening condition forever.

“At Step2 we are a big extended family and some of our own have been affected by Congenital Heart Defects,” said Jerry McDermott, chief marketing officer.” As part of our Just BeCause program to reach out and do something good, we are able to touch the lives of others who want their children to be well and need attention on a cause for further research and development.”

“We’re thrilled Step2 is a member of the Saving tiny Hearts Family,” said Francie Paul, the Chairman and President of the Saving tiny Hearts Society. “This donation is funding promising CHD research in hopes of finding a cure. We are eternally grateful for their continued support.”

Happy New Year from Step2

We’d like to wish everyone a safe New Year’s celebration and a very happy 2012, from our family here at Step2 to yours!

Happy 2012

Family is very important to us here at Step2, so our office will be closed on Monday, January 2nd in observance of the New Year holiday so that we too can celebrate the holiday with our families. We will be back to assist you at 8am ET on Tuesday, January 3rd.

Vote for Your Favorite Big Imaginations are Cooking Video

Step2 Holiday Contest Voting

The second phase of the Big Imaginations are Cooking Contest has now begun. The top finalists were selected based on their original essay and sent a Step2 play kitchen and a video camera to capture their child playing creatively with their new kitchen. Now it’s your turn to determine who should win the $5,000 grand prize!

Votes from the general public will decide the winner. Voting is now open at the contest website and will end at 11:59 PM ET on January 8, 2012. Each person may vote one time per day.

There are two incentives to vote. Each voter will be entered to win a Step2 play kitchen of their own – the LifeStyle Grand Walk-In Kitchen. We will select 1 winner each week during the voting period, which means we will be giving away 5 kitchens total! Plus, we will be donating $1 for each vote to the Saving tiny Hearts Society (up to $10,000).

Good luck to all the finalists! The winner will be announced on Monday, January 9, 2012.

About Saving tiny Hearts Society

The Saving tiny Hearts Society ’s mission is to raise money for grossly under-funded, lifesaving grass roots research of congenital heart defects (CHD’s). This seed funding acts as a bridge for this research to millions of dollars of extramural funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH) or other outside funding. CHD’s are America’s #1 birth defect affecting over 40,000 babies every year!
