Splash Up Some Love for Saving Tiny Hearts

For almost six years, Step2 has partnered with the Saving Tiny Hearts Society (StHS) to raise money  to fund research  around congenital heart defects (CHD). CHD is the number one birth defect in the United States and the world, and is also the most fatal childhood disease. A child is born with CHD every 15 minutes and 100,000 of them will not survive to celebrate their first birthday.  Thousands more will not make it to adulthood.  Research can change those numbers and that is why we are committed to this cause and have been for such a long time.

Two and a half years ago, the Step2 family was also personally impacted  by CHD.  Tena the Director of Online Marketing has a son named Myles who was born with CHD. In the first seven months of Myles’ life, he underwent three heart surgeries and one heart catheterization. Myles will have one more surgery before he is ready to go off to kindergarten.

Since learning about Myles’ diagnoses during her 20 week ultrasound, StHS has offered Tena and her family hope, support, and information about the importance of CHD research. We appreciate StHS and consider them an extension of our family at Step2.  Saving tiny Hearts has raised $2 million in last nine years for CHD research.  They have no paid employees and $0.98 of every dollar raised is put into research efforts.

Each year, we try to find new and creative ways to raise money for StHS..  In 2014, we will be donating a portion of the sales from each Tropical Island Resort to StHS. Also, the packaging of the product features a very special guest that is near and dear to our hearts – Myles! You can check him out rocking his scar on the packaging of this product along with the StHS logo.  This product is available online or in-store at Walmart.
