Heart Week 2013 - Call for Volunteers

Every 90 minutes one New Zealander dies of heart disease. Could you spare 90 minutes to help by busking at our Heart Week Street Appeal? During our last Street Appeal, more than 2,000 New Zealanders volunteered their time to help make the campaign a huge success - this year, we need your help again.

Heart Week is reminder for us to love our hearts and stay healthy so we can achieve all those goals in life we set out to conquer - the big ones and heaps of small ones! It is also the occasion when we ask New Zealanders to support our work by making a donation that will allow us to carry on our work across schools, research, cardiac rehabilitation and health promotion.

None of this would be possible without the generosity of our incredible volunteers that give so much to be part of our Street Appeal.

Could you spare 90 minutes on either Friday 15 or Saturday 16 February to busk and donate the proceeds to the Heart Foundation? Heart Week is looking for Auckland-based buskers (musicians or otherwise) to don the Heart Foundation bib for 90 minutes and help raise money for this important cause.

With a healthy heart, you can fulfil a lifetime:

- TXT 'Volunteer' to 244 for us to contact you (TXTs cost 20c)
- Ring 0800 830 100
- Or take a moment to register now at http://www.heartfoundation.org.nz/heartweek

Contact Audrey Tolua, Heart Foundation, for more information:

- Tel (09) 526 8422

Here's a perfect way to follow-up on your New Year's resolution of doing good deeds. It doesn't matter if you're an established musician, or if you can only manage to bang on a drum, support Heart Week and volunteer your time. Let's fill the streets of Auckland with music and a charitable spirit, and start 2013 off with a positive contribution.
