Hug for Hearts™

What is Hug For Hearts™?
On 14th February, Valentines Day represents an opportunity to send another person your love and/or affection.  It is symbolised by hearts & often expressed in sending a card, flowers or chocolates.
This Valentines Day week, we are asking people to Hug For Hearts™ with their friends, family & work colleagues.
When can I Hug For Hearts™?
From November 30, 2009, all you have to do is get your friends to sponsor you to hug (or kiss!) them during Valentines Day Week (8th-14th February, 2010)
How can I Hug For Hearts™?
You can create your own individual or team (family, company or social club) fundraising page by clicking on the "Start Hugging" button.

Hug For Hearts™ is supporting the Heart Foundation, Australia's leading heart health charity.

A major celebrity event will also take place at Customs House Square,
Circular Quay, Sydney on Friday, February 12 from midday to 1:30pm.

Members of the public will have the opportunity to hug their favourite
celebrities for a donation - Jon Stevens, Lyndsey Rodrigues, Charlotte Dawson (Australia's Next Top Model), Andrew Reid (Bondi Rescue) and many others will be there.

“My brother Jason died from a heart disease at the age of 9 & cardiovascular disease kills approximately 46,000 Australians a year – this project is set up in the memory of my brother and the many thousands that have been touched or lost their lives to heart disease”
