Little Courage Hearts
A tangible symbol of love, hope and kindness
Raise money for your favourite heart-centred cause:
Little Courage Hearts is a giving program and we’d love you to consider these small, fabric hearts as a way to raise funds for your organisation, your school, your social club, your sporting organisation or your favourite heart-centred cause. By choosing Little Courage Hearts, you will help support the disadvantaged communities who make them and spread the message and values of courage, love, hope and kindness that are so needed in our families, workplaces and wider communities.
Support a disadvantaged community:
Little Courage Hearts are small, fabric hearts filled with volcanic sand from the lava rock of Mount Batur in Bali. In the mountains north of Ubud, a group of young people who are deaf, stitch together unique and perfectly imperfect hearts! There is a significant stigma associated with a disability in Bali and many of the youngsters are orphaned. Building their skills to enable them to run a small business making Little Courage Hearts means they can generate sustainable livelihoods. Each heart comes with a beautiful card which tells this story as well as space to write your own message.
Spread courage, love, hope and kindness:
A Little Courage Heart can be kept in a pocket, placed under a pillow or in your bag and squeezed when comfort or courage is needed. Much more meaningful and for the same price as a greeting card, they can be given to friends, colleagues, clients, team members, parents, grand-parents, teachers or even strangers to show them you care, to celebrate an occasion or to simply say ‘thank you’.
Here are some ways you can make a huge difference by spreading love, hope and kindness with Little Courage Hearts –
- Partner your organisation with the right cause – For a social good or giving program to succeed in your organisation, it’s important to find a cause that connects to your vision or brand and resonates for your people. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) fundraisers spread the word about your organisation’s goals amongst corporate networks and also family, friends and the broader community. Right now, CSR is more important than ever, but it can’t be accomplished by simply writing a cheque to a charity each year. For-profit businesses can make a big difference in the social sector by investing wisely and connecting people with causes that matter. Little Courage Hearts is a cause that matters.
- Fundraising for your work social club or sporting club – Make a plan with your team to raise funds for a project or event which will boost your work social club reserves so that more time can be spent enjoying getting to know your colleagues. If you play on a sports team, you might need to raise money for equipment, travel expenses, jerseys, and more. Promoting positive values such as love, hope & kindness – and courage – on and off the field, will impact your whole club.
- Fundraising for your school – Inject new life into your school fundraiser by replacing the chocolate, hot-cross bun and fun runs which are promoted year in, year out with Little Courage Hearts. Why not encourage students to take some home to share with friends and family and the wider community? And why not have some always available at your school so that this important message can continue to spread throughout the year.
