In honor of heart month, the Martinsville Arts Council partnered with fellow non-profit Mended Little Hearts of Indianapolis in February. Donations helped provide Bravery Bags to families with children receiving hospital care for a congenital heart defect. 1 in 110 babies a year are born with a CHD – making it the most common birth defect in the US. Mended Little Hearts’ Bravery Bags help make hospital stays easier and let families experiencing this challenging diagnosis know they are not alone.
Through February, all donations (both monetary and Bravery Bag items) were matched up to a value of $1000.
