RBaby Foundation

Being an advocate for your child during an emergency situation can have a significant impact on the overall outcome. Unfortunately, most parents do not know that many ERs nationwide are not prepared to deal with pediatric emergencies. No matter where you are in the US, with the touch of a screen the findERnow app quickly identifies the closest emergency rooms more likely to be prepared to treat children.

Girl Scouts Lifetime of Leadership

At Girl Scouts, “Can I?” quickly turns into “I will!” as girls transform their ideas into action, turn their questions into adventure, and grow their confidence through practice. And with more than 60 million other G.I.R.L.s to cheer them on every step of the way, there’s no limit to what they can—and will—accomplish. In fact, being a Girl Scout helps girls thrive in five key ways. As a Girl Scout, she: Develops a strong sense of self, Displays positive values, Seeks challenges and learns from setbacks, Forms and maintains healthy relationships,  Learns to identify and solve problems in her community. Get Started Today! With Girl Scouts, she’ll do more than she ever thought she could, dream bigger than she ever imagined, and—oh, yeah—change the world, for herself and for others!

Little Hats Big Hearts

The American Heart Association-Corpus Christi is celebrating the fourth year of Little Hats, Big Hearts™. Volunteers from around the country are helping the American Heart Association, in connection with the Children’s Heart Foundation, to celebrate American Heart Month by knitting and crocheting adorable red hats for babies born in February. Little Hats, Big Hearts™, honors babies and moms in a very special way. These tiny red hats, on thousands of babies, symbolize our shared mission of heart-healthy lives for everyone. The effort also raises awareness of congenital heart defects, and what we can all do to help prevent them. The American Heart Association is asking for volunteers to knit or crochet red baby hats to distribute to participating hospitals. Hats must be mailed to the Corpus Christi office at 500 N. Shoreline, Suite 203N Corpus Christi, TX 78401, by December 31 to be included in the February outreach effort. Donations may also be delivered to the office in person.  For more information about Little Hats, Big Hearts™, visit https://www.heart.org/en/get-involved/little-hats-big-hearts.
