Thanks for your Gold Heart!
April 8th, 2013
Started in 1991 on Valentine's Day, The Gold Heart Fundraising Program grew from a campaign in Great Britain to a global initiative to support children who have special needs. The symbol of the campaign is a small gold-colored, heart-shaped pin and is a powerful icon of caring and support. Since its inception, the Gold Heart Program has raised millions of dollars in the US and over $100 million worldwide!
For the 2013 Gold Heart campaign, Variety – The Children’s Charity partnered with Walt Disney Pictures, Pixar, and Celebration Cinemas to feature the loveable duo from the upcoming Monsters Inc 3D, Sulley and Mike!
This year, the Gold Heart Campaign raised a total of $7,321.07 for Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth. Thank you to all the community partners who make this program possible!
