Nominate a Kiwi School
Embracing Hearts aims to donate an AED to every Kiwi , preschool, school, college or similar with a heart kid where possible.
We operate as a 100% volunteer New Zealand charity and are reliant on donations and grants. These tend to come from the communities where the schools are based. We love it when schools hold fundraising events for their own AED or to pay it forward to another school.
Information Required by email to email@example.com
Name of heart kid
Age of heart kid and years expected to attend
Parent name and email
School name, contact person, phone, email and address
Confirmation that the school doesn’t have an AED and would like to have one
Family approval for a photo to be shared on our social media and website
Once this information is received, we check with the Ambulance Services that the school is a suitable location for an inside or outside AED and begin to source funding. All decisions re donations of AEDs are made with Embracing Hearts' Trustees and Accountant and the relevant Ambulance Service.
Where possible, we prefer to donate a 24/7 AED with alarmed lock box that is accessible by the entire community at all times.
Once the child leaves the centre or school, the AED stays there and we are happy to then help fundraise for the next school if needed.
If a 24/7 AED is not practical, inside models at lower prices are available on request.
Embracing Hearts Charitable Trust is a GST registered New Zealand charity with donee status.
