On January 4, 2021, Strickly Business Safety Solutions, LLC kicked off it is “Saving Little Hearts’ AED Fundraising Campaign in February, in recognition of National American Heart Month. We are raising money to benefit area Childcare Providers, and we are seeking any size donation towards raising funds to purchase and install five (5) new Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) units and associated supplies, totaling $5,750.
Approximately 7,037 children, in the United States, died from of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in 2017 (American Heart Association, 2018). Giving CPR and using an AED increases chances of survival for someone having sudden cardiac arrest as it can restore normal heart rhythm by sending an electric pulse to the heart. Statistics show when CPR is used alone, there is a nine percent survival rate. If CPR and an AED are used together, there is a 50 - 70% survival rate. As AEDs become more widely recognized for their lifesaving abilities, public education, awareness, and training efforts continue.
Early intervention for sudden cardiac arrest is critical for survival. Victims only have minutes after suffering an attack until irreversible brain damage or even death. UNLESS there is early intervention within the first few minutes with CPR an AED.
Facts about Sudden Cardiac Arrest:
Due to financial reasons, many public places, including Childcare Providers are not equipped with an AED.
Remember that the only way to help someone having Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is to give CPR and use an AED.
With generous donations from individuals, organizations, and businesses, we can provide area Childcare Providers with lifesaving AED’s.
“Saving Little Hearts” year-long AED Fundraising Campaign appreciates all donations from its generous supporters.
