Connecticut Online Jewelry brand NICK DEDO Supports the American Heart Association’s Life Is Why We Give Campaign

Campaign provides funds to fight heart disease and stroke

Every 40 seconds, someone in America experiences a stroke or a heart attack. These sudden health emergencies impact not only the individual, but also their families and loved ones. Beginning this December through February 2021, Connecticut online jewelry brand, NICK DEDO will support the American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on heart and brain health for all.

Through the Life Is Why We Give™ campaign, supporting companies including NICK DEDO and their customers, have a quick and easy way to give to the Association and support its mission.

Sales of the Heart Strong necklace from the NICK DEDO collection will allow the Association to fund research that can:

  • Improve the health outcomes of heart and stroke patients
  • Advocate for legislation that ensures newborns in 47 states are screened for critical congenital heart defects
  • Train more than 2.5 million high school students in CPR annually
  • Provide resources and access to under-resourced communities

“The work that the American Heart Association does each day to prevent heart disease and stroke and to provide research and resources that let people live healthier lives could not be done without the support of contributors to Life is Why We Give,” said Nick DeDo, owner and designer of the Heart Strong necklace and maker of fine jewelry that inspires people to support, give and share.
