What did Sharon need?

Hearts For Emma's in person annual gala has provided the resources we need to help children with heart disease in the hospital and their families for the past 7 years. Now that the gala is canceled this year due to Covid-19, we need help pivoting to virtual fundraising so we can continue to provide these needed programs and services.

What did Jennifer have to offer?

The initiatives delivered by Hearts for Emma offer significant improvements to people's lives at a time when they most need it. I'd love to be a part of an organisation that strives to make this difference. I'm currently based in the UK, I was due to move to New York with my husband in April, but of course with the COVID-19 situation this has been delayed. I'd be happy to help remotely however I can in the coming weeks from the UK, and then if needed, also from New York when I arrive. I've volunteered for 5 years as a befriender in my local community supporting elderly and isolated individuals, and in summer 2016 I volunteered as a carer in France for 10 physically disabled people caring for all aspects of their life while they were on holiday. I'm passionate about supporting others and breaking down barriers for the vulnerable and those in need. My most recent role at Cancer Research UK included supportIng the planning preparation and delivery of special events for high-value fundraising, and planning and delivering stewardship journeys to high-value donors and corporate partners.
