Tools for you

Interested in raising important awareness and life-saving funds in the fight against women’s risk for heart disease and stroke? Use these tools to organize an inspiring and educational The Heart Truth event in your community!

The Heart Truth Presentation Kit, The Heart Truth Viewing Party Kit, and The Heart Truth Fashion Show Kit contain all the materials you need for running a successful presentation or event from the ground up. The Heart Truth Games Kit offers two heart-healthy inspired activities, Truth and Care and The Heart Truth Inspiration Board, which can be used together, or on their own, and are a great addition to a presentation, viewing party or games night. Materials and activities from each Kit can be mixed and matched as you see fit, or you can use them in their entirety.

Sharing The Heart Truth with other women and encouraging them to make healthy lifestyle changes can reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke by as much as 80 per cent. Use these Kits to spread an important message to friends, family members and women in your community that it’s time they put their heart health first.

 Handouts

There are a number of handouts you can print and distribute to your audience. These handouts outline important, basic information on heart health that they can take with them and refer to in future.

Handouts include:

  • The Heart Truth brochure provides an overview of the campaign and the importance of heart health. If possible, print the brochure two-sides and in colour to create an attractive pamphlet.
  • This fact sheet covers the warning signs for heart disease and for stroke and includes tips on making lifestyle changes that can reduce your risk significantly.
  • This information sheet helps women identify questions they need to ask their doctor about their heart health during their next check-up.
  • These simple commitment cards are distributed to your audience so that they can write down one thing they plan to do to improve their heart health. They can be kept in your wallet or purse as a reminder of your first-step commitment to better heart health.
  • The feedback forms are distributed to your audience at the end of the presentation. You can collect them up and submit the information to the Heart and Stroke Foundation using the online feedback form.
