Why do you think they are deserving of a Bloomie?

Talk about a gut punch.

In an interview with Jennifer Faull of The Drum, BHF director of marketing and engagement Carolan Davidge said “This campaign marks the start of a long term strategy for BHF to shift the way people think about heart disease. By making people contemplate the unexpected devastation that heart disease causes, we hope to inspire people to donate funds to continue BHF’s lifesaving research.”
