A Heartfelt Donation: eBay Foundation
Sisters by Heart is thrilled to announce that we've been the recipient of an eBay Foundation grant!
One of our Sisters by Heart board members, Stacie Jackley, has been working for GSI Commerce, a subsidiary of eBay, inc., for the past 11 years. A few months ago, she received an email from the eBay, inc. GIVE Team offering a unique opportunity for employees to apply for a grant up to $5,000 to support their favorite non-profit organization.
Stacie immediately thought of Sisters by Heart and, along with fellow board members, completed the application. The application was submitted with fingers crossed.
We found out in late December that Sisters by Heart was one of the organizations to be awarded a grant of an astonishing $5,000! Needless to say, we are ecstatic and so appreciative of the generosity of the eBay inc Foundation! Sisters by Heart has grown tremendously since established in December 2010 and we're thrilled at how this grant will help us further our mission of supporting families facing a new HLHS diagnosis!

What a great way to start off 2013!
