ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
------ x ------
Ava’s Heart foundation provides critically needed care to transplant families who might not otherwise be able to receive a transplant and to those whose loved ones have given the gift of life and need follow up assistance. The patients served through Ava’s Heart often have difficulty being listed because they need to be able to demonstrate their access to care pre-and post transplant, and they might have a limited understanding of how to search for community resources that can help in this effort. Also integral to our mission is to support donor families, raise awareness and educate the public about the challenges transplant patients face,
The mission of Ava’s Heart is to provide resources and case management support services to transplant patients and their families who would otherwise not be able to access the needed treatments and care. While providing support to the donor, the recipient and their families, Ava’s Heart is also committed to raising public awareness about the need for more organ and tissue donors. There are over 122,000 people nationwide waiting, and 22 people dying everyday waiting for the gift of life.
Funds raised provide resources and case management support services to transplant patients and their families, who would otherwise likely not be able to access the needed treatments and care.

What is Charity Footprints?
Charity Footprints is a social enterprise that connects fitness and charitable giving. We empower people just like you, to get fit & give back.
Our Virtual Races allow non-profits to challenge their patrons to run, walk or ride and raise funds just as they would in a fundraising walkathon. The best part - charities save over 45% in event and logistical costs. So, the dollars that you pay to register or fundraise, go farther.
What is the campaign registration fee?
Campaign registration fee is the amount that you'll need to pay to enroll in this virtual race. This fee (less transaction charges) will go to the non-profit running this campaign as a donation.
The registration fee along with the funds raised through your individual fundraising page will enable the non-profit to fund various programs and pursue their organization's mission.
How can I create my fundraising page?
Well, you wouldn't have to create a separate fundraising page. Once you register for this campaign, we'll give you the link to your fundraising page.
How will I track my distance?
You can track your workouts by setting up your devices (Fitbit), or download the Charity Footprints' iOS or Android app and track your workouts toward this campaign.
If your campaign has teams, you can see all the existing teams on campaign's home page. You can click "Join Team" button to register for the campaign with the selected team.
If you have already registered for the campaign but did not join a team at the time of registration, you can still join a team by clicking on the "Join Team" button on the home page. It will assign you the team and redirect you to your team page.
I am an international donor (non-US), what are my donation charges and tax-deductibility?
All donations are made in US dollars, so the donations may be levied an exchange rate fee via your bank. Donors will want to connect with their bank to determine exactly what that fee may be. Additionally, international donors will need to reach out to a tax professional to discuss if and how tax deductibility will apply to their donation.
Who can sponsor my fundraising efforts?
The short answer is - everyone. The fundraising research shows that the number one reason for people not donating is that they weren't asked to.
That said, there are things you can do to attract people to sponsor you. Adding a picture to your fundraising page, telling potential donors why this cause is so personal to you, sharing your fundraising page on social media, email, and chat groups.
Last, if your employer has a gift matching program, check with the human resources department to support your favorite cause as well.
Who can I contact if I need help?
You can contact us any time if you need help. We love hearing from our users so please don't hesitate to write to us about issues, suggestions, or to just say hi. You can also contact the non-profit administrator directly if you would like.
How do I change or switch my team?
If you have already joined a team, we do not allow switching of team as team's reports data is dependent on team's composition and changing team may affect a team's performance.
If you still want to change your team (like if you joined a team by mistake) or create your own team, please email us at email@example.com and we will switch your team.
