Save the Heartbeat is a non-profit organization that benefits those that are affected by congenital heart disease (CHD). Danielle and Jonathan Maloof started this charity after their son, Remington, was born with an undiagnosed congenital heart defect in 2013. The custom-designed Heartbeat jewelry line that you see in our shop was inspired by Remington and all the other 1 in 100 who are born with CHD. This line can be purchased online or at Micky's Jewelry Studio in La Verne, CA. All proceeds from donations and sales goes toward our mission of advocating early detection, increasing awareness funding research & early detection programs, and community outreach for those that are affected by CHD.
Save the Heartbeat is a registered 501(c)(3) charity. Our tax ID number for donations and purchases is: 81-2470378.
