In case you haven’t heard Colby’s story yet
Colby Groom was born with a congenital heart defect that resulted in him being in and out of hospitals throughout his young life.
That included going through two back-to-back open-heart surgeries by the time he was 10.
…so much for a young kid.
But with the encouragement of his dad, Colby got brave quick.
– and he’s dedicated his life to filling other kids’ lives with hope and healing to get through surgeries like his since.
In fact, Colby has raised a total of $1.5 million for heart research!
And that money has gone to incredible charities, like The American Heart Association and The Children’s Heart Foundation.
Then Angels came in – and really brought the magic
Daryl recently shared Colby’s story with Angels for the first time…
He asked if we’d like to get involved and help the cause by pre-ordering a special wine.
You all have responded overwhelmingly – and that’s great news for Colby’s charity of choice.
Nakedwines.com Angels have raised an additional $112,300 for the cause through pre-orders of Daryl’s charitable blend!
– and now, to honor his years of work…
The Children’s Heart Foundation just announced they’re launching
a heart research fund — in Colby’s name!
One in every 110 babies is born with a broken heart, making congenital heart defects (CHDs) the most common birth defect in the world.
The Children’s Heart Foundation does incredible things to reduce that number and give children happy, healthy lives.
Now you do, too.
Watch Colby’s thank you message – with a special dedication
It really goes to show that wine might bring us all together, but your grateful hearts are what make this place a family.
And Angels continue to lift Daryl and Colby up
– not only by helping them raise money for an incredible case – but by share incredibly touching stories of their own – about health, family, and the importance of coming together.
It goes without saying too often, so let me say it loud and clear:
We are so grateful for your kind and generous hearts, Angels.
