Since our founding in 2014, Hearts for Russ has worked hard to collect donations to benefit heart and transplant-related causes.  In fact, we have raised over $100,000 and provided these dollars to several important organizations.  Please find more information about our worthy recipients below.  

Harboring Hearts provides emergency housing, transportation, food and emotional support programming to heart  transplant, liver transplant and cardio-thoracic surgery patients and their caregivers.  It was started by Michelle Javian  in 2009 following the passing of her father from heart disease.  Michelle witnessed first-hand  the hardships faced by families coming to New York for medical procedures and treatment and did something about it.
