The organization is teaming up with The Children's Heart Foundation to mark American Heart Month in February with "Little Hats, Big Hearts". The hats are distributed to babies with and without heart defects.
They'll be given to babies born in February at participating hospitals in the hope of empowering mothers to look after their heart health and encourage their children to do the same.
