One Beat CPR + AED launches grant program to local parks, charities, youth groups

 

One Beat CPR + AED, one of the nation’s leading distributors of defibrillators and accessories, announced the launch of the “ One Beat Project” grant program.

The “One Beat Project” is designed to provide schools, camps, and charitable foundations with the opportunity to receive an automated external defibrillator for their respective facilities. An AED is a medical device that analyzes heart rhythm. If appropriate, in the event of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, the device delivers an electric shock to try to restore normal heart rhythm. AEDs are easy to use and with proper CPR training, they are highly effective at saving lives.

To apply for the “One Beat Project” grant, organizations are asked to submit a creative and unique video that highlights why they should be considered for the AED donation. All of One Beat CPR + AED’s grant programs are online contests. All eligible videos will be posted on the One Beat CPR + AED Facebook page www.facebook.com/OneBeatCPR, and the three videos garnering the most votes will receive an AED package.

The deadline for application submission is April 15.

Organizations interested in participating in the “One Beat Project” can visit www.onebeatcpr.com for the grant program information and application.
