Christy Silva, the founder of Aidan’s Heart Foundation, a Thorndale-based nonprofit, has been recognized by L’Oréal Paris as one of 10 extraordinary women across the U.S. who are selflessly making a difference in their communities through volunteerism.
Now in its 13th year, Women of Worth is the signature philanthropic program inspired by the L’Oréal Paris tagline, “Because You’re Worth It,” and honors the intrinsic worth of everyday women inspiring others and creating positive change.
Each with their own inspiring journey, the Women of Worth are united by a singular vision of giving back to their communities to champion a range of charitable causes. Aidan’s Heart Foundation is committed to providing awareness, education, and support to create heart-safe communities for youth regarding the prevention and response to Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
In addition to receiving $10,000 to support her charitable cause, each Women of Worth honoree will be supported by national paid media, receive educational and training opportunities, and a platform to tell her story on a national scale.
“Being a Women of Worth means sharing life-saving information that will help other families learn how to avoid the tragedy of losing a loved one,” said Silva.
The public is invited to vote for one woman to become this year’s national honoree, who will receive an additional $25,000 to support her cause for a total of $35,000.
“This year’s honorees beautifully exemplify the L’Oréal Paris mission, and we look forward to continuing to champion our Women of Worth to make an impact in their communities and around the world,” said Tim Coolican, President of L’Oréal Paris.
