GotAED, is a crowdfunding site dedicated to placing automated external defibrillators (AED devices) where kids learn and play. Sudden cardiac arrest isn’t just an adult thing. It is the number one killer of student athletes each year. An AED device is the only tool that can save someone in cardiac arrest, because it shocks the heart back into normal rhythm. GotAED makes it practical and affordable for youth-related facilities to raise money and acquire an AED device. From personal experience, we know that funding for AEDs can be very expensive, so we want to provide you a realistic and easy resource to get them.

For your mitzvah project:
This opportunity is both educational and lifesaving. First, you will need to research youth facilities (school, field, sports league, dance studio, library etc.) near you that might not have an AED device. Once you locate a place that doesn’t have one, you will have to communicate with the Executive Director asking if you would be allowed to place one. Then the fun part comes. You will create a GotAED campaign. Stating who you are, who the organization is, why an AED is important, how many kids come annually to the facility etc. When it goes live, you can promote it through social media, send email blasts, create newsletters; be as CREATIVE as you want. Once you hit your goal, an AED device and cabinet is delivered to your door. Yes, it is that simple and it has a lifesaving effect. If you have any questions, please contact me
