You may soon see hearts popping up all over Western New York!

Throughout the month of February, Sweet Buffalo Rocks and Totally Buffalo Cares are teaming up with local businesses and organizations to raise funds for children battling pediatric cancer and life-threatening illnesses with the “Little Sweet Hearts” campaign.

Every heart sold will bring a smile to children in partnership with PUNT Pediatric Cancer Collaborative, Special Spaces Buffalo, Totally Buffalo Cares and Sweet Buffalo Rocks.

An amazing event for children to celebrate their strength and courage will follow!

Ten-year-old Abbie McNett rang the bell at Roswell Park on Jan. 19 after battling cancer for a year. She is a true warrior, and so our very first “Little Sweet Heart” went to her. Abbie and many children like her who bravely fight battles every single day are the reason why we are working so hard to make children smile through the “Little Sweet Hearts” campaign.

You can purchase a “Little Sweet Heart” at more than 50 locations across Western New York, thanks to our amazing community.

While the campaign officially started Wednesday, several businesses began selling the hearts early – and are already asking for more as they’ve sold out!
