The online campaign is a fundraising initiative for the benefit of the En Coeur Foundation. The campaign will be held over a three month period, from August 15 to November 15, 2014, and will allow the general public to support the cause of children with heart disease and their families.

One out every 100 children is born with a heart malformation that will require medical care. Your efforts and support will allow us to fulfill our mission as well as our commitment to these families.

What is the duration of Mon défi En Coeur campaign?

The Mon défi campaign ends on November 15, 2014. However, the platform will now be available on an ongoing basis.

What are the registration fees for Mon défi En Cœur?

Registration is free. However, we do encourage you to invite your family and friends to send you donations using the "Make a donation" button.

Should I create an individual challenge or a group challenge?

You may certainly take on a group challenge for added motivation and results! Group challenges are easy to plan with your family, friends or coworkers. Why not invite other departments from your company to join in, and set up a friendly competition?

Why do I need to give my complete contact information, phone number, date of birth and other personal information?

Your contact information will be used by the En Cœur Foundation to allow the online donation system to verify your identity, issue a tax receipt, or communicate with you if necessary. Contact information will not be provided or sold to any third party and will be kept confidential. Only your name, challenge, goal and city will appear in your public display. Your age will only appear if you tick the “Show on my profile” box when you register. All this information can be modified at any time using the “Edit my profile” option when you are logged in.

How do I add a picture to my profile?

When you are filling in your profile (or once you have registered, and you select the “Edit my profile” option), click on “Choose your picture or avatar.” A pop-up window will open automatically. Choose a picture of yourself from your computer and click on Open. Slide the frame over the desired part of the picture and then click on “Resize image.” Note that the system only accepts JPEG files and GIF files under 3 Mb. You can replace your picture with another one at any time. If you prefer to select an avatar, we suggest that you select a picture among the choices offered by default in our stock images.

What is the purpose of “My motivation” and the “Photo gallery”?

These two parts of your public display allow you to make your profile more interesting for your donors.

For example, why did you choose this particular challenge? Do you or someone you know have heart disease? The photo gallery will allow you to show your efforts or the final result!

These two parts are optional, but we encourage you to use them to document your challenge.

How do I "share" a public display?

You have several options :

  • To share on Facebook, click on the "f" logo
  • To share on Twitter, click on the "bird" logo
  • To share by email, click on the "airplane" logo
  • You can also copy the URL by clicking on the "chain" logo and then send it using your preferred platform (for exemple: your personal email)


How can I edit my goal or my challenge?

Once you are logged in to your profile, click on “Edit my profile.” This option will enable you to edit all the fields you filled in when you registered.

Is the online payment system secure for my donors?
