About The Founder

My name is Loanne Merlin and I decided to create Their Heart Needs Your Beat, a non-profit organisation that would raise funds for a L'Institut du Coeur, during my senior year of high school. After leaving for college I continued to manage the business from afar. Last year, I also began developing a new product that will soon be available for purchases in Vietnam. My sister, Anna Merlin also decided to join this project and is now in charge of all graphics and design aspects of THNYB. Together, we have now raised over USD$12,000, enough to provide over 6 heart surgeries.
