In the spring of 2010, there was a request on Facebook for funds to help a young Vietnamese boy get a heart operation. The boy’s surgery and recovery, thanks to many kind hearts and Heartbeat Vietnam (HBVN) program, did not only inspire the idea of Grace’s Cookies, but also made us more determined than ever to save the lives of these suffering children.
Made and sold by volunteers with all proceeds donated to Heartbeat Vietnam, these delicious home-baked cookies have become a well-known and lovåed avenue for raising money to help disadvantaged children.
100% of all cookie sales revenue are donated to Heartbeat Vietnam, helping underserved children with congenital heart defects receive their urgently-needed support on time.
For the child or the child at heart, they’re more than just a treat for the eyes. A bit on the sweet side with a hint of vanilla their popularity is fully justified.

The smile of a child who has had life-saving heart surgery and now has the chance to grow up and fulfill their potential is the best return on an investment I have ever made. That’s why I started the VinaCapital Foundation.
