September 21, 2006: The traditional role of the ‘DoorKnock’ is challenged with the launch of the Heart Foundation’s online campaign

“Our neighbourhoods have expanded across the world through the internet and email,” says Tony Thirlwell, Heart Foundation CEO – NSW Division. “We have developed our annual appeal to include these communities.”"
