Do you know your cholesterol number? High cholesterol is one of the major controllable factors for coronary heart disease. By knowing your numbers and assessing your risks now, you can work with your doctor to significantly reduce your chances of getting heart disease.
Unfortunately, women without adequate health care may not get regular cholesterol screenings, but here's how you can help.
Now through January 31, 2010, for every code entered at Cheerios Helping Hearts, Cheerios will donate $1, up to $200,000, to raise awareness for heart disease and provide free cholesterol screenings for women in need, through its partnership with Women Heart. Codes will be featured inside specially marked boxes of Cheerios cereal.
What's in it for you? I am hosting a great giveaway. THREE lucky readers will receive a freshwater pearl bracelet with heart charm (pictured above) from Charity Charms, which donates a portion of it's proceeds to charities. By wearing this beautiful bracelet you can show your support of women's heart health.
My rules are very simple:
Earn ONE entry by leaving me a comment telling me what it is you do to keep your heart healthy. You must do this FIRST, before earning additional entries. Be sure to leave a valid email address if you're a no reply blogger. You can't win if I can't find you.
Earn ONE extra entry by following my blog and leaving a comment, if you already follow, thank you, but please leave me a comment reminding me of this.
Earn ONE extra entry by following me on Twitter, again remind me if you already do.
Earn FIVE extra entries by writing a post about a woman you know that has battled and/or overcome heart disease and link to my blog.
That's it! Easy Peasy.
This contest will run until March 10, which just happens to be the 20th anniversary of the day Whynot stole my heart.
