Cheerios Circle of Helping Hearts Giveaway



******THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED******

General Mills has teamed up with WomenHeart in Cheerios Circle of Helping Hearts to offer free cholesterol screening to women in need everywhere. Why? To help in early detection of heart disease.

WomenHeart is the nation’s only patient advocacy organization representing more than 44 million American women living with or at risk for heart disease. It’s mission is to improve the quality of women’s lives and the quality of their healthcare, to include prevention and early detection, accurate diagnosis, and proper treatment of heart disease.

Want to know how you can contribute to this great cause? Inside every box of specially marked Cheerios is a code that you enter on cheerioshelpinghearts.com. For every code entered, Cheerios will donate $1, up to $200,000, to raise awareness for heart disease and provide the free cholesterol screenings.

Cheerios sent me a freshwater pearl bracelet with a heart charm from Charity Charms, (Charity Charms donates a portion of its proceeds to various charities), so I can show my dedication to raising awareness of women’s heart health.

Would you like your own bracelet? Cheerios is generously giving three of my readers their own freshwater pearl bracelet. To enter this giveaway:

1. Leave me a comment telling me how you maintain a healthy heart (must be done for other entries to count).
2. For an extra entry, subscribe to my blog by email or RSS, or follow me on blogger, and leave me a comment letting me know you have done so. If you are already a follower leave a comment letting me know.
3. For another entry, grab my button and add it to your blogroll or sidebar and leave me a comment letting me know.
4. Follow me on Twitter and Tweet this contest. Leave me a comment with the link, so I can check.

Don’t forget to leave your email address in your comments, or make sure it is on your profile and your profile is set to public, so I can contact you if you win. Giveaway open to US addresses, only.

This contest ends Sunday, March 15, at midnight. I will contact the three winners, who will have until Tuesday, March 17, to email me with their mailing addresses. If I don’t hear from them by the deadline I will pick a runner up.

angelface said...

I found out this year that I have "high blood pressure" so I changed some of my eating habits. My milk & cheeses are low-fat now, and I'm staying aware of everything I eat... I joined a gym -- the one in my town closed a year ago -- and I'm working at the way I deal with stress... I'm not even 40, but I realize how important it is to take care of the heart. I bought a cuff monitor to check from time to time... I plan on beating this disease -- won't let it beat me! Great contest!

Even though I'm still in my 20s, I am aware that heart disease is prevalent among women and is a silent killer. I try my best to not let stress overwhelm me, because over time, it does much harm to the heart and overall health. I also try to get some vigorous walking done, and stay away from very fatty foods.
