Cheerios Circle of Helping Hearts - Pearl Bracelet Giveaway (NOW CLOSED)



Do you know your cholesterol number? High cholesterol is one of the major controllable factors for coronary heart disease, which is the number one cause of death for women. It is very IMPORTANT to know your cholesterol number.

I am grateful that my husband's insurance covers our yearly cholesterol screenings. I am also thankful that our cholesterol is "impressively" low, according to our screeners (- I think it's because we eat a lot of fiber-rich foods (including Cheerios!) & use olive oil as our main cooking oil).

Sadly, there are many who are unable to receive cholesterol screenings due to limited access to adequate health care.

WONDERING HOW YOU CAN HELP?

Look for codes inside specially marked boxes of Cheerios cereal & enter them @ www.cheerioshelpinghearts.com. Now through January 31, 2010, for every code entered, 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 WomenHeart.

To raise our awareness about heart disease, Cheerios is also sponsoring a Pearl Bracelet giveaway at my blog!

Each of 3 lucky winners will have a chance to get a freshwater pearl bracelet with a heart charm from Charity Charms.  By wearing the charm bracelet, you can show your dedication to raising awareness of women's heart health.

You are so right about knowing the cholesterol number and doing something good for your heart health.
We are also going that route, watching what we eat (and include plenty of Cheerios in our diet! :))

Thank you for a chance to win! Either one of my girls would proudly wear the bracelet and spread the word about it.

I try to use olive oil when ever I can. We take fish oil daily and we watch the rest of the foods we eat. I also drink one glass of red wine every evening after dinner. (I don't drink anything else as I don't like wine at all.) Besides eating well we try and keep fit.
