Freshwater Pearl Bracelet Giveaway!


*CONTEST 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. A recent study conducted by Harris Interactive for Cheerios found that more than one-third of adults (37 percent) have not had their cholesterol checked within the past year.*

Those with limited access to adequate healthcare may not get regular cholesterol screenings and thus are at an even greater risk for heart disease.

Wondering how you can help? Now through January 31, 2010, for every code entered at www.cheerioshelpinghearts.com, 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. Codes will be featured inside specially marked boxes of Cheerios cereal.

My kids are crazy about Cheerios. And like many other things, they have their own special way of eating them. After filling their bowl high with cheerios and milk, they sprinkle it with cinnamon. A new trend? Maybe. Maybe not. ;)

I was excited to be able to spread the word about this great program, not only because I love Cheerios, but because of the fabulous giveaway involved!


Cheerios sent me a fabulous freshwater pearl bracelet with silver charm a few weeks ago. I was immediately struck by the quality of the bracelet. KitKat, my 12 year old, noticed too, and tried really hard to get me to agree to give it to her. Too bad she can't enter the contest here, because I get to give away THREE of these bracelets!
Now you can show your dedication to raising awareness of women's heart health by wearing one of these bracelets, too.

Here's what you can do to win one of these bracelets: Visit Cheerios Helping Hearts and let me know one thing that you have learned about the importance of maintaining a healthy heart, or what YOU do to keep your heart healthy. You can also share something you like about the Cheerios Helping Hearts campaign.

  1. Ummm... wow. I read this scary statistic over at the Heart Truth (home of the red dress campaign): An astonishing 80 percent of women ages 40 to 60 have one or more risk factor for heart disease.

    I don't have the risk factors of being a smoker, obesity, high blood pressure or cholesterol, but my diet is terrible and I don't exercise. I realize as I get closer to 40, I need to start taking better care of myself so that I can be here to enjoy my children, and hopefully grandchildren, as long as possible. Time to start the diet and exercise plan I've been putting off for, well, ever!

  7. Lolli, I have my cholesterol checked every 3 months. I went YESTERDAY in fact. I read labels, I changed my diet in the fall. I now drink skim milk, I use "I can't believe it's not butter" spray in place of butter. (Don't try other brands-I did the testing for you, they are awful!) I take a statin ( ie:Lipitor, Zocor) every day. I have a family history of high cholesterol and a bad diet I am working on changing.
