This Giveaway is now closed.
I am happy to be able host this giveaway for my readers and help spread the word about the importance of women's heart health education with Cheerios Circle of Helping Hearts and MyBlogSpark.
Three of my lucky readers will have the chance to WIN a timeless freshwater pearl bracelet with a heart charm from Charity Charms!
Charity Charms donates a portion of the proceeds from its charms to various charities. By wearing the charm bracelet, you can show your dedication to raising awareness of women's heart health.
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%) have not had their cholesterol
checked within the past year.
Those with limited access to adequate health care may not get regular
cholesterol screenings and thus are at an even greater risk for heart
Wondering how you can help? Now through January 31, 2010, for every code
entered at http://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 Women Heart. Codes
will be featured inside specially marked boxes of Cheerios cereal.
