A recent study showed that more than one-third of adults have not had their cholesterol checked within the past year. Cholesterol is one the largest controllable factors in heart disease. Did you know heart disease is the number one cause of death in women? Do you know what your cholesterol number is?
Cheerios has been on a crusade to help people lower cholesterol for a while, but now they are going one step further. Now through January 31, 2010, if you buy cheerios marked like the one in the picture above your box will have a “Helping Hearts” code inside. 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.
So go buy your B1G1 Cheerios this week with your printable coupon and enter your codes to help out the cause!
In honor of their new program, Cheerios is giving away 3 Freshwater Pearl Bracelets with a heart charm from Charity Charms to Southern Savers readers. These are beautiful bracelets! For you guys, your wives/girlfriends would love them so don’t feel too left out (click on the picture above to see the bracelet).
Leave a comment below with what you do to stay healthy. Or what you don’t do but should… If you have a frugal way of being healthy that’s even better!! Please one entry per person.
I will pick the winners Saturday evening.
