Happy Heart Month!

I love the awareness campaign created by the American Heart Association. I hope you will join me in saying thank you to their generous supporters!

Happy Heart Month! We have so many great partners that are raising awareness this month that we need your help to say thank you! You can Walk, Jog, Run, March or Saunter. . .all for the sake of your heart.

    1. Walk to Walgreens – now through February 26 all Walgreens stores are taking dollar donations. The goal is to raise $200,000 throughout DFW.
    2. Jog to Jiffy Lube – but don’t forget your car! Nationally the are planning to raise $1 million. . .$3 at a time through March 14.
    3. Run to Ross – Ross Stores have already raised over $1 million nationally and are well on their way to their goal of $2 million. They are selling paper hearts and pins.
    4. March to Macy’s – their Wear Red promotion occurs February 3 – 7. Macy’s will be offering a 20% savings pass for anyone wearing red. If you aren’t wearing red you can purchase a red dress pin for $2 and receive the shopping pass.
    5. Saunter over to M&M Special Events rent something RED and a portion of the proceeds will go back to the American Heart Association. Please contact an M&M Specialist at 214-350-5373 for your renting needs!

Wondering how you can help? Adopt your neighborhood stores of one or all four of the above and thank them as often as you can. That’s it! It’s as simple and fun as saying thank you! All of our retail partners are making a huge difference this month – from both an awareness standpoint as well as a financial contribution and we want to thank them.

Once you say thank you – please send Lindsey Landman (lindsey.landman@heart.org) an email letting us know the details (date and location). Thank you for saying thank you!
