Fresh Water Pearl Bracelet giveaway

Now through January 2010 you can help women that don't have adequate healthcare. Simply by entering the code found inside Cheerios boxes you can help provide cholesterol screening! For every code entered they will donate 1 dollar to women in need! That is awesome! Heart disease is the number one cause of death in women and cholesterol screening can help change that, through early detection and diet change.

I have 3 cute, adorable fresh water pearl bracelets to give away to help raise awareness! Simply check out your cheerios boxes and if you have boxes with codes enter them here
www.cheerioshelpinghearts.com. Or check out the site and tell me what you think. Tell me why helping women in need is important to you. Tell about someone you love battling high cholesterol and how they are doing it. Or post your numbers-ACK. Link back to my post. Leave me a comment and that's your entry. It's simple! You can enter daily, in fact please do. I am only taking comments on THIS post but will try to link back to this post on my daily writing.


I really want to help women fight heart disease, it took my one remaining Grandparent, the only one I ever knew. I miss her. Lets work together to end this disease. Miss you Gram!

  1. I did not know that you could do that with a Cheerios box. I am not sure if I have any right now.

    For me I want to help women become more aware of their bodies. Going to the doctor is very important for check-ups. This helps them find out what is going on with them. I just wish that everyone could be able to do this task because of money. I wish it was free to everyone.

    Count me in for a awesome giveaway.

  2. I didn't know that about the Cheerios box!

    I think word of mouth is one of the best ways to get women screened. Seeing it on TV or reading about it isn't the same as having a friend tell you how important it is and what you need to do to get screened.

    So if we all keep talking about it, we can spread the word over the globe!

  5. Unfortunately my Cheerios box came from Costco before they started this, so I'm out for this part of it.

    My cholesterol? Not great but under 200. The triglycerides are high, which is good. LDL is below where it needs to be. And HDL is ok but not great. I think the overall was 192. Stupid doctor refused to give me the actual report, just told me the numbers were "ok" until I pressed the nurse for details. I'm never going back there again. :)

  9. I have no O's, but I do have thoughts on helping women in need. I think that women are so often wrapped up in caring for the other people in their lives, that they can slight themselves in that department. Preventive medicine can make such a huge difference, and making women aware of symptoms and signs they should watch for that hint at a host of illnesses is so important.

    Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway!

  10. My Cherrios just says I can lower my cholesterol in 6 weeks.
    Heart Disease and the way it effects so many women is terrifying. Women need to really be a step ahead. Exercise, eat right, and see your doctor.

    The more people talk about it, the more I think people will recognize how important it is. We just need to keep spreading the word!

  12. I don't have any cheerios at the moment.

    However, I did just start a healthy heart quest this week and have been changing our eating habits. It's important to educate women that heart disease is not just a man's problem.

    My cholesterol is ok, but could definitely be better....it's my blood pressure that is making me change our way of eating.

    Love the giveaway!!
