The Heart and Stroke Foundation is back again this year with the Heart and Stroke Calendar, and your chance to win every day of the year.You can even win 2 calendars here on my blog, one to keep and one to give. There will be 5 winners right here.
The Heart and Stroke Foundation is very near and dear to me for a number of reasons. My father who died 10 years ago this week had issues with his heart for years, in fact he lived through 7 heart attacks! My uncle died of cardiac arrest very young at the age of 42. Then 3 weeks ago I started having chest pains, in fact while I was at Blissdom Canada, I was sitting next to my friend Theresa Albert as we got our nails done and was telling her about this reoccurring pain, that seemed to come every time I exerted myself even a little and sometimes I didn’t even have to exert myself much to get it going. Theresa was more than a little upset with me. She told me to get it checked immediately….like leave conference and high tail it to doctor. Well, I went right after conference. I was ever so thankful it wasn’t my heart this time, by I am over the age of 40, overweight, and have a strong family history of heart disease. So it could happen.
This organization does great work, that does a lot to help in the fight of this the number #1 killer of women.
The sale of calendars goes to a great cause, and when you buy you can win too, so that’s a bonus. How about buying and giving? They make a great frugal gift at $25.
There are THREE chances to win cash every day of the year. That is up from last year when there was only one. Every winning calendar number is automatically re-entered into the draw so you can win again and again. Plus, there are the Funtastic Friday’s $10,000 draw,the Month-end Madness $100,000 CASH PRIZE draw – and the special Monthly Holiday Jackpots, worth a cool $25,000!
You can help the Heart and Stroke Foundation to “Pay it Forward” by gifting a Heart&Stroke Calendar Lottery to someone who touches your life.
