Promoting Healthy Hearts For Hurting People By Donating Blood
Every year about 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States. That’s 1 in 4 people who will develop heart disease in their lifetime! The American Heart Association has been working to prevent heart disease and strokes for more than 90 years, with leading-edge scientific research at the core of their efforts.
In addition to its' research work, the American Heart Association has various programs in place to promote healthy living and sensible precautions to protect your heart from being exposed to these diseases. Their Healthy for Good ™ program is a revolutionary movement to inspire you to create lasting change in your health and your life, one small step at a time. The approach is simple: Eat smart. Add color. Move more. Be well.
While taking precautionary measures is a great way to protect your own hear, there are ways that you can also step out to serve others. For those who may not have the best heart, times of trauma or tragedy can call for blood transfusions. Hospitals count on blood donations to fuel the healing processes of those effected by various diseases all over the country.
This week, Sevenly’s Healthy Heart Collection is giving back to the American Heart Association in hopes of promoting healthy lifestyles, and healthy hearts around the world. While purchasing a piece from our collection provides free outfitting to American Heart Association blood drive volunteers, we also urge you to give back by donating blood in this time of need.
Over the past month, the world has experienced unprecedented natural disasters. It’s times like this when hospitals greatly appreciate any and all blood donations that could be used to save a life.
Save a life. Protect a Heart. Be Well.
And wear and share the story with some of the world’s best “heart art” that supports a cause that matters.
