Thank A Mom, Help Women’s Hearts

AHA-momIn case you haven’t been tipped off at the supermarket, the drugstore, or your local Hallmark retailer in the past few days—Mother’s Day is Sunday. Quick, to the card aisle! And also, send an e-card! While I’m a huge advocate of paper cards with handwritten notes in them for every occasion, I love this promotion from the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women and Macy’s. For every e-card sent, Macy’s will donate $5 to Go Red For Women, one of our favorite women’s health advocacy organizations.

All you have to do is go to the “Thank A Mom” Facebook page, select the Go Red For Women movement (they’re one of five participating organizations), and then create your card. You can use one of the preloaded designs or upload your own, and write a personal note. If your mom is super cool like my mom and is on Facebook, you can post it directly to her wall. Or you can just enter her e-mail address. You can send up to 10 cards a day, so be sure to send one to all your friends and relatives who are moms, too!

Happy Mother’s Day from the LHJ Health Ladies!
