Not only is February Heart Month, Valentine’s Day is coming! If you haven’t already found the perfect token of your love and appreciation for the women in your life, then think about giving them a gift that not only improves their lives now, but also invests in their future!
The United Soybean Board has teamed up with Hollywood jewelry designer, gorjana, to bring you a sleek and stylish Heart to Heart charm necklace. All sales proceeds benefit WomenHeart, the only national organization dedicated to promoting women’s heart health through advocacy, community education and patient support. “We are excited to partner with soybean farmers across America for such a good cause,” says Gorjana Reidel, designer of the Heart to Heart necklace.
Dangling from a sterling silver 18″ chain, this beautiful charm was inspired by the delicate shape of the soy bean. “Worn alone or layered with other pieces, the necklace is a fashionable and meaningful addition to the jewlery wardrobe of women, young to old,” claims fashionista, Gorjana.
It’s only $45, and did we mention that 100% of that money goes directly to increasing awareness about a heart healthy diet, research and education about women’s heart health?
But why soy? Apparently, nutrition (including soy) plays a huge role in heart health. From the Heart to Heart campaign press release:
Obesity, high cholesterol and high blood pressure have a significant negative impact on heart health. Dietary interventions, such as soy, may help control these risk factors and prevent heart disease. Soyfoods are recognized for their role in an overall heart-healthy diet because they are often relatively low in saturated fats and high in polyunsaturated fat (“good” fats), contain zero grams of trans fat per serving and are cholesterol free.
“Heart to Heart is a stylish daily reminder for women that healthy foods, such as soyfoods, can make the difference for a heart-healthy life,” said Steve Poole, Director of Human Health & Nutrition Communications, United Soybean Board.
Adds Lisa M. Tate, WomenHeart CEO, “WomenHeart strives to educate women about the importance of a heart healthy diet. This generous donation from the United Soybean Board will help further our efforts in creating a heart-healthy America.”
Of course, a healthy diet is important for heart health for women and men all over the world, so don’t be shy in ordering your gift no matter where you live. Just choose express delivery (or write a nice I.O.U. in the card) because Valentine’s Day is this Saturday!
