Heart Disease

Did you know that an estimated 80,000,000 American adults have one or more types of Cardiovascular diseases? It is one of the most widespread diseases and killers in the United States. Now Chiquita, Fresh Express, and the American Heart Association have teamed up to spread the word about heart disease. The companies are joining the American Heart Association’s public awareness campaign, Go Red for Women, by donating 10 cents from each purchase of specially marked salad blends and Chiquita Fruit Bites to the American Heart Association during the month of February.
The campaign will also use Chiquita’s Fresh Funds, a consumer loyalty program started last year to encourage people to eat to more fresh fruits and vegetables by earning points for purchasing products. Products involved include Chiquita Fruit Bites varieties and Fresh Express salads and vegetables. You can support the program by signing up for the Fresh Funds program and donating your points to the American Heart Association where they will be doubled in the month of February. You can share your story with the Go Red for Women campaign and tell about your choice to live a healthy life. When you do this you will automatically receive 40 fresh funds points. Along with sharing your story, you can also upload your image, join their myspace group, and refer friends. This is a very worthy cause, and I strongly encourage everyone to sign up for the program and upload their pictures to help spread the word about the dangers of heart disease and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle.
