"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Help fight heart disease and get a chance to win a pearl bracelet

My friend Tanyetta is sponsoring a contest through Cheerios® Circle of Helping Hearts and Sisters Saving Hearts grant program. On her blog she says "In America, heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death among women, particularly among African-American women, who are at the greatest risk for cardiovascular disease than any other ethnic group.

Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond to help fight the battle against heart disease or have you given your heart and soul to save others?

Cheerios Sisters Saving Hearts, a grassroots grant-giving initiative, is searching for heart-inspiring people who help eradicate this curable disease.

The program will honor five heart-inspiring individuals or service organizations that have dedicated their time, talents and passion to fight heart disease in their local communities with a $5,000 grant to the charity of their choice."

Head on over to Tanyetta's blog to read about the contest and enter it.

I'm definitely going to go over and check it out! Heart disease was partially responsible for the loss of my great-grandmother.

I never received your reply to my request (stupid email-chomping inbox), but thanks for letting me know that you're going to do that thing I mentioned! :) Love ya' bunches!
