For those super subscribers and equally-as-awesome J-14ers who picked up the new March issue (on newsstands now :) -- you may know me as J-14's Body Buzz babe. As much as I love Valentine's Day, February is important for an even bigger reason: it's American Heart Month!
I remember becoming interested in the cause when I was a freshman in high school and found out that heart disease is the leading killer of women in the US. OMG. I know. When I heard about this cool new teen-friendly site the American Heart Association made, I wanted to share it with you guys, since it's about time we all start thinking about that heart... instead of the chocolate-filled variety.
To get you the important scoop, J-14.com and the American Heart Association are giving one heart healthy J-14er a Be the Beat Prize Pack including a red 8GB iPod Nano, $50 iTunes gift card, and a bunch of American Heart Association goodies and school supplies like pens, notebooks, and stickers! Just visit the Be The Beat website to read about your heart health. Send an email with two ways that you can be a heart hero with the subject line Be The Beat Contest to firstname.lastname@example.org! We'll publish the winner's response on J-14.com and you'll win the awesome prize pack listed above.
Read up, Body Buzzers and J-14ers, and please pass along the info to the mamas, grammies, aunts, and other awesome ladies in your life!
Hearts & Kisses,
