OK… They’re just killing me. Today’s email includes an action alert from “Paper Doll Katie” of the American Heart Association. On February 12, the HEART for Women Act (“to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases in women”) will be reintroduced to Congress. “Paper Doll Katie” wants us to contact our representatives and urge them to co-sponsor the bill. Here’s the end of the alert:
And to thank you AGAIN for being the heart of our grassroots, you’ll be able to download a fabulous NEW outfit for me after you act!
Remember: Taking action for healthy hearts is always in fashion. Keep an eye out for another Heart Month action alert and downloadable outfit next week!
