Shop Stella And Dot And Support The American Heart Association

In one month I will be running the Lawyers Have Heart 10K. Summer racing is not my favorite thing, and this is far from my favorite race (although there is a new course this year!), but the cause it supports really is close to my heart.

A little more than four years ago my Dad passed away unexpectedly from sudden heart failure. He was active and seemed healthy, but heart disease is known for being a silent killer. Before that, I had my own scare with deep vein thrombosis, which puts me at a higher risk for stroke. Add that family history to that medical history and throw in a stressful, sedentary desk job and you’ll understand why I take heart health so seriously.

While a portion of my Lawyers Have Heart registration fee goes to support the American Heart Association, I’ve also set up a donations page through the Lawyers Have Heart website. You can donate here or via the link in my sidebar. Thanks to Megan, I’m also doing a special fundraising Stella & Dot trunk show.

I love stella & dot jewelry–it’s fashionable and affordable and comes in styles that fit every personality. Megan has generously agreed to donate 20% of sales from my trunk show, which will be open through June 2.

Here are a few things I’ve got my eyes on.

So, if you didn’t get what you wanted for Mother’s Day, or if you are just ready for some new jewelry for summer, you can shop online here or join the Facebook event here if you need more time to decide. 

Do you know how to take care of your heart?

Do you have a favorite piece of jewelry?

  2. What a great way to get the word out about heart disease! The cause is something near and dear to my heart (haha!) since I work with people coming out of cardiac surgery everyday.

  3. Great way to honor your dad. I plan to run this as well if I am up to it. I am not going to register until the last minute but will do so through your page if I do. Hope to see you there.

  4. Love this! Red wine is good heart medicine. My nana used to say when a doctor asked her if she took heart medicine, “yea, I have a glass of red wine every night.” She was 100. 🙂 Definitely will check out the trunk show!

    I hug my heart every day, constantly every day too! 🙂

    My favorite piece of jewelry is my giraffe necklace. It’s two giraffes intertwining their necks!

    What a wonderful cause to support! So many people seem to take heart health for granted. What a wonderful cause and important message. I love bracelets.

    Have a wonderful weekend friend! xoxo
