How you can make a difference this #HeartMonth

DYK that February is #HeartMonth? This year makes the month extra special for me because I lost my Dad to a heart attack. Now, more than ever, I have come to realize the importance of being heathier and happier. While my family went through an incredibly difficult time, we also understood the importance of giving to a good cause. Instead of flowers or gifts of condolence, we asked our friends and family to make a donation in my Dad’s name to Heart & Stroke. When I heard that this incredible foundation collaborated with iconic Canadian brand Roots Canada to help spread an important message, I knew that it was important to share it with you all.

This is something that obviously means a lot to me personally and to countless Canadians from coast-to-coast. A simple donation and wearing the beautiful new items will make the biggest difference in so many lives…

“In Canada, someone dies from heart disease or a stroke every seven minutes. For as much progress as we’ve made in medical breakthroughs, prevention and treatment, Heart & Stroke recognizes that the work is far from done. By simply donning a toque and bracelet (images attached), you can make a huge difference in Heart & Stroke’s continued efforts to decrease the incidences of heart disease and stroke amongst Canadians and increase the number of medical breakthroughs.”

One of the most important things people can do to help that they may not have thought of before is to quit smoking if they are an avid smoker. This is because it reduces the toxic secondary smoke in the air as well as being beneficial for the smoker themselves. Switching to something like Oden’s Extreme Portion snus to stop smoke production and begin cutting down on tobacco intake is a good idea in making a big difference to the quality of air and health in the world.
