Subway and Diet Coke and The Heart Truth. Can you handle the truth? Oh and a giveaway, too.

Subway and Diet Coke Heart Truth

Disclosure: All prizes listed in this post were provided for free.

Ok, I’m going to stop nattering on about my book for a moment to start nattering on about The Heart Truth® campaign run by SUBWAY and Diet Coke. February is American Heart Month which is kinda important because heart disease is the number one killer of women in the US. A quick Googling pulled up this article from 2007 that says, “Approximately 40% of all women who die are struck by heart disease or stroke. More women die this way than from the total of all cancers, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).”

My grandfather died of a stroke, and most of my aunts and uncles have high blood pressure, so my own heart health is rather important to me. I like this whole “living” thing, even if it occasionally comes with chronic headaches and weight regain. To lower your risk of heart disease you should exercise regularly and eat more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Which I know is easier said than done. If only celery tasted like cupcakes. *sigh*

Here’s the low-down on what The Heart Truth® campaign is about:

During the month of February every time you visit a SUBWAY restaurant you can trigger a donation from Diet Coke to heart health programs by using your smart phone to “check-in” at the virtual heart flag nearby using Facebook places or FourSquare. Donations will be triggered until we hit our grand total of a $100,000 consumer generated donation to heart health programs. Or, you can visit dietcoke.com/hearttruth to capture “heart flags” and plant them on your blog or Facebook page—these actions can trigger donations* and help spread awareness for heart health!

Subway has also given me a gift pack to give away to a lucky reader. It includes:

  • A $50 gift card to cover a one-month gym membership
  • A $25 SUBWAY Card
  • A pedometer
  • The new 2011 Diet Coke pin (which comes in two pieces so you can give half to your friend, just like those old BFF necklaces!)
  • A Diet Coke Heart Truth notebook (which I gotta say is rather sleekly designed)

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment below telling me who in your life has the biggest heart (metaphorically, not literally, because that’s a medical problem to be taken seriously). A winner will be randomly selected. Only one entry per email address. Only US residents are eligible. Giveaway ends on Monday, February 28 at 11:59pm EST.

Definitely my grandparents. I tried to decide which of them is the one with the biggest heart, but after 55 years of marriage, they pretty much function as a single unit. Anyway, they win it in my life because of their seemingly endless capacity to love, and give freely of their time, money, and energy to all of their friends and family. They are two of my favorite people and I am proud to say that I wouldn’t be who I am today without Grammy and Pappy. <3

There are many big-hearted people in my life, but I have particular appreciation for a friend.

Both her parents, her husband’s parents, and her young child are facing very serious medical diagnoses. While supporting all these folks, she also brought us a hot meal when the baby came home from NICU, watched the kids when I was in the hospital, and helped us navigate the NICU experience.

I really appreciate her compassion even in the midst of circumstances that would unhinge most people.

My 80 year old mother has the biggest heart for children. She was a teacher for over 40 years and always taught Sunday School and still help out with Sunday School every Sunday. Her heart for children is wonderful. She is in excellent health so we were all shocked when she had a heart attack this summer. She has recovered well and is currently doing well.

I think my husband has the biggest heart. He just shows his love in so many ways – making sure that he kisses me goodbye and tells me he loves me in the morning, with the way he cries (and denies it quite vehemently) at TV programs, and how he is always covered with cat hair because he was hugging the cat.

And he gave me the best valentine’s gift ever – a nice sweater so I could stay warm when he wasn’t there to keep me warm.

My mom has the biggest heart possible. She treats everyone, especially those needing a hand, like family. Every Christmas, she “adopts” numerous families (secretly) and delivers wrapped presents and boxes of food to their houses when they aren’t home. She is a crafter and makes cancer caps, baby blankets and cat beds for her favorite charities. She lives a simple life, and everything she has she would give to someone who needed it more. I am so glad she’s my mom, I’ve learned so much from her!

My best friend, Jennifer, has the biggest heart ever. She has genuine concern for everyone including strangers. A few months ago she and her husband noticed a homeless person sleeping under a bridge several times over the course of a week. Lots of people would feel bad for a second and keep on going, but she and her husband went to Walmart, bought him a bunch of food, blankets, clothes, etc and left it for him in a big box. They did this just for him, without any fanfare or accolades for themselves. I think a lot of times I think about doing stuff like this when I see people in need, but then I don’t follow through. She did.

My mother in law has the biggest heart of anyone I know…she somehow manages to squeeze 28 hours a day of helping people into 24 and she’s always willing to take on more. She makes meals for her in-law who are dealing with dementia and helps to pay for home aids to help, she does my laundry, her laundry, anyone’s laundry..she drives me places because I just had surgery, she babysits her grandson at the drop of a hat, she watches our cat…she’s always there to do things for others when they’re unable to…and I am grateful for her!

She continues to volunteer at the nursing home now that our parents are no longer alive and provides comfort to many of the residents there.

Unquestionably, it’s my mom. She works full time taking care of older people, as an occupational therapist in a nursing home. She works with them to keep them as independent as possible, so they can maintain good quality of life as long as they can. I’ve seen her go out of her way, time and again, spending extra time (and often her own money) to get patients the equipment they need…or even just to bring them a book or a movie they might be interested in. She really listens to what they have to say, and is a bright spot in their lives.

And then she comes home and does the same thing for her family and friends! She takes care of everyone and is the most thoughtful person I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful to have her in my life; I hope I can be even half the woman she is. :)

Despite her stern demeanor, my mother had a generous spirit and a kind heart. She would take care of anyone in need — even people she did not particularly like. Our relationship was often strained, but when my partner and I went through a very difficult time (we lost a baby), her big heart and kind intentions shone, and we made amends. Unfortunately, soon after our reconciliation, my mother was diagnosed with cancer — 6 months later (this past December), she passed away. I grieve this loss, but I will always remember her generosity and caring.

My (now gone to Heaven) mom… she, though making not much above minimum wage and working her butt off, still gave to those with less than her, fed the neighborhood “Welfare kids” when their moms were too busy getting drunk or shooting up or for days with boyfriends. She cooked extra to share. She visited the sick. She collected money for cancer society and la leche league. She would give to whoever asked. Still amazes me. I’m nowhere near as big-hearted….not like her. I miss her big heart….and smile…

I would have to say my daughter has the biggest heart. For a 5 year old she is surprisingly sensitive to what people really care about. She regularly asks adults about a previous injury (“How is your toe today?”) or says nice things like, “I really like your hair cut.” She says it with a sincerity that makes adults stop and stare at her, touched by the fact that she’s asked after them. I hope she keeps this quality.

My Dad. He helps everyone in the family, runs three businesses and still manages to be the perfect Dad. My hero!

Absolutely my husband has the biggest heart – he can’t say no to any request for help.

My dog has the biggest heart of anyone I know – he loves everyone he meets, regardless of appearance, economic status, age, etc. He can, however, be swayed by the presence of food.

the people with the biggest hearts are my parents. After they finished raising their three children they became foster parents. They adopted the first two kids to walk through their door and currently have three foster children (in addition to the two adopted). Five kids, ages 15 yrs to 17 months….talk about heart!

That would have to be my 16 year old Golden Retriever Aspen. He’s the sweetest dog in the world…he’s all heart!
