Kirkland's, the Nashville-based specialty retailer of home décor products, is joining the fight against heart disease and stroke by supporting the American Heart Association, a global force for longer, healthier lives. The American Heart Association's national fundraising campaign, Life Is Why We Give™, which aims to inspire consumers to honor their reasons to live healthier, longer lives by giving, is proud to have the support and participation of Kirkland's this summer.
"Heart disease and stroke affects so many of our loved ones," states Steve Woodard, CEO of Kirkland's. "We're thrilled to once again support the American Heart Association this summer to help build longer, healthier lives for all. We love being able to provide shoppers with the opportunity to make an impact with our incredible associates who are dedicated to this life-saving campaign."
From August 1st through September 11th, all 381 of Kirkland's stores across the country, and through Kirkland's online store, will provide shoppers the opportunity to donate the American Heart Association. This is the third point-of-sale campaign by Kirkland's that benefits the American Heart Association's Life is Why We Give campaign.
"We're honored to have the unwavering support of Kirkland's once again as we work together to create healthier communities everywhere. Life really is why this campaign is so impactful," said Annie Thornhill, Executive Director of the Greater Nashville American Heart Association.
Donations through the Life is Why We Give campaign - no matter the amount - allow the Association to implement initiatives such as:
- Fund research that can improve the health outcomes of heart and stroke patients;
- Train more than 2.5 million high school students in CPR annually;
- Support the work of local entrepreneurs and organizations working to improve health outcomes in under-resourced communities.
