HOUSTON, April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Happy, healthy hearts start at home, which is why Stage Stores is proud to give back to the community by teaming up with the American Heart Association to raise awareness and funds in the fight against heart disease, the leading cause of death among women in the United States. Through Stage's Community Counts program, store guests will have the opportunity to make a donation at the checkout counter to the American Heart Association during the month of April.
According to the American Heart Association, Mondays are the weekday when most heart attacks occur. Stage Stores wants to make a difference – every Monday in April, guests will receive $5 off a $25 or more purchase when they say "heart" at checkout. Stage also will donate a dollar for each Facebook or Instagram post in April mentioning #bringhearthome. In addition, donating guests will receive a 40 percent off Community Counts savings pass.
For each dollar donated, Stage Stores' guests will receive a sticker allowing them to write the name of a loved one they'd like to honor on behalf of their donation. Each sticker will be displayed in-store.
"Our guests are the heart of the communities we serve, and our homes are where preventing heart disease starts. We are proud to work with the American Heart Association to help create a world of longer, healthier lives," said Michael Glazer, President and CEO of Stage Stores. "We invite our guests to join us in saving lives by supporting the American Heart Association in our stores – every heart helps!"
Donations to the American Heart Association help pave the way for advancements in preventing, treating or even eradicating heart disease and stroke. American Heart Association research has led to the development of pacemakers, surgeries, drugs and many other lifesaving breakthroughs.
According to the American Heart Association, 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases can be prevented.

- Maintaining a healthy weight
