For a minimum donation of $40 – with 100 percent of all proceeds benefitting the American Heart Association, shoppers will receive the Shop With Heart card which provides two great ways to save: 20 percent off regularly priced merchandise at participating retailers and patron’s choice of a complimentary appetizer or dessert with the purchase of an entrée at participating restaurants. Cards are available online now at www.shopwithheart.org or by phone at (844) 210-4541 through April 10.  Cards may also be purchased at any of the participating retailers starting April 10th.
