American Heart Association Launches 10-Day “Shop with Heart Card” with Houston Retailers and Restaurants

Local Businesses and Restaurants Spread the Love to Raise Funds and Awareness through April 26-May 5th

The American Heart Association (AHA) announces the release of its sixth annual Shop With Heart Card, presented by the Heart Guild of Houston.

The card is available for a minimum donation of $50 with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the American Heart Association, an organization whose mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.

“Joining the fight against heart disease and stroke is that much easier with the Shop With Heart Card,” said Jessica Willey, Shop With Heart Card chair. “While cardholders are out supporting local establishments, they also have the chance to support AHA and make a real difference.”

Shop With Heart Cards are available for purchase online at and will be available for purchase at participating retailers beginning April 26th.

The 10-day shopping event, which runs April 26th through May 5th, gives shoppers 20 percent off regularly-priced merchandise and services at participating retailers, and unique to the Shop With Heart Card, special offerings at participating restaurants with the purchase of an entrée.

In support of this great cause, hundreds of Houston’s finest retailers and restaurants have signed up to participate this year, including:

  • Kuhl-Linscomb
  • Saint Bernard
  • Lam Bespoke
  • Events
  • Joann’s
  • French Cuff Boutique
  • The Palm Restaurant
  • Stuart Weitzman
  • Flemings Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar
  • Three Doors
  • Tony’s
  • Tootsies
  • Bollo Woodfired Pizza

Participating retailers and restaurants were carefully selected by The Heart Guild to ensure a quality experience for cardholders. A full listing of participating retailers and restaurants is available online and in the annual Merchant Card Directory.

With a diverse list of participating retailers including home décor, local boutiques and various beauty salons, the entire family can enjoy this 10-day event to give back by shopping in celebration of spring events such as weddings, graduations, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

The Shop With Heart Card offers more than retail discounts and complimentary bites; this cause hits home for many Americans as heart disease and stroke are the number one and number five killers in both men and women.

“Nearly every person can think of a loved one, friend or acquaintance that has been affected by heart disease or stroke,” said Roz Pactor, 2019 Shop With Heart Card honoree. “The Shop With Heart Card gives Houstonians the chance to do good and support something bigger while they are simply out shopping or headed for a bite to eat. It starts a conversation and gives people the opportunity to educate others and spread awareness about the organization and its mission.”
