Jiffy Lube Maintenance Partners For Life Campaign and Giveaway

I am not a mechanic by any means of the word.  When something goes wrong with our car, I have no idea about any of it.  We just recently got our brakes fixed and I couldn't tell you how a rotor works or where the actual brake pad is.  The only thing I know about a car is how to put gas in and where the oil, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid goes.  To share a story with you: Almost a year ago on Memorial Day weekend, my girls and I were leaving church and heading over to the cemetery to place flowers on grandmother's grave.  As we were turning into the cemetery, there came a car barreling up on us very quickly.  Before I had time to react, we were already hit, hit hard from behind.  Thankfully, my girls were not hurt and I was more shaken then anything.  My oldest was VERY upset as to be expected, little one really had no clue as to what was really going on.  The driver, which turned out to be an older lady in her late 60's or early 70's, said she pressed on the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal, which was why the accident occurred.  Our car ended up being totaled, the whole back was smashed in and could not be fixed.  We say to this day if it hadn't been for the spare tire sitting in the trunk in the spot that it was, that my girls would have been crushed, she was going at least 50mph if not a little more when she hit us.  I hit the steering wheel, but was not injured.  The tow truck took our car to our house and everyday for about a month, I was reminded of what had happened.  Looking at the car, how my front seat was all twisted, the rear view mirror had fallen off, made me realize that day that God and his angels were definitely on our side.  

Taking care of your car is really important.  Regular maintenance and oil changes are really vital to how your car acts and runs.  I have trusted Jiffy Lube to service my car for many years and can't imagine taking my car anywhere else.  They have great service and great options to keep your car running smoothly and sufficiently.  Jiffy Lube is in it's third year of running it's Maintenance Partner's For Life campaign- which is an absolutely wonderful program that raises funds and awareness for the American Heart Association's Go Red For Women Movement.  Nearly 2,400 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day- an average death of one every 37 seconds according to the AHA.  The Maintenance Partners For Life campaign emphasizes the importance of maintaining a healthy heart and a healthy vehicle and seeks $1 million to help fight heart disease.  Customers at participating Jiffy Lube centers across the US can support this cause with a donation of $3 receiving in return a Jiffy Lube Maintenance Partners For Life savings book that contains heart healthy recipes as well as $100 in savings from Jiffy Lube.  100 percent of the funds will benefit local AHA chapters in the communities in which the funds are raised.  People can also donate online at www.JiffyLubeGoesRed.com   Jiffy Lube has raised $2.3 million for the cause since 2008.  As of March 14, Jiffy Lube has raised it's goal of over 1 million dollars for the Go Red for Women Movement.  NOTE:This campaign is currently over.
