LBX Supports American Heart Association’s “Life is Why We Give” Campaign in February 2020

Throughout the month of February, the American Heart Association (AHA) is asking the nation to rally together and donate for all the reasons that make life precious. For the fourth year in a row, LBX Company, Lexington, Kentucky will support the Life is Why We Give™ campaign by giving $500 to the AHA for every Link-Belt® hydraulic excavator, forestry machine or material handler retailed in February in North America. LBX is a national program supporter for this campaign.

LBX is also challenging our North American dealers to support their local AHA chapters. During February, many Link-Belt excavator dealers will again participate in a special campaign that encourages both employees and customers to get involved locally with the American Heart Association through charitable donations or volunteering their time.

Your local AHA chapter can help you get started with ideas for increasing engagement and establishing volunteer programs that will have a positive impact on your community throughout the year. To find your local chapter, go to www.heart.org. To learn more about company promotions and special Life Is Why We Give™ events, please visit Life Is Why We Give. Donations can also be made directly to the American Heart Association by visiting www.heart.org. Donations will help benefit research, public education and community health initiatives of the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association.

About the American Heart Association
The American Heart Association is devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke – the two leading causes of death in the world. We team with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat these diseases. The Dallas-based association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. To learn more or to get involved, call 1-800-AHA-USA1, visit heart.org or call any of our offices around the country.

About Life is Why We Give
In February, the American Heart Association is urging Americans to unite in support of healthy living by participating in campaigns led by AHA supporters around the country – including making a donation at participating retailers, purchasing specialty products to benefit the association, attending fundraising events and more. Life Is Why We Give allows consumers to think about their reasons to live healthier, longer lives and to give in honor of those reasons. Too long, heart disease and stroke have stolen our precious moments. In February, we fight back together and affirm that we’re more powerful than these diseases… because everyone has a reason to live a longer, healthier life… and that reason is why we give.
