In the run-up to Valentine''s Day, it has been announced that a German model will use her fame to promote women''s heart health.
Heidi Klum, best known for her work as the host of Project Runway - a show aiming to find and promote talented potential designers - is once again taking a role of a health advocate.
Through her contract with Diet Coke she will participate for the second year in a program to raise awareness about women''s heart health called "Heart Truth."
The program is run by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, and Klum has designed a special red dress charm for the promotion. Diet Coke will give away 10 copies of the jewelry, worth $3,000 each, according to promomagazine.com.
The charm, featuring rubies and diamonds, will emphasize the need for women to get educated about the risk of heart disease.
Caren Pasquale Seckler, group director for low-calorie colas at Coca-Cola North America says that "Heidi Klum''s star power helped the ''heart truth'' message reach millions of women last year, and with Heidi''s help, we hope to continue to keep the spotlight on this crucial issue."
Klum has been active in the fashion industry since 1992. Her credits include Victoria''s Secret, H&M, and Liz Claiborne. She has appeared on the covers of Vogue, ELLE, and Marie Claire.
