C'mon Canada: Pucker Up & Kiss W. Brett Wilson For The Heart and Stroke Foundation

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 6, 2012) -

Editor's Note: There is one video and 1 photo associated with this release.

To celebrate Valentine's Day and support the Heart and Stroke Foundation during Heart Month, Canadians are invited to plant a virtual kiss on W. Brett Wilson's cheek through a specially created animated feature on his website. From now until February 15th, Brett will donate $1 for each "web kiss" he gets - up to a maximum of $10,000.

Heart disease and stroke take one in three Canadians before their time and is the #1 killer of women. Often associated with the elderly, these diseases affect people of all ages. Babies are born with heart defects and they can have strokes, and millions of adults are at risk for heart disease and stroke. The Heart and Stroke Foundation is dedicated to improving the health and quality of life for all Canadians by funding research, health promotion, and health education.

"Anyone with a heart will be touched by heart disease and stroke at some point in their lives - either personally or through a loved one," says Wilson. "This creative and fun initiative is designed to help Canadians play a role in eliminating heart disease and stroke. Besides, who doesn't like giving - and getting - kisses around Valentine's Day?"

Anyone who wants to show some love to one of Canada's best known philanthropists and support this important cause can "kiss" Brett at http://www.WBrettWilson.ca. Just open Brett's head - yes, open his head - hold down the "V" key to find the ruby red heart, click on the heart, and watch the site transform. Then click on Brett's cheeks to kiss him. Only two kisses allowed per day! The Twitter hashtag for the campaign is #KissForHeart.

As part of the fun, Brett will randomly select 25 lucky "kissers" to win a Valentine's Day prize pack valued at approximately $250 including jewellery from Hillberg & Berk and perfume from The 7 Virtues. The talented web team behind the animation is ZGM Collaborative Marketing.
