My family at King Features and Fleischer Studios have been working with me on a project that is very dear to my heart and I wanted to share it with all my wonderful fans.
Some months back, Woman’s Day asked me to join their campaign to create awareness about heart disease — the biggest killer of women. For more than a decade, the magazine has been one of the most prominent leaders in promoting a heart healthy lifestyle.
I kept thinking, what can I do? I’m only one li’l person! Then it hit me! In my dreams, I’ve always wanted to fly. To soar. You know, like an eagle. Or a plane. Or a superhero. So I asked my family at King Features and they created a three-page custom comic strip adventure exclusively for the Woman’s Day campaign starring … MOI … as the Heroine of Hearts! Don’t I look marvelous?!?
That’s right! You know, I’ve starred in comic strips before during my career, but never in anything quite like this. This comic strip is oh-so-fun and cool and yet it speaks about a very serious health issue for women. In it, I’m battling the evil villain Dark Heart … and helping … well, I don’t want to spoil it. You’ll just have to check it out yourself. It’s in the March issue of Woman’s Day on newsstands now. Pick up a copy today or, if you want to read it online, click here.
Oh, another cool thing? The wonderful team at Woman’s Day invited me to walk the red carpet tonight at their big event – the 2017 Red Dress Awards, honoring those who outstanding people who have made significant contributions in the fight against heart disease. Stay “tooned” for updates at WomansDay.com, including news about the star-studded event!
Finally, to celebrate this amazing partnership, King Features and Woman’s Day will make donations to several women’s heart health organizations.
So, my friends, keep your heart booping along by living a healthy lifestyle. You’ll discover there are lots of vital tips in the March Woman’s Day! Boop-Oop-a-Doop!
