When made the right way, smoothies can be a great pre- or post-workout snack or breakfast—and now drinking up can also help make America healthier.
This Saturday at participating Jamba Juice stores, $1 from every smoothie sold will be donated to Team Up for a Healthy America to purchase athletic equipment for underfunded and needy schools. That's right, all you have to do is buy your favorite Jamba Juice drink, and you'll be joining numerous groups, organizations, and individuals (including tennis star Venus Williams) to work toward a healthier future for our nation's children. And if you donate another $1, you'll get a coupon booklet worth $10 savings on Jamba Juice products. Sounds win-win to us.

If you can't make it to a Jamba Juice this weekend, you can still support the cause. Just visit myhealthpledge.com and take the free Team Up for a Healthier America pledge. Each week the site will feature a new, easy pledge such as "I pledge to take the stairs when I can." All you have to do is hit the "I pledge" button, and a dollar will go toward schools in need. Seriously, it's that simple. So what are you waiting for?
