Kristi Yamaguchi Chairs Christmas Seals

More good works from Kristi Yamaguchi: She'll be chairing the 2008 American Lung Association Christmas Seals Campaign "in an effort to help raise funds in support of the organization's mission: to prevent lung disease and promote lung health."

From the release:

"Throughout my skating career, my doctor always stressed the importance of an annual influenza vaccination to maintain my health. Today, as a mother of two young children, I realize my whole family needs to be immunized against influenza to help protect their respiratory health. It's a responsibility I take very seriously and that's why I have joined forces with the American Lung Association in this important initiative."
Over the next month, more than 12 million Americans will receive a letter from Kristi along with the familiar decorative holiday stamps, urging them to open their hearts to the Lung Association this holiday season.
"I know many families have been affected by the economy, but I hope those who are able to contribute will carry on the Christmas Seals tradition and make a donation to support the American Lung Association in its important fight against lung disease," Kristi continued.
