Lock Up Your Love With Master Love Lock

I first heard about love locks on bridges on an episode of Shannen Says. The show followed her and her fiancee as they traveled to Prague and locked up their love with a padlock on the bridge.  I must say that I thought it was quite romantic, and I had an urge to travel with my hubby to "lock up our love". 

Luckily for out bank account, we might not have to travel all the way to Europe to participate in this amazing tradition.  Master Lock is launching, a site that invites visitors to lock up their love—virtually securing their bond to each other and simultaneously generating donations for the American Heart Association.

“Padlocks have been recognized as symbols of strength and security for decades, which makes the love locks tradition such a heartfelt gesture,” said Rebecca Smith vice president, marketing, for Master Lock. “With the launch of and our commitment to the American Heart Association, supporters can make their own declaration of affection and in doing so, show others a little love by increasing our donation to a good cause.”

Master Lock is donating an initial $10,000 to the American Heart Association and will donate an additional dollar for every love lock created and sent through the new site (up to $5,000) beginning October 19 through December 31, 2012.

Sweethearts, family members and friends can head to and virtually lock up their affection for loved ones or memorialize loved ones on various iconic bridges throughout the world in four easy steps - no travel required. Visitors select a lock, choose a bridge to secure their lock to, and upload a private photo and personal message for their loved one. To officially lock-up their love, the customized “love lock invitation” is sent to the recipient via email. If your love lock is honoring someone lost, send the invitation to yourself for acceptance. Once the invitation is accepted, the love lock and message are posted on the site’s public gallery, securing this symbol of endearment forever.
