Wear RED This Friday
The color RED. It makes us think of love… Red roses, red hearts, Valentines Day – it’s like the poster child color for the month of February. It’s also THE color to wear this Friday, February 2 to show support for the American Heart Association. Why? Because this Friday is GRFW Day (Go Red For Women). The American Heart Association is encouraging people to wear RED to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and to help save lives. By wearing RED you can join in the fight against heart disease and stroke. It’s a little something you can do to show support, because when we come together, there’s nothing we can’t do.
Picture it – a whole sea of people, nation wide, wearing RED – it’s powerful and it’s pretty – just like women.
Chances are you know someone affected by heart disease and stroke, because about 2200 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day. That’s in average of one death every forty seconds. Cardiovascular diseases, which includes stroke, claim the lives of about one woman every 80 seconds unnecessarily — because about 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases may be preventable with education and action. Raise awareness and fund the fight against cardiovascular disease and stroke.
If your closet is like most peoples, it’s probably somewhat void of color. That’s ok. No judgement here. But, if you want to show your support for heart health by wearing RED, you may need to buy something. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered… (btw, it’s Hallie writing this week). I scoured the Macy’s website and picked out some fabulous red pieces if you’re on the hunt for something RED, everything is under $250 and most are under $100 – so it’s as easy as 1, 2, click and support.
