Wear RED tomorrow for National Wear Red Day

Heart disease is a growing problem in our country. Because the symptoms of a heart attack present themselves differently in women, getting information and awareness out about stroke and heart disease is vital to saving lives.

Support this effort by wearing RED tomorrow.

If you have some extra time and money, support Macy's efforts to bring awareness to the issue, and receive 20% off your purchase for your efforts. A win-win for everyone. Pick up a Red Dress pin and all of the proceeds go to the American Heart Association.

Thanks for blogging about this important topic, Margaret!

Woman wearing red

Be sure to wear RED tomorrow, February 4, for NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY - an annual reminder from the American Heart Association that another woman dies every minute from stroke or heart disease.  Could the next one be you, your spouse, your mother, your sister, your daughter, your best friend, your favorite mentor?

Dig out that once-a-year RED Valentine tie, Guys, because this reminder isn’t just for women.  YOU can make a difference, too, by joining the important women in your life who will be wearing RED on Friday to create awareness of this national problem.

National Wear Red Day PinMacy’s is helping to spread the word by offering 20% off February 2-6 to anyone wearing RED.   May I suggest you use some of that savings to purchase the official “red dress” pin for $2, because 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Heart Association.  Just imagine how much money could be raised if every person who walks through the door of any Macy's nationwide over these five days would purchase a "red dress" pin.  Other national sponsors are offering special promotions, too, so visit their website for details.  You’ll find them listed at NATIONAL WEAR RED DAY.

Invite your whole company or bridge club or bowling team to go RED tomorrow: bake some heart-shaped cookies and have your own one-person bake sale to help raise funds for research; and pledge to get healthy, starting today.

Make it your mission to fight heart disease in women!

Heart disease is the number 1 killer of women.  It takes categories 2 thru 5 totals (cancer) and still kills more women.  It is so under advertised.

Thanks for the re-blog, Holly. 

Conrad, you're SO right.  Very under-advertised.
