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.
Macy’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. (Click on the link)
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!
