National Wear Red Day – Friday, February 1, 2013

10 Year Anniversary Pin - Go Red for Women

National Wear Red Day is Friday, February 1, 2013! 

It is the 10th Anniversary of the ‘Go Red for Women’ campaign! 

The American Heart Association is challenging America to “Go Red” for National Wear Red Day, February – heart awareness month, as well as ALL YEAR LONG! 

Did you know that 1 in 3 women will die of heart disease. AND, it’s the #1 killer of women above all cancers combined. All cancers combined? Wow! Think about it, think about 3 important women in your life. It’s pretty easy to come up with 3 women, right? Now imagine life without one of them. Scary, huh? It could happen. It’s the reality of the statistics, for now.  But, the American Heart Association is continuing to create awareness, educate, and raise funds for research to fight the battle against heart disease. And, they need your help to do that! 

Here are just a few things you can do: 

*Wear RED on National Wear Red Day – Friday, Febuary 1, 2013. 

* Encourage others to wear red on National Wear Red Day – associations, churches, co-workers, etc. 

*Decorate your business in red – store fronts, lobby areas, etc. 

*Host a healthy lunch at work or dinner with friends. 

*Educate others to live heart healthy lifestyles. 

Please remember, the ‘Go Red for Women’ campaign does focus on women and their fight against heart disease. But, heart disease affects men too. So, make sure they know to live a heart healthy lifestyle too! 

RED at Donna's Fashions

Looking for something RED to wear on National Wear Red Day? You can head to Donna’s Fashions (Tulsa). These are just a few ‘fun finds’ that you can get there – for women and men. Yes, men should be wearing red on National Wear Red Day too! Uh, I think my name needs to be on the RED cowboy boots that have tan HEARTS embroidered on them. Can you say, perfect?!? 

Exclusive Rustic Cuff at Donna's Fashions

And, most definitely, my name needs to be on this cuff. It’s an exclusive cuff being sold at Donna’s Fashions (by Rustic Cuff) in support of the Go Red for Women campaign. A percentage of sales, of this particular cuff, will be donated to the local (Tulsa) chapter of the  American Heart Association. Promo running through the month of February. Strictly, my opinion, but, this quote is perfect for women and their fight against heart disease:

“Strong Women. May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them.” 

There are a variety of businesses, in Tulsa, as well as across the nation that are “Going Red” in their own way. Make sure to contact them, check their social media pages, and show your support when and where you can. 

So, mark your calendars for Friday, February 1, 2013 and WEAR RED!!
