National Wear Red Day


Don’t forget National Wear Red Day is Friday, February 4th! Not only should all of you wear red, but you need to know WHY you are doing so. Heart disease is the #1 threat to women. Having one day set aside where everyone wears red, we will try to raise awareness of heart disease & educate those around us.

The National Heart Lung & Blood Institute has some great ideas on their website of how to promote National Wear Red Day in your community! The one I have chosen to take on is speaking to local businesses around me & asking them to post Go Red posters in their stores & to give discounts to all those wearing RED on February 4th! Such a wonderful idea & great way to get everyone involved – who doesn’t love a discount?!
