Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but that’s not the only reason to celebrate hearts in the month of February! Go Red for Women,Â sponsored by the American Heart Association, is ready to help you learn to love your heart throughout the month of February and every day! Why? Because heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in women (and men) in the U.S.; heart disease affects us all, and the only way we can prevent it is through educating ourselves and each other.
You can start by checking out the Go Red for Women website (www.goredforwomen.org)Â and also tipping your friends, family and co-workers off to this great site.Â You can register for free and participate in heart health checkups, donations and more.
Love a little bit of philanthropic swag? Me too…you can help support this movement (and also your love for fashion) by shopping Go Red for Women’s boutique…check out these haut and heart-consicous items and buy with confidence, knowing you are helping support a worthy cause.
What have you done to show your heart you care today? Making changes are easier than you may think…take a walk during your lunch break, order baked chicken instead of fried, or commit to finally ditching those cigs for good. Your heart will thank you!
