Did you know that Feb. 1 is National Wear Red Day? Me neither, but now I have an excellent chance to bust out my red dress from Christmas AND support an awesome cause. Go Red for Women supports the fight agains Heart Disease (just in time for Valentine’s Day) , the No. 1 killer of women (and men). Go Red for Women also offers a fun online community where you can get information about how to get others interested in this important cause.
Whether you want to go all out and wear your red dress and heels or want to make a simple statement like red earrings or a pin, today is the day to wear it proud. You can continue to wear red all month in support of Go Red for Women, and even get some official swag. Check it out!
Or you can do it up LeFashionista style:
Heart disease affects us all, and Go Red for Women wants to encourage you to “fall in love” with your heart! Today is the day to get pumped about a checkup and to take a stand against heart disease. Never had a check up? Then call 1-800-AHA-2222 to take a RedHeartCheckUp.
Heart disease doesn’t just affect men, so wear your red today and educate your friends and co-workers about ways to take care of their own hearts. Whether you take up walking after work, challenge yourself to quit smoking or eating a healthier diet, any small change you make today will make an impact on your heart health.
