National Wear Red Day: 2010

Dear Fam/Friends/Fellow Bloggers:

I’d like to invite you to support National Wear Red Day.

You may not know this, but the number one killer of women is heart disease. And every year more than 460,000 women die from this largely preventable disease.

National Wear Red Day is a day to recognize the women who have died from this disease, to build awareness of the statistics, and to encourage all women to make a choice to beat heart disease. This year National Wear Red Day is February 5. National Wear Red Day is for women like Theresa. As a busy mom, Theresa kept putting off a check-up, but called her doctor when she felt tired, short of breath, and started having back and chest pains. “I had a feeling that it was my heart, but all the tests were saying it wasn’t, “ Theresa said. Two months later, Theresa had a massive heart attack at a family birthday party. She was 38. You can read Theresa’s story at www.GoRedForWomen.org/stories.

As a supporter of Go Red For Women, the American Heart Association’s initiative to build awareness and raise funds towards the cause of women and heart disease, I have created a group that you can join. Support the cause by wearing red and donating $25 or more to support the science and research of the American Heart Association that benefits all women, men and children.

On behalf of women everywhere, please join me to fight and beat this deadly disease.

Donation Levels:
  • $100 - Help others
  • $ 75 - Beat Heart Disease
  • $ 50 - Know the Facts
  • $ 25 - Wear Red
If none of these fit your budget, feel free to select your own donation amount

Fair enough? Good. Now you're ready to GO RED with Team {stellar.SASSY.social}!

Team Goals:
  • Recruitment = 100
  • Donations = $1,000
