Have you checked your heart lately?
Today is National Wear Red Day in support of the American Heart Association and women’s heart health. And I am wearing red to support it.
Every year in February we hear the statistics and it does make us aware of the risks for heart disease in women. Most women don’t know that las enfermedades del corazón are the #1 killer of women in the US, more than any form of cancer or other diseases. We need to get informed on the symptoms and the risks of heart disease and share this with all the women we know.
Macy’s is a national sponsor of this campaign every year. They’ve donated $46 million dollars to the cause, but much more needs to be done. You may want to head over to their stores today where they have a special sale going on for anyone who wears red. You can also purchase a red dress pin for $2- the entire proceeds go towards the American Heart Asssociation (AHA)- and purchase one of their three exclusive red dresses in support of Go Red Por Tu Corazón, where part of the sale is donated to the AHA.
This week I had a chance to tag along for a special presentation my friend Martha Gil de Montes from Macy’s (@MarthaMacys) did on live TV in LA. She introduced a few amazing women who are survivors of heart disease and volunteers for the Go Red campaign, who modeled the dresses beautifully.
Hopefully you can support this cause, and please make sure to visit these websites for more information.
