Go Red for Women

I was surprised to find out that heart disease is the number 1 killer of women. Kills more women than all kinds of cancer combined. (Wow.) In an effort to raise public awareness of this, The American Heart Association encourages you to wear red this Friday (2/6) to show your support for Go Red for Women.

I don't know anyone who doesn't look good in red, so there's really no excuse to do something so simple! In addition, you might also consider visiting www.goreadforwomen.org to make a donation to support vital research and education efforts. Every little bit helps.

I was so pleasantly surprised to see that as a regular Meatless Monday blogger, you are also supporting one of our other causes: the go red campaign. This week's Meatless Monday theme is heart health for gals, next week's Valentine's theme also relates. Meatless Monday has a sister organization called Healthy Monday with a broader mission about checking in with your health every Monday. Healthy Monday has teamed up with the American Heart Association to promote the Go Red Campaign. You can find more resources at the Healthy Monday Go Red page: http://healthymonday.com/go_red/

Thanks for spreading the word about heart disease!
