Fight Heart Disease Like a Woman!

This year, February 1st is the 10th anniversary of National Go Red for Women Day. The American Heart Association has been campaigning to get word out about heart disease in women, and when you wear red, you can spread the word, too. Heart disease is the number one killer of women and is more deadly than all forms of cancer. If we all stand up for the cause and raise awareness, we can help prevent more women from having to live with this disease.

You can help raise awareness by wearing red this Friday. Don your best red outfit, and create unique jewelry to wear and give to others using red beads and heart-shaped components. Do your part to raise awareness, no matter how small you think your contribution may be. A small action can have a large impact. Here are a few of our Learning Center ideas that you can make to help spread the word or inspire your own new design:
