I don’t jump behind just any old cause. Besides, you know my “thing” is cancer, because, well, my thing was cancer. But then this came across my in-box, and I just had to get involved.
More women die of cardiovascular disease than the next five causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer.
90% of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease.
Heart disease is largely preventable. In fact, 80% of cardiac events in women may be prevented if women make the right choices for their hearts involving diet, exercise and abstinence from smoking
So, we’re wearing the proverbial red today at MommaSaid by giving away something red, including:
• The American Heart Association’s book Complete Guide to Women’s Heart Health: The Go Red For Women Way to Well-being and Vitality
• Go Red For Women Yoga Mat
• Go Red For Women Water Bottle
• Go Red For Women Notepad
• Go Red For Women Signature Red Dress Pin
For your chance to win, post a comment with your favorite red thing by midnight tonight. (Keep it clean, folks. I won’t post the dirty stuff, because my niece reads my blog.) Open to US citizens only, please. A winner will be chosen at random through random.org, a random number generator, sometime tomorrow when I’m snowed in here. Happy Wear Red Day to you all, even if you go pink instead because red doesn’t look good on your complexion.
Pass it on!
