Friday, February 5th is National Wear Red Day

Tomorrow is National Wear Red Day. Thousands of Americans will be wearing red to draw attention to this startling fact:

Over 430,000 women are silenced each year by cardiovascular disease – and most of these deaths are preventable.

I’m writing because I hope you’ll wear something red tomorrow to honor those women – and that you’ll help fund the research and programs that can save them.

Today, we’re launching a Go Red & Give campaign. One week, one goal: $100,000 to keep our sisters, mothers, daughters and wives safe.

Give a gift today and support our education, outreach and research programs to help save women’s lives.

Your donation could help keep someone you love safe from the #1 killer disease in the U.S.

Nearly every minute, another woman succumbs to cardiovascular disease. The American Heart Association is fighting back, and we need your help. Wear red tomorrow – and donate today to help save women’s lives.

Our goal: $100,000 by next Friday. Donate at:  http://tiny.cc/R8ESz

Big or small, your gift can help put information in the hands of more women – information that can save a life, like how to eat better, how to recognize the warning signs of heart attack, and how to talk to a doctor about critical health choices.

The American Heart Association is also a major funder of breakthrough research with $44 million invested in women-centered research in just the past five years.

But we can only save lives with your help.

Please donate what you can. Every dollar will help us reach our $100,000 goal by midnight February 12th.

Thank you for showing your support tomorrow by participating in National Wear Red Day – and thank you for your generosity.

Sincerely,

Nancy Brown

Chief Executive Officer

American Heart Association
