Friday, Feb 1st - Paint the Town Red!

Heart disease is the number one killer of women - a fact that is often overlooked. Because of that, February goes red for women's heart health, and the month starts off with National Go Red For Women day. So on Friday, put on your favourite bits of red, and support the cause and raise awareness for women's heart health!

All month long, you'll be able to buy products that have gone red, from a variety of sources that pledge to donate a percentage of the sale to women's heart health. While this is a great concept, make sure you check it out before you commit to buying a red product. As with any other product/donation campaign, different companies donate different amounts and have different rules for how they donate - and some are surprising. This isn't to discourage people from buying red - only to encourage smart shopping!

And as for tomorrow, I'll definitely be one of the ladies in red. (I don't know what it is with the musical references today, so sorry!)
