Red Dress, Heart Smart

Photobucket

It's something that too few people realize. Nevertheless, heart disease ranks as the #1 killer of American women -- and men.

But the good news is that heart disease can largely be prevented. And that's the committed goal of the American Heart Association and their Go Red For Women movement—empowering women with knowledge and tools so they can take positive action to reduce their risks and protect their health.

Thanks to the participation of millions of people across the country since 2004, the Go Red For Women movement's signature red color and red dress have become linked with the ability women have to improve their heart health and live stronger, longer lives.

So join in supporting Go Red For Women.

And don't forget to Click here on the dress design donated by Lisa Perry that was voted the winner for this worthy cause. For each click, Campbell's is donating $1 to the Go Red For Women movement. And what's more, if you just happen to be a 1960s Andy Warhol "pop art" lover, then these dress designs would probably be -- totally you.

I must have been living under a rock because I've not heard about this movement. Or perhaps it's only in the U.S?

I think so, Lynn. But thanks to the Internet, the word on heart health is getting out worldwide.
