National Wear Red Day

Happy National Wear Red Day!

National Wear Red Day occurs on the first Friday in February to help raise awareness of the dangers of heart disease to women.  Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women in the country, so in 2004 the American Heart Association (AHA) started the Go Red for Women Campaign to inform women of the dangers of this silent killer.

Each year, companies and organizations across America join forces to raise awareness and money to support education and research. Women can find information about diet choices and exercise routines to help lower their risk, and anyone who wears red this weekend will receive a special 20% discount at Macy’s stores.

Calendar Donations for Austin Teachers

Each year, Calendars.com and Calendar Holdings give out thousands of calendars to local teachers and non-profits. This past Friday, teachers lined up outside our warehouse to jump at the chance to participate in the event.

Both of my parents are elementary school teachers and I know how they struggle with tight bugets. It gave me warm fuzzies to see us providing calendars to help the students organize their days.

Donation Day happens once a year,  usually in late March. If you are a local teacher or a local non-profit in Austin, TX, please contact vendorinfo@calendarholdings.com for more information.
