Throughout the month of February, Goodwill of Central Arizona invites all of our shoppers and donors to join millions of Americans in showing our support for women’s heart health and the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign.
Goodwill participated in National Wear Red Day® on February 3, a day when millions nationwide wore a favorite red dress, red shirt, red tie, or Red Dress Pin. National Wear Red Day® provides an opportunity for everyone to unite in the effort to urge women to protect their hearts. Shoppers who wore RED on National Red Day on February 3 got 10 percent off purchases at Goodwill of Central Arizona retail stores!
What is the Go Red for Women campaign?
In 2004, the American Heart Association (AHA) launched Go Red for Women – a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health. The campaign is an effort to raise awareness that heart disease — the #1 killer of women — is largely preventable.
:Goodwill of Central Arizona will support the cause by selling the American Heart Association’s red hearts in all retail stores from February 10-29. The partnership will culminate with a Goodwill hosted fashion show at the Go Red for Women luncheon (more information to follow).
Also during February, Goodwill of Central Arizona will partner with the American Heart Association to host a few presentations/seminars in one or a few of our 13 Career Centers.
We urge all Goodwill supporters to get behind this major initiative as it gives us an opportunity to show that we not only Put People to Work, but we Put Healthy Hearts First.
