Join Burlington Coat Factory in raising awareness about women’s heart health ($50 gift card giveaway ends 3/8/13)

 

Heart Health

Do you want to hear some pretty scary statistics? Probably not, but for YOUR health sake, I think you need to know these.

Women account for just over half of the total heart disease deaths in the United States each year, although many women continue to think of heart disease as a man’s disease.

Worldwide, 8.6 million women die from heart disease each year, accounting for a third of all deaths in women.

42% of women who have heart attacks die within 1 year, compared to 24% of men.

Under age 50, women’s heart attacks are twice as likely as men’s to be fatal.

8 million women in the US are currently living with heart disease; 35,000 are under age 65. Four million suffer from angina.

435,000 American women have heart attacks annually; 83,000 are under age 65; 35,000 are under 55.

267,000 women die each year from heart attacks – six times more than the number of women who die from breast cancer.

Although these stats are geared towards women, men need to be concerned about heart disease just as much as women do.

These stats are from the Heart Foundation.

As a woman I find these stats very, very, very alarming and concerning. Especially because I’m obese and I don’t exactly take care of myself like I KNOW I should. I always tend to push these types of facts in the back of my head so I can conveniently forget about them (at least for the time being). When they in front of my face again it scares me to death. I don’t want to get heart disease or have a heart attack. I don’t want to do that to my family. 🙁

I am happy to support campaigns that help to bring awareness to women’s health, especially heart health. And I can’t think of a better way to support women’s heart health then getting all dressed up in a beautiful red dress.

If you read my blog on a regular basis you know that I’m not one to post press releases. But every now and then I feel that the information is too important not to share.

Burlington Coat Factory, a national off-price retailer offering designer merchandise at everyday low prices, is proud to announce the launch of its second annual Red Dress Event in partnership with WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease and The Heart Truth® to raise awareness of heart disease as the leading cause of death in women. Today is National Wear Red Day®, as well as the start of American Heart Month, making it the perfect occasion for Burlington and WomenHeart to kick off this exciting event.

Now through Easter, all 500 Burlington stores will feature a prominent red dress section and for every ladies and girls dress sold, Burlington will donate $1, up to $25,000, to WomenHeart to fund life-saving heart health education.  In addition, customers can help by donating $1 or more at check-out to contribute to WomenHeart’s free education and support services for women living with heart disease.  Burlington will celebrate these customer donations by displaying paper Red Dress icons at check out with the donor’s name.

In the retailer’s inaugural Red Dress Event, it raised close to $1 Million to support WomenHeart and its free education and support services for women living with heart disease.  This fundraising enabled the organization to launch Para la Mujer Hispana, the first national heart health education program for Hispanic-American women. Today, WomenHeart launches its Spanish-language website, and will begin distribution of bi-lingual educational materials within their iconic Red Bag of Courage®.

In addition, any customer who donates $10 or more at these select locations will receive the coveted Red Dress pin, the nationally recognized symbol of heart disease in women, complements of WomenHeart and Burlington.

To find a store near you visit www.BurlingtonCoatFactory.com.

For more information about Women Heart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease visit www.WomensHeart.org.

Don’t forget to visit The Heart Truth at www.HeartTruth.gov.

I have seen some of the dresses available for this wonderful campaign and they are beautiful. If only they came in my size. 🙁

Burlington Red Dress Trend Sheet

Even though the graphic says Valentine’s Day, these dresses are still available and are a part of this campaign. Plus they have many other dresses, not just the ones in the graphic.

I think this is a wonderful campaign. It seems like a win-win situation for everyone. You get a beautiful red dress and money goes towards education and helping to fight heart disease. I would also like to think that every time you wear your lovely red dress you’ll think more about your own heart health and the heart health of the people you love.

To help you purchase your wonderful red dress (or anything else you might want) Burlington has generously offered to give a lucky reader a $50.00 gift card to Burlington Coat Factory (remember – they are MORE then just coats!). Thank you Burlington!
