It’s Friday, Feb. 4 which means it’s National Wear Red Day 2011 in honor of women’s heart health! OK! has put together 10 red dresses celebs have worn in 2011. While you don’t have to walk out of house wearing a dress like the one January Jones did this year to the Golden Globes, you can put on something red to help support the cause today!
Heart disease is the number one killer for women and kills one about every minute, the Long Island Press reports. National Wear Red Day was started by The American Heart Association to help raise awareness, provide educational programs and discover new treatments.
The American Heart Association reports that 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease and more women die from the disease than the next four causes of death combined.
If it’s too late for you to put on something red, you can also help by spreading the word about heart disease to five other women!
As an example, check out Betty White below!
