Let’s Turn the White House RED!

by Migdalia Rivera

Have you heard the news?

The White House may turn red!

Why?

Because it will raise awareness for heart health! How cool is that?!

If you have never heard of Go Red for Women and/or Go Red Por Tu Corazón, it’s a non-profit organization that aims to raise awareness for heart health in women. As a Latina, I’m also more apt to have heart issues. Studies have proven that Latinas are likely to develop heart disease 10 years earlier than non-Hispanic white women. Scary, isn’t it? I know it freaked me out!

In fact, it’s one of the reasons I became a Go Red Spokesperson and why I would love to turn the WhiteHouse red, but I can’t do it alone. We need 25,000 signatures by January 4, 2012 for the White House to consider our petition to illuminate the building in red to honor National Wear Red Day® and American Heart Month.

Won’t you join me?

I really, really hope you will!
