On Wear It Beat It day the British Heart Foundation wants you to join them to raise heart disease awareness throughout the country.

Its conditions include heart attacks and strokes and it kills more people than any other disease in the UK.  So how can you help beat such a difficult problem?

Well if you and lots of others are willing to help out, together we can make a huge difference to the work the organisation is doing.

The aim is to have more improved services for people living with heart disease and highlight ways to prevent developing it in the first place.

All you have to do is ask for a fundraising pack, wear it beat it, and plan your own event.

There are loads of ideas to choose from, whether you’ll be at work, at home or in school or college!  Why not host your own red themed music night, for example, Little Red Rooster – Rolling Stones, Little Red Corvette – Prince, Red, Red Wine – UB40 or play songs by The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Red Hot Chilli Pipers and Simply Red.

You can also visit the official online shop and stock up with lots of red goodies for the day.  You can take things further by serving a selection of red food on red plates, with red napkins and red glasses to drink out of!

Just remember to pick out something red for the day, whether it’s a t-shirt, badge, bracelet whatever!  Wear it proudly and show your support.

Ramp up the Red will tie in with National Heart Month in the UK and American Heart Month which also takes place in February.

If everyone in the UK and in the US plans to wear red on the day, for women, children and men alike we’ll have an even greater chance of making lives better!
