February is known for roses and candy. But, did you also know February is the American Heart Month? It’s a time for the country to gain its attention to keeping families and communities free from heart disease, the No. 1 killer of Americans. This federally designated event reinforces the importance of heart health and the need for more research, with is a reminder to get families, friends and communities involved. The first proclamation was issued by President Lyndon B. Johnson in February 1964, nine years after he had a heart attack. Since then, the president has annually declared February as American Heart Month.
In honor of American Heart Month, I Just Wanna Do Crafts Gift Shop created handmade products around this special event: creative heart shaped tea cup candles, rose petal wine glass set (dark red) and a red chevron wine bag gift set. A small percentage of our profits (month of February only) will go towards more research with the American Heart Association, Go Red for Women® . This global initiative is to end heart disease and stroke in women, which was launched in 2004 to close the gap in awareness. Go Red quickly expanded into a worldwide movement dedicated to removing the barriers women face to achieving good health and well-being.
