Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women and claims nearly 500,000 lives every year. It is estimated that 43 million American women are affected by cardiovascular diseases. And thankfully, 80% of cardiac events in women can be prevented simply by making some lifestyle changes!
Seeing this, the American Heart Association decided to create awareness about heart disease by declaring February as American Heart Month. The first Friday of February (falling on February 3rd this year) has been declared as National Wear Red Day.
Join the cause and spread awareness about heart disease and you will gain goodwill for your brand from the local community! Here are 5 red promotional products you can give away during the National Wear Red Day and the American Heart Month:
Giving away red promotional apparel for National Wear Red Day is a no-brainer! T-shirts, sweatshirts and caps imprinted with your logo and a catchy phrase are some great products for creating awareness about heart disease. They work well at awareness events where you can distribute them among attendees. Moreover, promotional apparel offers high logo exposure as recipients can wear them wherever they go.
Pedometers are extremely helpful for those who would like to lose weight and keep their hearts healthy. As per many studies, individuals who use pedometers tend to increase their daily activity by 2000 steps a day on average. This translates to an extra mile i.e. 100 extra calories burned a day. Over a year, these 100 extra calories sum up to nearly 10.5 pounds! An imprinted heart-shaped pedometer is one of the most memorable giveaways for the National Wear Red Day.
Red promotional wristbands are an amazing way to promote and show support for the American Heart Month. Recipients will love wearing them wherever they go. Since wristbands are attractive and easily noticeable, your logo will get optimal visibility and gain a reputation as a brand that cares.
4. Stress Relievers
Those suffering from chronic stress often indulge in unhealthy activities such as smoking or excessive drinking, which are bad for the heart. A stress reliever helps in redirecting the mind away from stress and relaxes the user. You can make meaningful impressions this February by giving away a heart-shaped stress reliever with your logo and message imprinted on it.
5. Sports Drinkware
Staying active is one of the most effective ways to keep your heart healthy. Everyone loves tumblers and bike bottles as they are useful and convenient to carry during workouts. Moreover, they offer a large imprint area for your logo, enhancing your brand’s visibility and awareness.
