National Wear RED Day – Today! What opportunities does this present?

Today, February 3, 2012 is National Wear Red Day to raise awareness of the prevalence of Heart Disease in women.  How many of us know someone who has been affected by this? The statistics show that Heart Disease kills more women that all forms of cancer combined.

However, more than raising awareness, there are some great opportunities to do something about this disease.  Occupations exist such as:  research, advocacy, healthy living, fundraising, marketing, volunteer coordinator to name just a few other than the obvious health care profession.  Organizations such as the American Heart Association are very successful due to their volunteer base.  However, they still require employees to make sure their mission and purpose are maximized. Image a career where you can be gratified on a daily basis that you are doing something to help the plight of women in the United States and around the world.

Think outside the box.  How can you fulfill a career aspiration at the same time you are helping people?

While learning from those who have suffered from fossil fuels and those who are building a better future without them, riders will engage in direct community service to mitigate the suffering and ease the transition.  At ExxonMobil’s headquarters, the riders will call for a meeting with executives from the world’s wealthiest fossil fuel company to ask them to recognize their responsibility to help America and the world rapidly and responsibly transition away from fossil fuels. More information coming soon to!
