It's "Wear Red" Day
Did you know that today is “Wear red” day? And no, I didn’t make that up! Even though as author of Red is Best, maybe I should have. 🙂
Red’s not your colour, you say? You have nothing red in your closet? Why not – just for today – borrow something from your sister, your brother, your spouse or your best friend? I tend to wear black and beige a lot, especially in winter, but on those days I do pull on a red sweater, or a red fleece, I must say winter doesn’t seem quite so cold!
Not that feeling cold is a concern for me today. As recent post(s) indicate, I’m in Liberia, working with writers and teachers as part of the Reading Liberia team. In the meantime, my brilliant support team at Organized Assistant has kept track of and uploaded this posting for me.
Actually, although I write my own postings, Organized Assistant always uploads them for me. (They are so much more technically savvy than I am.)
Happy Wear Red Day!

I forgot to wear red, but I later found out it's to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke in women, so next year I'll be sure to take part!
I didn't know that, Janet. Thanks for passing that info along.
