Red symbolizes of passion, action, confidence, courage and vitality. It can boost mental and physical energy.

It can also raise awareness for a very important cause: Heart Health!

The Heart Truth® has been embraced by millions of people who share the goal of better heart health for women. Sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and supported by the American College of Cardiology (ACC), The Heart Truth® reminds women to protect their heart health and inspires them to take action.

Today, you can take action too and wear red! Use it as a reminder for your own personal heart health, as well as a way to share with others the importance of protecting their heart health!

What will you be wearing during National Wear Red Day to help spread the word about heart health?

Find out what I am wearing today by following along on Instagram and Facebook.  I’ll reveal my look throughout the day (hint: it includes red high heels!)

Diet Coke is also an active and passionate supporter of The Heart Truth®. Through its eye-catching packaging, retail partners and millions of fans, Diet Coke helps bring attention to the cause and generate support for The Heart Truth®. More than six billion packages of Diet Coke carry The Heart Truth® logo yearlong. Each time people pick up a can, place one on their desk, or share one with friends, they’re reminded to support heart health programs.

Throughout February, fans can use their social channels to trigger a donation from Diet Coke to the cause, up to $100,000. For every fan that uploads a heart-inspired photo to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ShowYourHeart, Diet Coke will make a $1 donation to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (up to $100,000) to support heart health research and programs.

Here are some of the photos shared:
