  All Day Go Red For Women Day   Go Red for Women encourages awareness of the issue of women and heart disease, and also action to save more lives. The movement harnesses the energy, passion and power women have to band together and collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges them to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk. It also gives them the tools they need to lead a heart healthy life. Only 55 percent of women realize heart disease is their No. 1 killer and less than half know what are considered healthy levels for cardiovascular risk factors like blood pressure and cholesterol. The Go Red for Women movement works to make sure women know they are at risk so they can take action to protect their health. Be sure to wear your red today and show your support!
 
  All Day “Give a Little Love” campaign   The “Give a Little Love” campaign is taking place at area McDonald’s restaurants from Tuesday, January 22 through Valentine’s Day on Thursday, February 14. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois (RMHCCI) invites local residents to participate and “Give a Little Love” by donating $1 or more and your name will be written on a heart to be displayed at McDonald’s. 100% of the proceeds will stay in central Illinois and directly benefit the Ronald McDonald House in Springfield, IL. RMHCCI exists to provide a supportive home away from home for families with children receiving medical care in Springfield, Illinois. Ronald McDonald House offers a good night's sleep, hot meals, and everything needed to keep parents' lives as simple as possible while they tend to the important task at hand: devoting all of their love and support to helping their child get well. RMHCCI is a 501(c)3 charity and could not provide a home away from home to over 300 families each year without the wonderful support of the central Illinois community. Please join us at area McDonald’s restaurants January 22—February 14 to give a lot of love for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois!
