Someone sent me an email a year ago about Red Fridays. Another quiet Canadian way to support our troops and their families.
Here is the Red Fridays Foundation Mission:
- To promote wearing Red on Fridays that is impartial to any world events and remain non partisan on supporting the Canadian Troops.
- To offer all organizations that support the movement to wear Red on Fridays a common website portal for their events and assistance in organizing their events.
- To respect all soldiers that have given their lives for Canada by publishing a memorial for those that have fallen recently
- To create brand recognition the RED FRIDAYS RIBBON as a nationally recognized symbol for support of our Canadian troops.
- To offer media a single source of Red Fridays activities nation wide.
- To be recognized as a Canadian source for supporting Canadian troops, Canadian Forces activities information and liaison for Canadian Citizens to show support to our troops.
Since then I have tried my best to remember to wear red on Fridays …
Lest we forget
