On February 5, 2016, Farouk Systems, Inc. and their employees celebrated National Wear Red Day in support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red for a Day movement.
National Wear Red Day® helps to bring attention to the staggering facts that impact women’s health and encourages everyone to wear red, raise their voices and to take actions to live longer, healthier lives. Farouk Systems, Inc. is proud to take part in this campaign and to help raise awareness in the fight against these rising numbers.
To mark this important day, all Farouk employees showed support for these issues by wearing red as well as seeking additional support from salons and fellow artists within the beauty industry by encouraging them to also wear red.
According to Basim Shami, CEO of Farouk Systems, “We are a company concerned for the safety and welfare of beauty professionals and their clients, Farouk Systems works hard throughout the year to maintain healthy standards not only through our product development but with other issues that might touch the health and safety of our industry. An estimated 43 million women in the U.S. are affected with statistics showing 1-in-3 women dying from heart disease and stroke. As these numbers continue to rise, this has become an important issue and a concern to everyone in the company.”
The next day, Farouk Systems continued their awareness efforts with their endorsement of the Pink Women’s Health Symposium. This event was hosted by the Houston Metropolitan Area Chapters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Farouk Systems served as a sponsor by donating products and door prizes for their Women Heart’s Red Bag of Courage®. The symposium provides women with accurate information on various aspects of heart disease so they can make heart healthy decisions about diet, exercise, medical treatment and mental health.
Farouk Systems is honored to be a part of these great causes to shed light on issues that continually affect growing numbers of women, all across the country.
