Why I Wear RED on Fridays #REDFriday
Why do I wear RED on Fridays? #REDFriday For me, REDFriday comes from a place to honor my military brothers/sisters who are still deployed overseas. RED Friday is the day to bust out some red gear.
Here’s my initial thought:
Some people SELL the Dream.
Others LIVE the Dream.
Very few get to DEFEND the Dream.
Veteran Entrepreneurs, aka Vetrepreneurs, are a rare breed that can do all three. #REDFriday is a way to honor those that allow us back home to relentlessly pursue freedom, liberty and happiness.
I, Matt Sapaula, commonly called the @MoneySmartGuy, will share a few moments in my military experience in this video that told me “Do it BIG” and “Make Something of YOURSELF”!
Plus, I announces a trip to Miami and special meet up at the Aloft Hotel. That’s where I’ll be speaking and training as a guest to Britt Pelaez and Tony Martinez of PHP Agency.
Where Did #REDFriday Come From?
According to SNOPES.com, the original email chain read:
You will soon see a lot of people wearing RED on Fridays. Here’s why…..
The Americans who support our troops, are the silent majority. We are not “organized” to reflect who we are, or to reflect what our opinions are. Many Americans, like yourself, would like to start a grassroots movement using the membership of the Special Operations Association, and Special Forces Associations, and all their friends, simply to recognize that Americans support our troops. We need to inform the local VFW’s and American Legion, our local press, local TV, and continue carrying the message to the national levels as we start to get this going. Our idea of showing our solidarity and support for our troops is starting Friday, and continuing on each and every Friday, until this is over, that every RED – blooded American who supports our young men and women, WEAR SOMETHING RED.
Word of mouth, press, TV — let’s see if we can make the United States, on any given Friday, a sea of RED much like a home football game at a university.
If every one of our memberships share this with other acquaintances, fellow workers, friends, and neighbors, I guarantee that it will not be long before the USA will be covered in RED – and make our troops know there are many people thinking of their well-being. You will feel better all day Friday when you wear RED!
Let’s get the word out and lead by example; wear RED on Fridays.
Please forward this to everyone you know!!
Wear RED on Fridays . SUPPORT OUR TROOPS! WE LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE, BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. FOR US, THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED!! GOD BLESS AMERICA.
Listen, I was in the Marine Corps on active duty for 8 years…and this is the FIRST I’ve heard of #REDFriday. So don’t feel so bad.
If you support our troops, call yourself a patriot and have a family member directly or indirectly that has served in the U.S. military, wear RED on Friday! Post a pic on your social media profile(s) and be sure to hastag #REDFriday.
Thank you in advance! Tweet me your #REDFriday pic – @MoneySmartGuy
