Who's for wearing the red shirt?

Say 'Aye'.

Red Fridays.

Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, co-workers, friends, and family, it will not be long before Canada is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once 'silent' majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on. The first thing a soldier says when asked 'What can we do to make things better for you?' is 'We need your support and your prayers.'

Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something red every Friday.

Update:

88 dead so far in Afganistan. Yes, we have troops.

Update 2:

Red white and blue. Did you say you were from the united states?

Update 3:

We stole the idea of gun powder to, and sewing and farming corn, oh yes, and the Haggus.

Update 4:

Thanks CB.

Update 5:

I would think any red top would do, T-shirt, blouse, collared busy shirt, vest, tube top .....or a hat if your boss has a problem with red tops at work.

    I am proud to wear the red shirt every friday. When I go out in my uniform on fridays, I always try to tell every one that I see wearing a red shirt, "thanks for your support." Some people look at me like I'm crazy, but I don't care (I guess they are the ones that just happen to be wearing a red shirt that day with out knowing). I think that troops giving recognition to people wearing red shirts will get the people more interested in other types of events to help support troops, such as fundraisers and mwr events, or even direct support and sponsership for individual troops while they are overseas and when they return home.

    Aye! You're 100% right, Psych, word of mouth is the best, and thanks for passing this around.

    It began here where I live with busdrivers, then bank employees, and then major corporations adopted it. You have the right idea.

    There are many schools now encouraging children, which I really support, to wear Red on Fridays, because many a child has been orphaned by Afghanistan and abroad.

    It shows the other children compassion.

    And Canada is a compassionate country towards its' citizens.

    A BIG AYE!

    And I rarely do this, but for my Canadian Contacts, and whomever, - A star! :)
