Have you heard of Red Fridays, or maybe Red Shirt Fridays?  Let me give you a little background on Red Fridays - the premise is pretty simple...

Americans who support our troops used to be called the 'silent majority'. We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers.
Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday - and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that every red-blooded American who supports our men and women afar will wear something red.

The color RED signifies the color of blood for all the soldiers whose lives have been lost as a result of war. 

By word of mouth, press, TV, online venues just like this one -- let's make the United States on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers.

We need to let our servicemen and women know we support their sacrifice and we will not forget them and we will do this by wearing red on 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 the USA is covered in RED.

Wild Apple Design, in conjunction with the fabulous artistic talents of  Wild Blueberry Ink, have joined forces to offer several items for those individuals who want to support their country and soldiers by wearing red on RED FRIDAYS.  We recognize that many of you have dress codes or uniforms at your workplace and may be unable to wear RED clothing, so we have attempted to fulfill that market here. 

RED FRIDAY items are now available in the Wild Apple Design Etsy shop.  These items include:

Red Friday Bottle Cap Necklace: $14

 Red Friday Bottle Cap Necklace: $14
Red Friday Bottle Cap Magnet Set: $7
Red Friday Bottle Cap Swivel Clip: $6
Red Friday Bottle Cap Pins: $2 for 5

10% of the sales from all RED FRIDAY products sold will be donated to Soldier’s Angels, an organization of volunteers who provides countless methods of assistance to all branches of the U.S. Military, veterans and their families. To learn more about Soldier’s Angels, please check out their website:

When Keith was in Iraq, I awoke on Christmas Day to find our furnace had completely quit working and our house was 55 degrees.  The outside temperature was 32 degrees with snowfall and winds of 18 miles an hour.  The temperature was dropping fast.  It was Soldier's Angels who assisted our family with help acquiring a new furnace, and our family is extremely grateful for their assistance.

I can't thank Shirley at Wild Blueberry Ink enough for all of her hard work on the graphics for the RED FRIDAY project.  Please visit her Etsy Shop right HERE.  You can also find Shirley and Wild Blueberry Ink at these fabulous locations:


  1. Love this!!!

  2. Such a great idea And would proudly support and wear the red Friday necklace or any of the items. I think o would like to adopt a soldier who does not have a spouse or family to send him care packages. I would get my kiddos to send cards and goodies! I think we will head over to the local recruiting office and see if they can give us a name and number of who we can call to find a soldier to adopt. Thanks for such a wonderful idea. Also I posted on Facebook

  3. I send surprise packages to my favorite soldier - my step-niece.
