Jan. 27, 2012 - PRLog -- Los Angeles, CA – Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.  In 2010, the American Heart Association estimated that over 785,000 people had a coronary attack and 470,000 had a recurrent attack.  The team at 49 Square Miles, a discreetly luxurious line of accessories, is proud to join the fight to help reduce death and disability from cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  During “American Heart Month” in February, 49 Square Miles will donate 20% of sales from the Busy Body Small Crossbody bag (in red or turquoise) and our best-selling Clingy Wallet (in red or turquoise) purchased on to the American Heart Association.  The AHA is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

“The statistics are frightening; 1 in 4 women will die from this deadly disease,” said Lisa Rissetto, founder and creative director of 49 Square Miles. “With the proper diet, exercise and education, many of us will be able to prevent the onset of a cardiovascular instance. We are proud to join the American Heart Association to help raise awareness and critical funding for clinical studies and educational programs that promote a healthy lifestyle free from cardiovascular instances.

The color red has long been associated with feelings of confidence and passion and in 2003 the red dress became a national symbol for women and heart disease awareness.  The American Heart Association officially adopted this identifiable symbol to create synergy among all organizations dedicated to fighting this deadly disease.  To help show support for the cause, 49 Square Miles will donate 20% of the sales from of the stylish, compact Busy Body Small Leather Crossbody bag in red or turquoise (retail $295.00)  and our best-selling Clingy Wallet in red or turquoise leather (retail $195.00) to the American Heart Association.  For more information on these designs, please visit and click on the “leather” tab.
