Every 47 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States. While great progress has been made in the area of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, women still represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group. On March 10th, the United States will recognize National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). Launched by the Office of Women’s Health, NWGHAAD is a nationwide observance that encourages people to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS and raise awareness of its impact on women and girls.
The Red Pump Project™ raises awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. Their mission is to promote HIV prevention through education, and open dialogue about the issues that surround sexual and reproductive health. In observance of NWGHAAD, The Red Pump Project is back with their 4th Annual Rock the Red Pump™ Campaign! The campaign’s goal is to generate conversation in the blogosphere about the issue of HIV/AIDS and how it affects women. The concept is simple: Rock the Red Pump on your blog to represent the strength and courage of women fighting HIV/AIDS or affected by the disease both directly and indirectly. Since March 10th falls on a Saturday this year, the Red Pump Project decided to “paint the blogosphere red” today.
I gladly signed up for the campaign, and I’m rocking my red pumps proud today…
Amazing how something so simple can have such a large impact. In 2011, over 1,250 blogs participated in the Red Pump Project Campaign, and the goal is 2,500 blogs this year. You can sign up here if you wish to participate. For more information on the prevention of HIV/AIDS, visit womenshealth.gov. You may visit hivtest.org to find a testing center near you.

You got that right. Thx hon!
I love everything about this outfit!!
Love the tan color against your complexion and that red lipstick looks so good on you. I can’t see to find a bright bold one that really works with my complexion. I have the MAC Ruby Woo which works if I put a little but I want something like what you have that works for a dark deep complexion. Nevertheless as usual you look gorg.
Thank you so much hon. I am wearing Wet ‘n Wild Megalast lipstick in Stoplight Red/ 911d. It’s a dupe for Ruby Woo but not as matte or drying. It would look great on you!
Shoes are fire! Outfit is on point. Did I tell you, you are a dime? LOL Get it E!
Awwwww lol. Thanks Sha *blushing* 🙂
