Will You Be Rocking Your Red Pumps?

In Charities, Daily Musings on March 8, 2012 at 10:17 am

Saturday March 10, is National Women & Girls’ HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.  This is a nationwide observance launched by the Office of Women’s Health in the United States to encourage people to take action against the fight against HIV/AIDS.  Those of you who have been following me, will remember that I wrote  a post about “The Red Pump Project” a couple of months ago; highlighting what they do, within my post I said I would remind you closer to the date, Well ladies the time is here. 

The Red Pump Project raises awareness about the impact of  HIV/AIDS on women and girls.   Black women represent 66% of  all new diagnoses.  This is a subject of high importance to every single one of us, whether in a committed relationship or not.  We need to take care of ourselves.  Ladies talk to your daughters, talk to your relatives, talk to your friends.  GET TESTED.  Too many of us are dying from what is mostly a preventable disease (there have been cases of tainted blood transfusions, but steps have now been put in place to prevent this, though too late for the father of a good friend of mine).  Please take the time to think before you act.  No amount of pleasure is worth dying for!  Click here for HIV/AIDS 101  http://www.theredpumpproject.org/hivaids-101/

Once again, THINK BEFORE YOU ACT, GET TESTED!!

  1. Thank you for the reminder. It’s important that we spread the word!!! I will be rocking my red pumps on Saturday!

  2. The figures make the phenomenon much more clear – I personally didn’t even think it was soo bad. Saturday is my birthday and I’m glad something significant is happening, cuz I often feel like nothing significant happens in March! I’m going to the falls/beach though, so wearing my red pumps (my only red shoes) might be awwkwaard…But I think I’ll rock a red belt!!

    • Hi darling, rocking your red belt will be just fine, and happy birthday to you! If the weather is too chilly I’ll be rocking a red shirt as my red pumps are more for spring/summer. Have a fantastic day.
