As I mentioned on Thursday, today March 10th, is National Women and Girls’ HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. The Red Pump Project has asked for all bloggers to blanket the blogosphere red, today, so here I am.  Remember it’s more than a fashion statement, it’s about women demonstrating that awareness is always in style.  Remember every 35 minutes a woman is diagnosed with HIV.  Here’s my own spin, if you don’t own a pair of red pumps, rock your red blouse, belt, handbag, whatever you have in red, lets show support for this very important day.

Will You Be Rocking Your Red Pumps?

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!!
