rock the red pump day

The concept is simple: Rock the Red Pump to represent the strength and courage of women fighting HIV/AIDS or affected by the disease both directly and indirectly.

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is today. It's a nationwide initiative to raise awareness of the increasing impact of HIV/AIDS on women & girls and encourages ladies to take action. While progress has definitely been made in the areas of AIDS prevention and treatment, women still represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group.

educate your daughters, and cousins and friends...it's that important! and go on over and read more...and rock some red pumps, girls!!
