The Red Pump Project
I would love for you to be part of a campaign I’m initiating, along with Karyn of The Fabulous Giver. National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is Tuesday, March 10th. 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.
In observance of this day, Karyn and I came up with the idea of The Red Pump Project. 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. We ask that on that day (March 10th), you embed the Red Pump Widget within your post with a short snippet of its significance, or you can rock the widget on your sidebar for the day. Besides, the Red Pump will add a touch of FIERCE to your already FABULOUS blogs!
We want you to join The Red Pump Project and help spread awareness of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. To sign up to participate, please just reply to this email. If you sign up, I will send you instructions and the html code of the widget. Also, your blog will be linked on a post on my blog that will run on March 10th. For more information on National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, you can head on over to www.womenshealth.gov/NWGHAAD. Here, you will be able to learn how the initiative started and look up any local events in your area! Your participation in this campaign would be GREATLY appreciated.
