Guess Who’s On Eight Bus Ads In Chicago? The Red Pump Project!
So some of you know I founded an organization called The Red Pump Project with my girl Karyn Watkins of The Fabulous Giver. We raise awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women & girls, using red pumps as a symbol of empowerment. We’re national, with ambassadors around the country and we have events and do other cool stuff. You should go to our website for more info. Because we’re awesome.
This week, a citywide HIV/AIDS campaign called Change Your Story launched, and The Red Pump Project was chosen to be a part of it. We were so honored and stuff.
Change My Story’s an initiative by The AIDS Foundation of Chicago aims to empower people, especially communities of color, to take charge of their own health. There’s more awesomeness behind the campaign so read more at the Change My Story site. Part of the campaign includes bus ads that’ll be displayed around the city through Fall, and Red Pump is appearing in 8 of those ads.
So you know I had to go find one of the ads and take pics in front.
I’m thankful for this opportunity that The Red Pump Project got. Thanks to the AIDS Foundation of Chicago for including us.
Also, shoutout to one of my favorite photographers, Chuck of Chuckstr Photography for taking those pics of the ladies of Red Pump. Oh AND those shirts we have on are for sale on the Red Pump Online Store. So getchu some!
P.S. And then I hit my dougie.
