Rock the Red Pump

Today March 10, 2011 is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and over 1,200 blogs, including mine, are taking the time today to spread the message. HIV/AIDS may not be in the news so much anymore. But that doesn’t mean that lives aren’t being devastated. Every 35 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States.

Created by the Office of Women’s Health, NWGHAAD is recognized on March 10th each year with the goal of bringing women together to encourage dialogue and educate women and girls about the increasing impact of HIV/AIDS in our lives. Five years ago, a group of women started the Red Pump Project to help spread the word, help educate and inform women and girls about HIV/AIDS. I’m proud to have participated twice. If you blog and want to participate next year, find out more here. Last year my blog was one of 500 that joined in the cause. Today it is one of 1,200. Let’s really rock the red pump and be one of 5,000 in 2012.

  1. Charlene, thank you for letting me know about the project. I had not heard of it. I have signed up for their newsletter and am now a fan on facebook.
