The Red Tie Project

The Red Pump Project

HIV/AIDS is an epidemic that needs a lot of attention.  Did you know there is an awareness day devoted specifically to how if affects women? Contrary to the stereotype, HIV/AIDS is not a disease that affects only homosexual males. It touches the lives of women everywhere, and in turn touches our lives.

  • Did you know that every 9 ½ minutes in the US someone is infected with HIV?
  • Did you also know that every 35 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States?

Those are pretty chilling statistics, but every year on March 10th the United States will recognize the day as National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.  It is a national initiative to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS, specifically the impact it has on women and girls everywhere. Prevention and treatment measures have increased, but women still account for 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women making up 66% of that group.

The Red Pump Project™ raises awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. Their mission is to prevent HIV through education, and open communication about the issues that surround sexual and reproductive health.

How can you help? Rock a Red Tie! Tell your wife, sister, mother, aunts, girlriends or WHOEVER to Rock the Red Pumps! The red shoe is a symbol of empowerment meant to encourage the women suffering with and affected by HIV/AIDS. If you get a compliment on your snazzy red tie then tell them why you’re wearing them! Share the word and spread awareness. It’s something everyone can do.

If you’re a blogger you can head over to The Red Pump Project™ website and get a badge to raise awareness as well.  If you’re not a blogger, tweet about it, facebook it, and of course, wear your red tie! Sharing in any way that you can will help the cause.Learn more about the Project and find other ways to spread awareness and get involved here.
