Hey to my fellow Divas and if I happen to have any fellas lurking...
What's up Divos?!
I am bright eyed and bushy tailed as I type this post because we have a beautiful day on tap here in the DMV! Spring is right around the corner y'all! Daylight savings time begin in a little over two weeks. I don't mind losing an hour of precious sleep if it means that we gain an extra hour of daylight. For us bloggers that hour is precious to us for photo shoot optimization.
Do you see the banner over there? =================>
The Red Pump Project is a great organization and movement that is bringing awareness of the impact HIV/AIDS is having on women and girls. While great progress has been made in the area of HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, women still represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group. Did you know every 35 minutes a woman is tested positive for HIV in the U.S.? To me that is an alarming number for my community, so I am doing the least I can do to help. I will have a dedicated post on March 9th and rock my red pumps on March 10th but before those dates I will mention it in every post to get you all involved.
The goal for the organization this year is getting 2500 blogs involved and painting the blogosphere RED. Will you join me? Here are a few ways to join in.
- Sign up to “Rock the Red Pump” and embed one of the five custom badges in the sidebar of your website and/or blog.
- Dedicate a post to the important issue of HIV/AIDS and women on March 9, 2012
- Snap a photo in your favorite pair of red shoes and share with them via their Facebook page, Twitter, and/or Tumblr.
- Spread the word and tell a friend!
There is more information on their website to be sure to go over there.
I'm ready to Rock My Red Pumps!
