Outfit Of The Day: The Red Pump Project

March 10, it's national Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, and The Red Pump Project was created to raise awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS in women and girls.  They use the red shoe as a symbol of empowerment to represent these individuals directly or indirectly affected with HIV/AIDS. Every 35 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States.

Two years ago, 125 bloggers "rocked the red pump."  Last year, the number doubled to 250. This year, their goal of 500 was exceeded when over 1,200 bloggers responded, WOW! To commemorate the day, they're hosting official "Red Pump" events around the country.  Check out the website for all info.
