|HIV/AIDS Awareness Day|
The Red Pump Project raises awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. Red Pump uses the red shoe as a symbol of empowerment to represent women affected with HIV/AIDS.
Every year, the United States recognizes March 10th as National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). It’s a nationwide initiative to raise awareness about the increasing impact of HIV/AIDS on women & girls and encourages ladies to take action. While progress has definitely been made in the areas of AIDS prevention and treatment, women still represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group. This year focuses on this statistic, “Every 35 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States.”

I'm 'ROCKING MY RED PUMPS'
|Pumps-XXI/Everything else-NY & Co.|
I hope you ladies are rocking your red as well! I think this cause is pretty much AWESOME and well it's AWKWARD if you're not participating!
About my 'fit...
well the leopard 'thingy' was a $7.99 steal from NY & Co's intimate apparel line. It's definitely supposed to be a nightgown but I broke the rules here. Accessories were a bargain also. The pumps are a XXI 'yellow tag' purchase. I believe I got them during their Christmas sale in '09. I regret now that I didn't get them in black too. Red is my absolute favorite color so today's post make so ecstatic-in a sentimental sort of way.
What's your favorite color and how do you like 'rocking it'?
