The Red Pump Project Is Back!!!

Are You Ready to #RocktheRedPump?

For the seventh year in a row, we are asking women across the country (and world) to Rock the Red Pump with us in the days leading up to National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day on March 10th. 
Our campaign aims to drive conversation around the topic of HIV by decreasing the stigma attached to the condition. We want women to talk to others in their lives about prevention of HIV, getting tested, and how to manage HIV/AIDS. More than just a fashion statement, #RocktheRedPump is a call to action, a call for conversation, and a call for support. 
Are you in? Below are five easy ways that you can #RocktheRedPump with us this month.
1. Sign Up! If you are a blogger, you can sign up for the campaign here. Once you register, you will be able to access the embed codes for this year’s campaign badges. 
2. Attend. We have four events happening across the country. If you are in Charlotte, Chicago, New York City, or Washington, D.C., we want to see you. Get all of the details in our latest blog post.
               
3. Shop. This week, we relaunched our Red Pump Store featuring two new t-shirt designs. To snag yours, visit our store or click the image below. Proceeds from the shirts help support our organization’s efforts.
                         
4. Donate. Your financial support is key to ensuring that The Red Pump Project can maintain its efforts to bring important conversations about HIV to the forefront for women and girls in our communities. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today via our fundraising page.
5. Rock your red pumps or shoes on March 10! We always love seeing photos of you all in your best and fresh footwear. Upload your pictures to social media and be sure to use the hashtag #RocktheRedPump.
