Rock The Red Pump

From The Red Pump Project website

“Every 47 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States.“
On March 10, the United States will recognize National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (NWGHAAD). Launched by the Office of Women’s Health, NWGHAAD is an American  nationwide observance that encourages people to take action in the fight against HIV/AIDS and raise awareness of its impact 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.

AIDS Prevention Initiative Nigeria (AIPN) is a foundation that has the support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to carry out AIDS prevention in Nigeria. Nigeria is doing a lot to educate people about the many ways HIV can be contacted and spread. Many misconceptions remain in our society especially about sexual practices that are dangerous. Slowly but surely the word is getting out and people are becoming more aware.

So O'Naturals is dedicating this post in support of The Red Pump Project. We humbly ask you to please take a picture of yourself in your favourite red shoes and send the Red Pump Project's FB page. When you send your picture to the Red Pump Project please indicate that you heard about it from O'Naturals. We appreciate your support and believe that with everyone working together, we can deal HIV/AIDS a deadly blow.

My Red Pumps

Keep it natural (and safe)!
