We’re excited to announce that Red Pump is a finalist for the Best Cause Campaign in the Inaugural Black Celebrity Giving Awards. As many of you know…Every year around National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (March 10), we encourage women to rock red pumps (or any other style of red shoe) to represent the strength and courage of women affected by HIV/AIDS.
The anonymous person who nominated us left behind this awesome comment:
I would like to nominate the fabulous ladies of the Red Pump Project for the Best Cause Campaign Award! As a Chi-town resident, I am very familiar with what these women are doing to encourage other women to take a stand against HIV/AIDS. As a black woman, we all know that we are the highest target for HIV/AIDS infections so we need to pay attention. My sister and I went to the Red Pump fashion show last year and to see it in person, it made me really want to get involved in HIV/AIDS research and awareness and most importantly get tested. Since the fashion show, I have seen the Red Pump Project on TV and even in ad campaigns around the city. What they are doing for Chicago and all major cities across the US should be recognized, more people need to get involved with Red Pump.
