About The Red Pump Project

National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is March 10th of every year. In observance of this last one (2009), Karyn of The Fabulous Giver and Luvvie of Awesomely Luvvie came up with the idea of The Red Pump Project.

Armed with the custom-designed Red Pump widget, Karyn and Luvvie put out a call for bloggers to “Rock the Red Pump” on their blog to represent the strength and courage of women fighting HIV/AIDS or affected by the disease both directly and indirectly. Bloggers were asked that, on March 10th, they embed the Red Pump Widget within their posts with a snippet of its significance, or rock the widget on their sidebars. When we put out the call for bloggers to join our cause, our goal was 100 bloggers. However, over 135 bloggers responded and "Rocked the Red Pump" on March 10th, 2009!

After March 10th, we continued to do work around the issue of HIV/AIDS through several hosted events, appearances on BlogTalk Radio and participating in AIDS Walk. We managed to raise over $3,000 for the cause, donating all proceeds to HIV/AIDS service organizations: Chicago Women’s AIDS Project , AIDS Foundation of Chicago and Project VIDA.

By the end of 2009, The Red Pump Project had 40 ambassadors in 20 states "Rocking the Red Pump" to raise awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women & girls.
