Illinois: Red Pumps Help Bring Attention to AIDS
March 9, 2010
The "Red Pump Project" is encouraging women across the nation to wear red shoes on Wednesday to bring attention to the day's designation as National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. Chicago-based bloggers Lovette Ajayi, of AwesomelyLuvvie.com, and Karyn Brianne Watkins, of TheFabulousGiver.com, launched the outreach last year. Project-related happenings include awareness events across the country and a March 25 fashion show in Chicago honoring AIDS activist Rae Lewis-Thornton.
