The Red Pump Project
Every 35 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States.
My daughter, who works for the Columbus AIDS Task Force, asked me to write this post. She is concerned that the continued growth of AIDS among women is under-recognized, under-funded and under-treated.
To show you just how serious I am about this, I actually wore red pumps to work today.
In case you don't understand the significance of that, one of the reasons I married Old Dog is because he's precisely my height and I knew if I married a man no taller than myself that I'd never be pestered into wearing high heels. Well, that plus he's totally adorable.
So here I am, posting their badge on my blog AND tromping my little-old-lady feet all over campus in my red pumps to make a statement.
So please check it out.
