Every year, since I've known of it's existance, I've participated in the Red Pump Project on this blog. Now, I have two blogs, so Pigmented Pretty is rocking the badge, too. What's it all for? National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. I was last tested on 12/1/2010 (World AIDS Day); how about you?

Lemme give you some stats:

Every 35 minutes, a woman tests positive for HIV in the United States.

In 2006, teen girls represented 39% of AIDS cases reported among 13–19 year-olds

Black teens represented 69% of cases reported among 13–19 year-olds; Latino teens represented 19%.

Check out my sidebar for the RPP link and additional stats, as well as how you can support!

Sidenote: Happy Birthday to my BFF :)
