In the end, the Red Pump was featured on 105 blogs across the country! That is absolutely amazing. When Luvvie and I were giving a speech last night at the Chicago Happy Hour, I swear a lump formed in my throat when I said that aloud!
A HUGE “thank you” goes out to every blogger who joined in our this journey. Thank you for believing in this cause and using your platform for an important issue. There is so much stigma that surrounds HIV and everyone who participated helped fight against it. Open conversation about HIV is the first step to making a difference.
I also want to shout out the Chicago Women’s AIDS Project staff members who attended the Happy Hour and discussed upcoming workshops and initiatives, the AIDS Foundation of Chicago for donating the educational materials and red ribbons, AND the crowd that braved the Chicago rain and came out for drinks, eats, and conversation!
We’re so thrilled for what the future holds for The Red Pump Project. Please keep in touch with our endeavors and please send us any ideas that you might have.
